This year’s Roswell Photographic Society Open Juried Exhibit 2010 is now on display through November 26th. The show will be available for viewing, free of charge, at the Roswell Visual Arts Center. The 85 images on display cover the categories of Landscape/Nature, Architecture/Travel, People/Animals and Abstract/Still Life. I have two entries that were juried into the show.
What does “juried” mean? A juried show is where photographs are submitted for entry and a judge(s) selects the photographs that will make up the show. This year there were more than 320 entries and 85 were selected for the show. Two of my entries were selected for the show:
Sunrise on the Highlands (click photo to enlarge) was shot this past June at the Atlanta Athletic Club, in Johns Creek, Georgia. My employer sponsored a day at the club and I took advantage of the beautiful scenery on the golf course prior to the shot gun start.
Sunlit Trees, Smith Plantation (click photo to enlarge) was shot this past April at the historic Smith Plantation in Roswell, Georgia. I used an “impressionistic photo painting” technique where I moved the camera while taking the photo. The movement of the camera caused the colors of the sunlit trees to streak, similar to an artist’s brush strokes. If you squint, you can see the tree trunks and the green foliage in the branches as well as on the ground.
