We are into the first week of our family theme and you are already creating your own interpretation of this topic. There is so much you can do with this.

It doesn’t have to be your own family, nor does it have to be a smiling representation of the subject. It could be a close up of hands or siblings wearing matching outfits, or a skype chat with a distant relative. Our members here have submitted their ideas.

Peter Butler sent in this charming image called ‘Two Halves, Perfect Fit,’ which instantly made me smile. I love an emotive image that can capture the tone of the subject and transfer it to us.

I have also found Gareth Morgan’s image thought evoking. It is titled Family Memories, and this image has cleverly captured the tone of nostalgia. And Gareth has also brought a smile on my face with his quirky image ‘Aunt Sally’.

I hope you have a few more ideas to chew over by next week so we can perhaps feature your images on our page. You have until the end of the month again to get your entries to us to be in with a chance of winning £25 from Harrison Cameras.

Runners up win an 18x12 print.

“We will cover a number of inventive photographic assignments on our journey”, said a spokesman.

“At the end of each day we’ll return to the studios to view and discuss some of our images.”

The course will involve walking between three and five miles a day at a leisurely pace.

It is limited to a maximum of eight people to ensure they each receive some one-to-one tuition pitched at their personal level.

There are a limited number of digital cameras that can be borrowed free of charge if required.

The course costs £150 for the weekend with refreshments included.
