What a great time I had at the Kansas Professional Photographers Association Spring Shutter Expo! I feel like my brain has turned to mush after trying to pack so much information into it in such a short time. I met lots of new people, made new friends, saw some of the most amazing images, took photos of a professional fashion model, learned how to “control the sun”, entered images into the competition, came home with page after page of notes and…..
Two awards! Oh yeah, I am just a little bit happy about that.
I’m sure you remember a while back when I showed you the images I had picked to enter into my first ever competition; well I am happy to say I did OK!
My white daisy macro, White Sun, earned a third place award and I also came home with a second really cool award, the 2015 Novice Award, for my over all scores. The Novice Award is a very cool award given to the highest scoring new member entering the competition for the first time; and I am happy to have received it.
Before I tell you what scores the judges gave my images let’s look at what the scores mean…
65-69 Below Exhibition Standards
75-79 Above Average
80-84 Deserving of a Merit
…and how did my images do?
White Sun received a score of 80
Lyin’ Down also received a score of 80
Do You Want To Play received a score of 76
and Faux Bounty received a score of 75
Not bad for my first time around. Maybe next time I’ll see some higher numbers!
