The ability for us as human beings to conceive a photograph and then go out and execute said photograph first with your mind, heart, soul and camera is called visual literacy. The word photography in it's simplest form means recording with light. Every photographer regardless of their expertise puts part of themselves into the photograph. In 1/100 of a millisecond they stop the world. The most difficult part to me is presume I am qualified to judge another person's work. I truly believe the only person that can judge your work is you. Having said that I've looked at each photograph a minimum of five times and found all of them extremely inviting and there was a message in each one. For me they're all winners. Thanks very much for the opportunity to be part of the creative process. Remember photography is still in it's infancy and the only medium I know of that every man woman and child is on equal footing. As my friend Willie Nelson would say, "Hope to see you on the Road Again..."
Judging a contest is not an easy task. There are so many things to consider. I divide photography into three categories - snapshots, pictures and photographs. All have their place but as a photographer you strive to make photographs. There are only a few truly great ones that will last over time. So most importantly are they photographs? Secondly, do they meet the subject criteria (I can only give my personal thoughts on this so it is subjective.) Is there something uniquely special about them? Were they executed well? Of course sometimes one just jumps out and speaks to you. Who can really judge someone else's work? I've gone over the photos many times and had to keep narrowing down my choices, based on the above criteria. It was extremely hard as there were so many really good ones. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of the creative process. I look forward to coming out and doing a class hopefully sometime in the future and look forward to meeting all of you.
