Jeff’s Photograph At The Phoenix Art Museum
What a great night. On Friday, February 3rd, we went to the Phoenix Art Museum for the showing of the selected photographs for the Iconic Arizona program. This included my photograph of a double rainbow in Sedona, one of 60 photographs chosen from the 585 entrants.
I met a lot of nice people that evening, and had a great time telling them about my photograph, and answering photography questions.
Here are people checking out the photographs. I spent a lot of time watching the people to see what photographs attracted them the most. It was like being in a psychology and sociology class, and was a whole lot of fun. While some people were drawn to photographs with interesting subjects and great composition, the majority seemed to be interested in photographs with pretty colors or showing places they have visited. I kept hearing, “Those are pretty colors,” and “I’ve been there.” While it’s not what I’d hoped to observe, it was informative.
Here I am outside the Norton Photography Gallery next to one of the two monitors showing all of the photographs that were sent in. These monitors will display the photographs through March 4th. I’m carrying my portfolio, which I showed to several people.
A special thanks goes to my girlfriend, Linda-Ann Stewart, www.Linda-AnnStewart.com, who took most of these photographs. She had the challenge of shooting without a flash, using only available light, and she did a great job.
If you get a chance, head on over to the museum and check out my photographs. Oh, and while you’re there, you can also see prints by some photographers who’s names may sound familiar to you, like Ansel Adams and Edward Weston.
