PHOTOGRAPHY AS FOOTWARE – Saturday
GrEGORy Simpson will read several essays from the ULTRAsomething blog, answer questions, and willingly discuss any topics normally avoided by photographers who actually have something to lose. Through the miracle of osmosis, participants will gain valuable insight into using one of their most important, yet oft-overlooked photographic tools — the cerebral cortex. With “10” being defined as “motivational and wildly entertaining,” and “1” being “awkward and downright tedious,” Photography Footwear promises to be a solid “3.”
LHSA PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST
John Lehmann, 2016 photo contest judge, will review several of the images submitted for the contest and comment on their strengths and weaknesses. Winners will be revealed during the Saturday evening reception.
