It was a perfect day to visit the fair!
…not everybody looked happy though. I wonder why? LOL We visited the Democratic HQ; lots of smiles and activity.
Ah, yes. Another entry submitted for consideration in the MN State Fair Fine Arts Competition. This year: “Driving Rain” taken during an intense storm in September 2018.
Every year the MN State Fair Fine Arts competition presents a unique opportunity to be part of the Fair experience- and fail. LOL. It’s OK. Really. This year, I experimented with manual settings on the camera and black and white shots only- and submitted one of those photos. I have been inspired by the amazing work of Jef Bonifacino .
Here are some interesting stats from the 2017 competition: something like 2,025 entries were submitted from across all mediums and only 14% actually made it in to the exhibition! Yep. It’s a tough gig.
Anyway- here is my entry: “Ghost Flowers”- soon to be exhibited in my living room!!!
It’s that time of year when I begin to think about the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts competition. It has become quite a competitive experience, with photography a popular entry category . I have decided to focus more on experimenting and learning than the possibility of being selected to exhibit (less daunting) and am working on using the camera set to ‘manual’ in an effort to learn more about the art of photography. The cats are being very receptive models to that end!
