CCP Photo Comp Sept - Oct 2023 - This month's comp is closed please refer to current month's theme
Theme and Brief : Motion
Hang on with this theme!
We are asking you to capture MOTION in an image. Even though this may seem to be one style only you can approach MOTION in many ways.
First, what is motion?
~ The action or process of moving or of changing place or position
~ Motion is caused by forces - gravity and friction
There are plenty of scientific explanations too, but the way you can capture this in a photo can be as varied as the result you will get.
We look forward to seeing what MOTION you capture and how you have done this.
