I am a member of the Tallahassee Professional Photographer’s Guild, and at our meetings every month, members submit images for print competition. Prior to tonight, I had never participated because I was a little nervous, and because I usually forget to plan ahead enough to order images from my lab in time for the monthly meetings. I decided that in 2011 I was going to submit images every month, because it’s nerve-wracking, but fun, and it’s great for the critique you receive. Tonight’s meeting was the first time I ever submitted images, and I am so excited because one of my images was chosen not only for the Portrait of a Group category but also for the overall Print of the Month winner.
This is the winning image, from a session I shot at Oven Park last October.
