Anything goes, as long as it is your work. Open up your imagination and creativity.
For this theme take photographs of anything that you think represents “Beginnings“. Photograph a subject that makes the viewer think of the beginning of something. Examples: the beginning of the year, a race, a day, a night, a newborn baby, newborns in nature, like animals and plants. New infrastructure like construction, roads, etc.
Things that people collect. Examples are sports memorabilia, beanie babies. Things collecting dust would NOT be an example. Make the arrangement interesting and creative
Take a shot in jpg. No post processing editing is permitted. That means no cropping or any other changes to the image are permitted after the shot. Custom in camera settings and lens efects are allowed when applied in camera before taking the shot.
Sometimes less is more. Create a shot using simple elements with little embellishment.
