I Won a Photo Contest!

You read that right! I actually won a photo competition, the first one I’ve ever entered since I was a kid.  I guess you could say that I am 1 for 1, undefeated! haha.  The competition I entered was for the blog and podcast, Indecent Exposure, the subject matter was “White” which was curious since my last critique was just about 100% white!

There are actually four more photos not shown in this early picture of the wall.

The photo I actually entered was the one right in the middle.

I was literally jumping up and down with excitement.  Even though I’d already read the blog post saying that I won, listening to them say it made it real to me.  I’m not sure what I actually won, I don’t really need to WIN anything tangible, it’s just really cool to be recognized by someone.  That someone being the hosts of a podcast I really enjoy just makes it that much better.

The next photo competition they are hosting is “Night” which will be arguably more difficult.  Seems like pictures of “night” always look amazing.  I suppose I’ll do something like these… But how do I make them stand out?

So there you go!  Lemme know if you have any ideas of what I should shoot.  Right now I’m pretty far behind on my photography class work so I might not be able to compete in this one but we shall see!

  1. Thanks Dave! I'm still in love with the ones you took in Alaska. Makes me want to go there so badly! Despite the fact that I'm terrified of cold weather… yet I live in Missouri haha.
