Faces Photography Competition

This competition is now closed

This month's competition concentrates on the human face. We encourage entrants to submit images which show expression: happiness, sadness, fear, anger, seduction, surprise.

Remember that good lighting is essential to bring out the beauty of the subject and also placement of the head is also vital in creating a memorable image, these include: Full Face, 2/3 Face and Profile.

Photofinishing and postproduction are also essential and those extra moments spent putting in the finishing touch can pay dividends.

Photo Quote: We take language into our minds; we read words in the same internal voice with which we think, remember, pray. But when we look at paintings or photographs, the reverse is true. If the image corresponds to our most intensely personal, yet archetypal, yearnings and memories, we don't take the image in, we move out of ourselves into the image, as though it were another world, a hologram whose forms of light are ghostly angels, or a dream whose physical reality is suggested by what we see on the surface of a canvas or a page. We connect with the image as though we had lost it within our own memories and are now surprised to find it represented outside ourselves, vital and luminous, charged with energy. - Jayne Anne Phillips
