Spring is coming soon. I even hear we have to spring our clocks ahead this Sunday. That’s a good sign, right? Well, it is not coming soon enough for me, so I am going to out to find it! Will be back with some new images upon return.
Yesterday was the opening of the EyeSights 2014 Annual Juried Photography Show at the Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury. There were 108 photographs hanging in the show out of 222 submissions. Two of them are mine. There were 20 awards given out – One of Them was Mine! I received a Special Merit Award for “Animals” for the owl picture above. I named it “Eyes on You.” Very exciting day! By the way, a big THANK YOU to Gene Bard for introducing me to the Refuge.
The images in the show this year are truly outstanding. I am so pleased to be a part of it. The show is opened through the month of March. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
I am taking a two night 50mm photography class at the Belmar Arts Council. Tonight is the second class. Our homework for the week was to photograph an object, an image with a person in it, and a landscape. Came up with these three shots after taking many photographs yesterday. These, however, have some editing in Photoshop. We have to bring them to class unedited (bummer). I usually do not photograph people, but I had a very willing model (Thank you B!), and was quite surprised how much I liked the black and white version. Learned a few things through this process. Hopefully will get some suggestions this evening.
