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.
Four photos by members of the Reston Photographic Society won a unanimous vote of the three-judge panel that selected images for the Expo’s gallery of Honored Nature Images. These images are featured in the online gallery above. They will also form part of a traveling exhibit of 53 Expo images in 2013.
Congratulations to Jan Master, Ellis Rosenberg, Gerry Rosenberg and Carla Steckley.
Four other RPS members also had images juried into the Expo: Ned Dickert, Vicky Eicher, Doreen Montis and Dawn Murphy.
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.
Canon Explorer of Light Darrel Guilin will give a free 2 hour presentation on backyard photography on Sunday at 4:30 pm. Prior to Sunday afternoon, a daily admission for Saturday November 10 or Sunday morning is $10. Full details and prices are at naturevisions.org.
