December 2023 Rotating Subject: Photo Journalism. This is the spring 2024 ACCC rotating subject. There is no ACCC definition or restriction however, the club’s definition for this competition is: A Photojournalism image consists of an image with informative content and emotional impact, including human interest, documentary and spot news. The journalistic value of the photograph shall be considered over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility, photographs which misrepresent the truth, such as manipulation to alter the subject matter, or situations which are set up for the purpose of photography, are unacceptable in Photojournalism. The image may be color or monochrome.
December 2023 Special Techniques: Macro or Close Up This is an image of small subjects or parts of larger subjects. Achieving sufficient depth of field is the challenge with this technique. In some cases, just using a very small lens opening might be sufficient but in other cases some form of focus stacking may be needed. The image may be color or monochrome.
