Monochrome Competition – January 16, 2018


On January 16, 2018, we will be having a competition with the theme “Monochrome”. Our judge will be Rod Rolle, who was one of our AV Fair judges this past summer. We had a great workshop recently with Hutch Hutchison, who gave us some great tips on converting and enhancing our monochrome images, so we hope to see some great entries for this competition. The deadline for entries will be 11:59 p.m. on January 9, 2018.

The guidelines regarding the Monochrome theme are as follows: An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e., of containing only shades of grey which can include pure black and pure white); OR it gives the impression of being a greyscale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image.

A greyscale or multi-colored image that gives the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning, or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of Monochrome.

Our judge, Rod Rolle, produces "Images With A Global View." Since graduating from Brooks Institute in 1986 he has built his business and a reputation as a both a corporate photographer and a photojournalist.

A native New Yorker, he has traveled and photographed widely. His work has appeared in many publications such as Time and Business Week. Sipa USA and Getty Images currently distributes his photographs and he has sold his images to over 220 publications in 36 countries. His 2009 photograph of Michael Jackson standing on top a SUV outside the Santa Maria Courthouse won him a spot in Getty Images’ Pictures of the Year Collection.

He taught Basic Photography at UCSB, Video Production through the UCLA Extension, as well as Advanced Photography, Digital Design, and Photojournalism at Santa Barbara City College.
