For those who don’t know what the Photo of the Month is :

The Photo of the Month contest is a way to develop your creativity and experience in photography.

Each month we purpose a topic. And you can make a picture referring to this topic.

You can purpose only one photo by topic. (send the picture at : potm.cpc@gmail.com)

At the beginning of the next month I collect all the picture and show them to the club. Then people vote for them favourite picture.

The picture who collect the biggest amount of vote win the title of the Photo of the Month, and the photo is published on the website of the Photo club (http://photoclub.web.cern.ch/).

 

It’s is a good exercise to jump into the world of the creative picture.

 

It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or not, if you shoot film or digital, if use an smartphone or a the last medium format camera!!

 

Don’t just take photos of something…. Think your picture, assemble all the things you need to do it, and then shoot!!!

 

 

Have fun and be creative !!!
