Best Friends [Family Life Project 52]


The theme for the Family Life Project of

Best Friends

Nicely doubled with my entry for this years Summerfest Photography Contest.

The photo got an honorable mention and will be on display at the Summerfest Silent Auction Tent for the rest of week.

This is my third year entering this contest.  You can find my first year entry HERE (I won first place!) and my second year HERE (honorable mention).

It’s one of the only photography contests that I’ve entered and I think it’s really challenging.  

1.  You’re judged against all types of art. Everything from landscape, still life, wild life, portraits, and digital art.  I think it is a great challenge to judge entries against each other that aren’t even in the same category.

2.  Every entry must be taken within two days of the deadline, so you can’t submit something from the past that you love.  Every artist takes their photo on those same two days, so you really truly have to have an idea of what you want to capture beforehand.

Each year I draw heavily upon the concepts that we learn in the Lifestyle: Telling the Story class for visualizing my entry.  I’m so grateful for that class! It has made me so much more communicative in my work because I understand what to look for in creating images that truly tell a story.  Registration for a self study version of this course opens June 25th.
