ASMP/Oregon Portland Squared Photography Community Event
This past weekend I participated in the 2nd annual ASMP/Oregon Portland Squared Community Event. The first day the 70 registered photographers were randomly assigned one of 70 squares to shoot and bring back the following day for editing, submission and live judging. There were 7 categories each photographer could photograph and submit, with a total of 5 entries per person allowed. A local photography studio, Studio 3, was our hangout both days. It was so cool to socially interact with the photography community of Portland. I met a bunch of really neat people and I look forward to future collaborations!
It was thrilling to watch the judges process all the images people took in a 24 hour period for the awards. And It was educational to view everyone’s photographic style and approach. Each images was so unique and had visual integrity. I received Honorable Mention in Best Lensbaby Image Category and Honorable Mention in Best Fine Art/Abstract Image Category.
I’m already looking forward to next year!
