Member Share:

  • October's Topic: Over-The-Top

  • This topic has you going beyond what is expected, usual, normal, or appropriate.
    Merriam-Webster- excessive or exaggerated.
    Or, taken literally, poke your lens "over the top" of something to reveal to us what is there!

    “I like everything loud, over the top, dramatic.”
    Carmen Electra

    Helpful Techniques: Take a risk while shooting or in post production, but be very careful you watch your surroundings with safety in mind.

Congratulation to Best of Show winner, Sally Reis Vogt, for her image, Untitled #2. And to our Viewers' Choice winners Annie Lemoux, Heidi Gauthreaux, and Abbey Chamberlain. More winners can be seen in the October newsletter.

We had 90 entries this year - such a great response. I'm sorry everyone didn't get it - remember "the early bird catches the worm" for next year. And speaking of next year, we've been invited back to the Encinitas Library for the 2018 show running mid-September through October. Our judges this year were Robert Barry and Abe Ordover. We appreciate their time and hope you will read their comments about the show in the October newsletter. And thank you to our sponsors for their support of our show each year. Jim Gilliam and Cheryl Ehlers from the Arts Division, City of Encinitas, coordinate our show activities at the Library and we are so appreciative of their ongoing support.

Congratulations to everyone for another successful show. Remember to pick up your images on Sunday, October 29th, from 12-2 PM.
