Herald Leader Scrutinizes Reynolds Building

Last Sunday the Lexington Herald Leader ran a story on the "Dangerous Art Dungeon" we call the Reynolds Building. For more information, check out the story by clicking HERE.

Vote for me...PLEASE! a la American Idol

I just tried this new thing today. I found this magazine called JPG. It works a bit like Flickr, but they actually publish a magazine from the images people submit. So I'm giving it a shot. The way it works is that they post your image and then people can vote on it to perhaps give it an edge in making it to the magazine. Yes, it'scorny, but it's fun. So if you get a chance, go visit my pic and see if you can't vote me into super-stardom!!! You can start by simply clicking on this image of The Sizzler here. BIG THANKS! (I'll keep you posted.)

Shots 96 (Call for Submissions)

In grad school I came across a unique magazine of eclectic photographs simply called "SHOTS." It's a quarterly periodical featuring black and white photography from ametures to professionals. The magazine struck me because its imagery seems to have a look and feel that parallels a great deal of the student work I see at school.

Each quarter SHOTS has a call for submissions to be featured in the coming issue. Typically there is a theme, but from time to time, it's open to any type of subject matter. There is a fee of $15 to non-subscribers to submit up to 12 images (8x10 prints or TIFF files), but it is free for those with a subscription (which is $25).

The next deadline for submissions is May 1 with no theme. I'm sending in 9 photographs to see what happens. Submitting work can be a humbling experience. I'll let you know how it turns out...if I make it in. Ha, ha!

It might be an interesting adventure to send in some work and see if your photographs might get published. It's pretty easy to do. For more info on submitting, click HERE. Remember, they must get your work by May 1. There's still plenty of time. Good luck!

Quelle heure est-il?

ART 120 (Photography) at Georgetown had its semi-annual lighting demo today. We explored the normal and perhaps "abnormal" uses of lighting with hot lights and flashes. If you’d like to see the results, click HERE to view the pics.

Printable photos are now ready to download HERE.
