NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY LUMINOSITY – THE IMPACT OF LIGHT

NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY LUMINOSITY – THE IMPACT OF LIGHT

This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, June 23, 2020

LUMINOSITY – THE IMPACT OF LIGHT

Light and its quality is the basic element of photography. There is an iconic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the airspace as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography, the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another.  Sunsets are beautiful and the midday sun is harsh. A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits; the late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches.  

For this call we are looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference. Glare, flare, shadow, fill light all work as do lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, streaming rays of sunlight on a floor or as seen passing through a dusty atmosphere.  There are examples everywhere. Show us your shots where light is a key element.  All 2D photo mediums are welcome.

There will be 10 cash prizewinners, 20 Juror Selections and 20 Honorable Mentions
