THEME: ''Seen'' or ''Scene'' in KITCHEN FOIL 

''Bugles and Trumpets playing!!!!! This year’s theme or topic is “Seen” or “Scene” in KITCHEN FOIL It would be great if at least some FCC members took this project on for a few months. Over the years I’ve found that exploring the reflections in foil can be very challenging, but extremely stimulating. It’s a great project for working on three or four times a month over several months, not just doing it once for the sake of the competition, because so many different factors from lighting to lens choice will influence the results. In other words, by repeating the exercise several times you will extend your vision, which is worth more than coming first in the competitions.''

The Freeman Patterson Fine Art Competition is an ideal way to gain valuable exposure for your artwork, increase your confidence, and exhibit your talent. It is also an excellent opportunity to foster your talent and grow as a photographic artist. 

What is Fine Art Photography? The term "fine art photography" has no universally agreed meaning or definition: rather, it refers to an imprecise category of photographs, created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer. 

The basic iidea behind the genre is that instead of merely capturing a realistic rendition of the subject, the photographer is aiming to produce a more personal - typically more evocative or atmospheric - impression.  One might simplify this, by saying that fine art photography describes any image taken with a camera where the intention is aesthetic (that is, a photo whose value lies primarily in its beauty rather than scientific (photos with scientific value), commercial (product photos), or journalistic (photos with news or illustrative value).
