El Dorado County Photographer | Print Competition

I entered the October Print Competition for the El Dorado Camera Club on Thursday with 9 prints.  I’m honored to say that I got 5 First Place winners and 2 Second Place winners.  Here is a picture of the judge, Albert deBruijn, talking about some of the prints up for competition.  He was an excellent judge and I learned lots from him.  He spoke about quality of the print (focus, f/stop, etc), composition, emotional value, story, color, etc.  All the things that I want to know about as a photographer.  His photography is wonderful and he specializes in HDR. You can see some of the previous winners to his right.

Here are my winners:


First Place: Black and White Portrait

Dead Trees

First Place: Black and White Scenic View

She’s a Looker

First Place: Color Portrait

Bear and Striped Salmon

First Place: Color Animal

Nevada Central Railway

First Place: Color Open

Daisy in Fall

Second Place: Color Scenic View

And Finally

Salmon for Lunch

Second Place:  Color Animals

It’s always fun and exciting to contribute to a print competition.  You never know how the judge will judge your prints and what the competition might be.  It’s sometimes hard to hear the criticism, but always worthwhile.  If you want to improve your photography, it’s a great way to learn.
