Projects

Designed to help members pursue their own style of photography.

A project is a series of three printed photographs submitted for constructive critique during 2018. The choice of theme for your project is entirely up to you. With your first entry, it would be helpful to include information as to what you are aiming to achieve with the three photographs that make up your completed project. At each review, you will receive written feedback on suggestions for your next entry.

Some typical projects:

  • Three entries suitable for my IPF qualification,
  • Improve my portrait work,
  • Produce mono images in square format,
  • Experiment with macro images,
  • Abstract patterns.

If you have any queries send an email to competition@offshoot.ie and as ever we’ll do our best to help.
