DESCRIPTION OF THEMES
HANDS - VINTAGE - VIRTUES
Hands: One or more hands, used in a creative way, for example; doing something like writing a letter, holding, making, pointing. The photo must use the rule "filling the frame" in other words the hand(s)must be the main subject. The photo must be focused well, exposed well, printed well. If a photo is printed well given the poor quality of the film, credit is given for printing well, but deductions will be incurred if the film was poorly exposed or developed and is too light or too dark. See the photos below for example, and watch the video I found on Youtube here for ideas:
Vintage: Vintage refers to objects that are very old - or as you say, "old school" that are valued for their good quality, lasting value or that shows good characteristics of that time period, perhaps beauty. A photograph with this theme could be a still life of old objects ARRANGED in a creative way. I would also accept a widening of the theme to include abandoned, lost, beat up or weathered things as there can be a beauty even in cracked peeling paint on a wall! I would also accept the use of an elderly person captured in a respectful way that accents their years, wisdom and beauty (not just a snapshot of them smiling with your brother in front of McDonalds). OUR THEME OF "VINTAGE" can be interpreted many ways!
