Reflections can provide interesting perspectives to a photo, they can be used in many different ways, from many different materials.
A night sky, a riverside, a city puddle, anything wet or even a reflective building can create a reflection.
A mirror or reflection can symbolise self realisation or other abstract concepts to provide depth to an image, beneath just a plain photo.
Experimentation is highly recommended, we want to see what you can come up with.

Some Tips and Hints from Our Judges
1. A good and strong photograph usually does not need a title or caption to ‘tell’ us what’s going on. Think about what you want to convey – take into consideration the composition and framing of your photo.
2. Think about the various techniques you can use, such as playing with lighting or textures.
3. Think outside of the box. This month’s theme allows you to be creative and push the boundaries.
Only have a phone? No Problem!
We don’t care what device you use. Know its limitations and work within the confines.
About the UNSW PhotoClub Challenges
At PhotoClub we FOCUS on improving our members’ photography. Our challenges aim to do that by DEVELOPING your abilities. It’s also an opportunity to get some good EXPOSURE. And if that’s not incentive enough, we do have prizes for our winners. So why not take a SHOT for this month’s challenge?
Challenge Details and FAQ’s
How do I submit a photograph?
1. You first submit photos directly into our Facebook group: UNSW PhotoClub 2019 (Please add #UNSWPCREFLECTIONS to the TOP of your posts in our Facebook Group.)
Deadline is the 18th of May at 23:59*
* Photos after the deadline are welcome but will not be judged.
How many photos can I submit?
Sometimes you can’t chose between a few so you can upload a maximum of 2 per challenge.
Am I allowed to post-process photos?
Yes. Feel free to enhance photos and apply minimal improvements (sharpness, colours etc.). No heavy photo manipulation will be allowed.
Can I submit old photographs?
We prefer to see what PhotoClub has taught you, but it’s up to you! As long as a photo or a close derivative has not appeared in any other competition including our very own PhotoBook or a previous challenge, you may submit it. And the photo has to be yours of course. Please DON’T include any watermarks.
Photo Usage Conditions
UNSW and PhotoClub have the right to use any photograph submissions at any point for marketing or other purposes including but not limited to social media and print publications. Don’t worry, all your work will of course be credited…and who knows, you may even win a prize!
However, all are welcome to submit.
