This first week in June is, and has been, pretty busy for me. The Introduction to the Landscape & Nature Photography class I co-taught with Lee Kirchhevel went very well. There continues to be a lot of interest by those who wish to advance from taking just snapshots to something they are proud of hanging on their walls at home. It's very satisfying for me to share what I've learned with other's so they too can create engaging imagery for themselves.
Earlier this week I was interviewed by Tristan Jud of RAW, an online photography magazine/blog site in Australia. Once Its published, I'll be sure to post a link.
This evening (June 6) I'll be giving a presentation on landscape fine art photography to the South County Photo Club in Aliso Viejo.
Tomorrow evening I'll be attending the Artist Reception in the East Grandstand at the San Diego County Fair where I have three photographs being judged this year. I'll followup on the results as soon as I know something.
Finally, this Saturday June 9th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm, I'll be attending the Artist Reception at the Escondido Municipal Gallery on Grand Ave. The Photo Arts Group's theme this month is "Out of the Dark". Please join me there if you can for conversation, appetizers and beverages--all free!
Update: The results for the San Diego County Fair Photography competition are in… My image “Genesis” displaying the glowing Kilauea caldera under the southern Milky Way received a 4th place in the the Night Photography category. The quality of this year’s entries are the best I’ve seen. It seems each year the bar get raised a bit higher. I’m not sure what I’ll need to do next year to get a ribbon.
