It's rare I post back to back, but I just saw that one of my competition images from last year is on LinkedIn promoting image competition with PPA. This is my favorite image from the case of four I entered (I still need to share them here, I have been remiss) and I'm so happy PPA selected it to highlight image competition this year. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/ourppa_are-you-on-the-fence-about-entering-photographic-activity-6915654512204472320-oK1Y

Free Image on Pixabay - Sakura, Cherry Blossoms, Spring

Every so often I upload images to Pixabay so that others can use them for their own creations. Well, I uploaded some from my visit with the cherry blossoms, and one was named Editors' Choice almost immediately. That's pretty cool, as the EC images I've seen are pretty fantastic! This is my second EC, hoping for more to come. I'd rather get paid for my images but Adobe Stock didn't want these so I thought I'd share with the world for free. https://pixabay.com/images/id-7091532/

Give yourself a gift this year, the gift of education! Join VPPA's Northern District as they present Judy Reinford and Metamorphosis - From Photography to Art.

This all-day class will show how to look for images from simple vacation or zoo shots that can be turned into beautiful works of art. The purpose is to open up the mind of the photographer to think outside of the traditional box. As we continue to have little ability to travel to amazing destinations, we can dive into our own archives and find a few images of a subject that can be put together to make one amazing image. Painting techniques will be covered but the focus is on the compositing and the way of thinking. First-time painters will get groundwork and experienced painters will be able to run with this idea. Images will be supplied along with a few custom-designed brushes by Judy.
Judy will be giving away a seat to the Animal Image Makers™ conference ($750 value) to one lucky attendee (must be present to win).

PPA members receive one service merit, the last service merit officially being granted for an online class. The class will be presented live online on December 30, 9 am - 5 pm and a recording of the class will be made available to all registered attendees. $99 for PPA/VPPA members, $129 for non-members

My photo of Natalie received the Editor's Choice award on Pixabay! I thought that was pretty cool and wanted to share that news here. That means that she shows up in the Editor's Choice images, which is considered the best of the bunch.

The Professional Photographers of America (PPA) held their annual International Photographic Competition (IPC) last month and it was my best IPC yet! (I waited to post because they were still judging images for additional awards). Over 5000 images were entered, all competing against themselves (in a manner of speaking). IPC isn't a competition of images against each other - each image is judged by a panel of five judges who decide whether or not an image is deserving of a merit. What is a merit image? A merit image is determined by 12 elements - impact, storytelling, creativity, technical excellence, color harmony, presentation, lighting, technique, composition, center of interest, subject matter, and style. For me, competing in IPC makes me a better photographer as I improve my mastery of incorporating all 12 elements into my images. I try to incorporate what I am learning into my client portraits as well as my personal work, as the whole experience is about growing and learning.

All four of my images earned a merit and one of them was designated an Image of Excellence - this makes me a silver medalist. Electric White Tulip will be published along with the other Images of Excellence in a book, and I can't wait to hold it in my hands! Oh, and you'll notice that two of my images are of dandelion seed heads - this is because early in the pandemic I wasn't able to photograph people and so I picked my "models" from my lawn. Work with what you have, right?

My images will be on display during Imaging USA January 16-18, 2022 at National Harbor, MD.

A boy, a girl, and a TDB. It's a beautiful day for monarch butterflies!

She hung out for longer than I expected before taking off. She's unlikely to be a migrator and possibility might create a new generation that will fly to Mexico. There's no way to know, but it would be cool if we could truly observe what happens next.

“Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay.”—Barack Obama

Memorial Day is about the soldiers, sailors, and airmen (women are airmen too) who never came home in the name of freedom. It is a day to recognize the great sacrifices given. As you enjoy the day off, take a moment to silently (or not silently, it's up to you) thank those great Americans who gave their lives in service to our country.

Fully vaccinated and back in business!!

The annual International Photographic Competition was held last week, virtually for the first time ever. Over 5000 images were entered, in a total of three categories - I entered my four images in the Portrait Open category (the other two are wedding and artist). One of my images earned a spot in the General Collection which would usually be displayed at Imaging USA in January. Imaging will be online this January so I am not sure how they are displaying the images but knowing the Professional Photographers of America, they'll come up with something outstanding to recognize the achievements of 2020's top competition images.

This image is titled "Puppy Dog Eyes" from Phoebe's puppy newborn session earlier this year.

I'm currently attending PPA's Imaging USA, which is a fantastic conference for professional photographers. Last night we got the majority of the members of VPPA (Virginia Professional Photographers Association) together for a group photo after the first full day of the conference and I had to share that here, as I'm proud of my fellowship with these wonderful people.

Last week was a big week for photographers, the annual International Photographic Competition (IPC), which is like the Olympics, or the World Series, or the Superbowl of photography. It’s a competition not against other photographers, but against ourselves as each image is scored based on its own merit, based on 12 elements of a merit image. Five jurors evaluate each image and determine whether an image is a merit image. There are different levels once an image is determined to be a merit image: merit, excellent, superior, and exceptional. Through image competition, I find that I am challenging myself to do better, not just with images that I plan to enter, but with all of my portrait work. This year I entered four images in the photographic open (four is the limit in each category) and three of them were judged to be merit images. This is my 3rd year of entering IPC and I’m very pleased with how well I did. These three images will be on exhibition at the Professional Photographers of America photographic convention this coming January in Nashville.
