And the Winners are...

My photography has really taken off this year. In May, I was honored to learn I had 3 pieces accepted into an exhibition of "Sacred Art" in Galesburg, IL.
Guiding Light
Star Circle

In June, I had a Best of Category winner in photography at the Arts From the Heartland competition in Monmouth, IL. I had shot this at an abandoned farm house in Chase County, Kansas in April.

One Door Opens...

In early July I took 2 Best of Category wins for Landscape and Open Categories in the Security Savings Bank Photo Show in Monmouth, IL

The Strike

And, I just found out I got a photo past the initial jurying phase and into the Illinois State Fair Professional Artist Exhibition. This is an old familiar photo that several of my LJ friends will be glad to see. I shot this in an abandoned house near Griggsville, IL.

Silent Keys

I'm waiting to hear on the results of 3 photos I entered into a National juried show called America: Then and Now and 4 photos I entered into a juried show at the Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati.

Stop taking pictures of stuff IMMEDIATELY. That's a waste of time for you. Your person/concert photography is so gorgeous is makes me weepy! LOL THAT'S your specialty! It is totally your thing!

I shoot about 6-12 shows a week and the odd national act thrown in once a month or so. Just shot the B52's and Squeeze last week. Really, other than trying to figure out interesting lighting conditions, it's not that much of a passion for me. I enjoy the model photography but I really just do it to prove I can. It's ruins and still life that are my real passion.

But you're so damn good at it!

I just try to keep getting better at all areas of photography.

Congratulations! I am beginning to seriously look at juried photography shows, too. Best wishes to you.

It's a good way to get serious criticism of your work, I can say that. If you enter enough non-juried shows, you will win things eventually. It's the juried ones I feel most proud of getting into.

Beautiful stuff, man.

p.s. I thought about you the other day when I saw a recipe for frogmore stew.

Hey thanks, I appreciate the comment! Hahah on the Frogmore stew. I made it for a dinner party back in the Winter. Always reminds me of the East Coast.
