Three of the photographs I submitted to the Carnegie Center for the Arts 2019 Regional Juried Arts Competition have been accepted by the jurors and will be featured in this year's exhibit. The selected photographs are shown below.
Based out of Three Rivers, Michigan, the Carnegie Center sponsors this competition for artists living in Southwest Michigan and Northern Indiana. It’s open to works in all media. As an annual event with several years of history, this show always brings out excellent work from the area. This year's show opens on January 20 and will close on February 20, 2019.
As November enters its last week the trees have gone bare and a cold wind scurries over the frost and pockets of snow... But I'm just starting to scan film images show early in the month, catching the colors of autumn. Here's a first out take - a little stand of aspen in the Allegan Forrest:
Another take on the scene that I posted a few days ago. This was taken at the same time but at the start of a new roll of film - so it took another couple of days to shoot out the new roll and develop it:
I move the camera a little but mostly switched to a wider lens. Taken with a Pentax Mz-S, SMC F 28mm f2.8, on Arista Ultra Edu 200. I accidently exposed this at ISO 100 instead of 200, developed in Microdol X 1+1 for 9 minutes.
Yesterday (August 12) in the Allegan Forest. A heavy rain came down a hour or so before I arrived and a faint mist was rising in the heat. I have probably passed this spot a thousand times without noticing it, but this time I finally saw it.
Taken on Arista 200 rated @ 200 and developed in Microdol-X, 1+1, 9 min @ 20C.
