Hello, Photoion students and fans. It’s time again for the Photo of the Month competition!

Each month we have a competition with a different theme that gives you the chance to win £100 in Photoion course vouchers. The competition is open to everyone.

This month’s topic will be Summer Landscape.

The longer and lighter days of summer offer more opportunities for you to get out there and capture beautiful images.

Here are a few tips to help you take the best images possible:

– Experiment with your use of light: Summer offers more light than any other season, but experimenting with that light can produce more interesting results. For example, taking an image during the “golden hour” will produce vastly different results to an image of the same subject taken at mid-day. So experiment with the time of day and try and capture your subject at multiple times to achieve the best results.

– Use colour: Summer is one of the most colourful seasons, so be sure to introduce some of that colour into your images. Be careful though, as if you take an image of an area filled with the same colour family you run the risk of the final image looking flat and dull. Be sure to choose a subject with a variety of shades and hues to give you more contrast to play with to get a better image.
