This past weekend, I entered my first ever Print Critique at the Professional Photographers of Louisiana (PPLA) spring seminar that Tony & I attended. I was super nervous, but was hoping to at least get a passing score.
Since it was my first time, I wasn’t real sure about what they were looking for. 5 of my images scored in the above average category, but my Forks with Tomato scored as EXCELLENT!
Not only did I get 1st place in the Commercial category, but my image was chosen as a distinguished print by one of the 4 judges. Each judge picked their favorite image out of the 81 submitted, and mine was 1 of 4 chosen!!!! I am super excited and had to share.
This image was taken on a 4×5 view camera while I was attending Hallmark Institute of Photography. It is one of my all-time favorite images and now its a winner!!
