Last Day to Enter!

You only have today left (30th November) to enter the Monthly Competition. Even though we receive up to 2,000 entries per month sadly 100s of our talented members as yet have not participated. So for all those who haven’t submitted then make this month extra special by uploading your images today.

Remember that there is no Monthly Image Competition in December, so November is your last chance to enter and put you images forward to the Photographer of the Year Awards at the 2012 Convention.


Forgotten the upload instructions - no problem visit the Forum

Christopher Grey's Vintage Lighting

Christopher Grey's Vintage Lighting: The Digital Photographer's Guide to Portrait Lighting Technique

As photography grew as an art form, so did the technology that backed it up. In particular, lighting styles changed to reflect both the advancing technology and the changing social mores of each decade. As fashion and society changed, so did photography. Moving from the 1910s to the 1960s, Christopher Grey walks readers step-by-step through several shoots designed to emulate the lighting styles of each period, providing practical guidance as well as a history of portrait photography.
