Baby steps, but wishing they were big kid steps. I have my first picture published in a paper magazine this month. Momentum used one of my pictures from Flickr in their reader pics section. I was hoping it was going to be a little bigger, but I will take it where I can get it.
Also, I decided to enter some pictures in the county fair this year. I had a bit of time and figured it would be a good learning experience. It was exactly that. I had fun working through the process, the price was right, $0, and learned enough to be better prepared for next year as well as any other opportunity to show my prints. Competition is usually pretty high as we have a large amature photo contingent in the area as well as Brooks Institute right up the road. Out of 7 entries I was able to pull one honorable mention ribbon
Major lesson learned was to not let it go untill the last-minute, next year’s entries will be better presented for sure.
