No, there isn't (yet).  This is the second oldest open bug against

There have been patches to simply replace the OR with an AND, but the
problem is when you choose a category with children, you should consider
a photo tagged with any of its children to meet the criteria,
effectively meaning you OR the children.  This gets complicated from a
sql query perspective and from a UI perspective with multiple levels of
hierarchy - the user has to keep track of what check boxes will have
what effect.  Perhaps it would be more intuitive than I'm thinking,

There is an alternative method proposed for doing this, with screenshots
and a screencast attached to the above bug report.  I'm hoping to branch
f-spot soon for the purposes of allowing others to try it out and help
me get it Just Right so we can merge it in.
