The Photo Fun 2014 contest has come to an end. The Wooden Horse Arts Guild offered this contest to any young photographers, grades 5 – 12 throughout the State of Vermont and were pleased to receive entry photographs from 23 young Vermonters from 16 Vermont towns. To help better understand photography, the use of the camera, lighting, and how to compose their photograph in taking pictures of many and varied subjects, the students were invited to attend a free seminar which took place in North Troy on a beautiful day in August. Four professional photographers and a Visual Arts instructor from North Country Union High School, Newport, Vt. were chosen and directed to judge the photos based on Originality, Composition and technical details. Now, thanks to our webmaster, Steve Maas of Catamount Creatives, to see the winning photos, the judges and more, visit http://www.woodenhorsearts.com/photofun/index.shtml
Six Months have already flown , but the Wooden Horse Arts guild members and friends will never forget two of our artists who made their mark and helped the WHAG with its beginnings. We remember Adrien “Yellow” Patenaude and Robert Pasho. Their lives were filled with their love of art.
Couldn’t resist! Here is another Photo Fun Photo from Ruby Stearns. Up close and personal! “MR. GOLD” (One of the Judges actually fell in love with this frog!)http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
Here’s another Photo Fun Photo from Linden Griffiths of Johnson. These wonderful colors and the arrangement of the flowers give us a “summertime” lift, especially on this rather cool day! “Sky Blue and Sunshine Yellow”!
“The Bear” on previous Blog, belongs to William Paulson, Grade 6, St. Albanshttp://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
Here’s one more this morning before I leave for Garden Club…….
This is a nifty shot and I wonder if you know where Toby took it??? This is “The Bear” by 6th grader, Tobias Ham of Sheffield. The judges called it a silhouette! (even though when enlarged you can see it all!)http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
Soon you will be able to see all the Photo Fun entries on the web. I’ll let you know! In the meantime, here’s another I like very much from 11th grader, Christian DiFranco of St. Albans. He used a Powershot to get this image:
