Last weekend, Exposure Symposium 2013 was held in Calgary Alberta by Professional Photographers of Canada – Alberta. I submitted 4 of my images for competition. I was in a gallery at the judging session and had opportunity to hear all comments made by five judges. They are all master photographers and certified for judging. I believe professional means they have ability to perform thing regular people cannot so. All judges are like physicians diagnosing X-ray. They found things photographers had missed in creative process accurately. The difference from physicians is they were judging images from artistic points of view.
So my results…two images were rejected, one image was accepted and one image got merit. According to some photographers, these results were not so bad for me who joined PPOC one half years ago and tried a competition first time. AND more exciting news is I won the best in class award in Pictorial category. I know this is just small step. I have to work even harder.
Well the winning photo will be exhibited in upcoming show at Higher ground cafe from March 5th. More details about the show will be informed. Stay tuned.
