Personal Photographic Projects
Larry Petterborg

What is a “personal photographic project”? There is no one simple answer to this question. The phrase, “personal photographic project”, probably means something different to each one of us. For me, each project I do is different and why I do them differs one to the other. At its most basic level, a project is a way to creatively express yourself with photographic images, learn/practice techniques, and/or tell a story. A personal project is a body of work that is unique to its maker and represents their singular vision of something meaningful to them. Each image contributes to a larger story. Taken together, the collection of images shows us how the photographer sees and feels about their world.

 

      

Larry's entry Just Checking has made it onto the finalist list for the 2021 awards.

September Field Trip

Deep Ellum - September 25
Details HERE

           

Deep Ellum is one of the most historically and culturally significant neighborhoods in the city of Dallas. https://deepellumtexas.com/history  Deep Ellum is also a great place to photograph. With the help of our past president Steve Reeves our September Field Trip will spend the morning in this picturesque part of Dallas.

Date: Morning of Saturday, September 25, 2021

Location: Look for an email from DCC during the week before the Field Trip to Deep Ellum. Steve will be sending out a map of the area with notes to help you on your “self-guided” tour that will include helpful hint on places to visit and park.

Lunch: As we try to move out of the COVID restrictions and still stay safe we will be plaining a group lunch at an outdoor venue. Not knowing what the conditions will be by the end of the month we only want you to attend if you feel comfortable doing so. Time and place will be sent out with the Field Trip information later in the month.

Slide Show: Please submit up to ten (10) JPEG images resized to 1920 (w) x 1280 (h) to Steve Reeves, steve@makeshiftphoto.com  as email attachments by Sunday October 3rd.  

Please contact me if you have any questions. Hal            Hal@SABooks.net
