The eleventh annual Nature Visions Photography Expo takes place Friday-Saturday-Sunday November 9, 10 & 11 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, a sparkling facility on the Prince William Campus of George Mason University in Manassas. The Expo is organized by photography clubs in Loudoun, Manassas-Warrenton, McLean, Northern Virginia (which meets in Dunn Loring), Reston and Vienna.
“Golden Morning”, by Yulan Guo, a resident of Reston and a member of the Northern Virginia Photographic Society, won Best in Category for Water Photography in the judging held on Sunday October 21 for the Expo. “Golden Morning” and five other photographs named as the best in their respective categories will compete for the Best in Show award, which will be announced at the closing ceremony of the Expo on Sunday November 11 at 6:30 pm.
Just over 750 images were entered from the six partnering Northern Virginia clubs, of which 273 were selected for the Expo's exhibit.
The Expo begins on Friday November 9, when Seth Resnick, named one of the decade's thirty most influential photographers by PDN magazine, will offer a full day workshop at the Hylton Center on "Seeing Color: Creating Dynamic Killer Images." On Saturday and Sunday November 10-11 Expo visitors can see the gallery of juried images and visit with over thirty local and national vendors of photography equipment, supplies, software, education and travel. Seven more photography lectures and ten workshops are available on those days at an additional cost.
