The Maine Photography Show

If anyone has ever entered a juried art or photography show, you know how much you anticipate getting in. When the letter finally comes, you eagerly open it, with anticipation and dread in equal portions.

"Congratulations! You have been accepted into the Maine Photography Show."

Oh thank goodness!

Knapp and I received these wonderful words from the Boothbay Region Art Foundation (BRAF). Knapp got his letter first before I came home from work and was worried about what he would do if I did not get a photo accepted too! He said later that he was considering shredding it and not telling me, but I definitely doubt that!

The BRAF is located in downtown Boothbay Harbor, Maine and have a very dedicated membership who put on this show in April. They hosted a really wonderful opening cocktail reception complete with food, live music and the awards.

We each entered 2 photos and were quite pleased to each have one photo accepted. The guest juror was Elizabeth Greenberg, the Education Director at the Maine Media Workshops and College as well as an instructor.

Knapp's accepted entry, Last Ride, was in the computer category as the photo is excessively colorized in PhotoShop.

My accepted entry, Quiet Time, was in the black and white category and is an infrared image shot with a modified Nikon D70. Experimenting with infrared film is a tedious process, but with digital it is really fun!

While we didn't win in our categories, we loved being a part of the show. Congratulations to the winners! Click here to view.
