MagnoliaMagnoliaAward winning photograph at Lodi Community Art Center and Lodi Grape Festival. I'm so thrilled to have "Magnolia" chosen for 2nd place in the "Everyday Objects" category at the Lodi Community Art Center.  I entered it in the Member Show where talented members in all media are competing.  One of my favorite photographers is Imogen Cunningham.  She did quite a study on Magnolias.  Recently, I saw the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit at the DeYoung Museum.  Remembering that these two women knew each other and likely inspired each other, I thought I'd work with the subject in their honor.  Not that I'll ever be that famous, I am happy with my result.  Flowers can be so cliché in photography, but I loved the challenge.  It took me a few days, a couple of flowers as subjects.  Big thanks to Pete, my husband for climbing the ladder to pick the blossoms from our tree.  Once I had the image and worked with it Lightroom, Photoshop and Silver FX is started the print process.  After several runs with the Epson R3000 and a few pages of Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper (cringe) to get the final result.  I haven't had a chance to see it in the gallery yet.  Maybe tomorrow, but for sure at the reception on Friday, July 11.  Hope to see you there.
