The Monday Muse Week 20

The latest weekly amusement from RPS London.  This week, our muse is “antique and vintage”.

In 1853 on the 20th January, The Photographic Society (later becoming the Royal Photographic Society) was founded in London.  To celebrate The Society’s 163rd anniversary, our muse this week is looking for antique and vintage pictures. 

So this week’s muse is to post an image that is either genuinely old (from a family album, for example) or one that you’ve made to look old.

The Monday Muse is an ongoing initiative.  There are no deadlines and you don’t have to take the photographs in the week that the Muse is set.  Once you’ve set up your album, you can add to it any time.  A list of previous Muses can be found here. You don’t have to be a member of the London Region to participate - all-comers welcome!

Monday Muse Info

As the inspirational ideas we posted as part of the Bleeding London project proved to be so popular, we’re going to continue the theme with The Monday Muse.  Every Monday, we’ll be posting an inspirational idea for the week, with links to tips and suggestions on how to achieve the best images.  We’ll be featuring our favourites here on the blog and in our monthly eZine Capital Interest.  And just to add a bit of competition, we’ll be running a points league.  There is one point for posting an image and there will be occasional bonus points.  At the end of the year, whoever has the most points will receive a gift voucher to spend in the RPS shop. 

What to do next
