Linn Area Photo Club Annual Contest

Blue Cloth Flower
(Click thru if you're viewing this on Facebook as there are multiple photos.)

We had the Annual Photo Contest at the Linn Area Photography Club.  The judge was the Superintendent of the Photography Salon for the Iowa State Fair.  I learned a lot today - while he was judging a lot of folks had their cameras and were there to learn more about them - the object being to get out of the "automatic mode" and to use the camera to create photographs not snapshots.  A photographer's goal is to show "...the world has it has never been seen..."

We practiced bracketing and macro shots (the blue cloth flower).

Back to the contest - I received a Third Place in the "Scenery/Landscape" category and an "Honorable Mention" in the Portrait category.
