Last night was the Capture Cincinnati release party. I received an e-mail last week stating that I had at least one photo in the book and that one of my photos was awarded one of the 25 prizes. So after a week of suspense I finally found out that my photo of Abby won second place in the “People” category! I think the most exciting part was seeing four of my photos in the book- all printed LARGE! They look incredible! I saw many familiar faces at the release party. The top photos in each chapter were truly phenomenal- you can check out the winning images HERE.
Above are a few pics from the release party that were posted on Cin Weekly’s site. The first photo is of Dennis Camp (last years cover winner and this year’s winner of the Nature Chapter) and yours truly. Dennis’ winning photo is in the top right. Next is David Williams who used to work in my school district next to his winning photo. David and I were in a Sycamore photo club together. Last, but not least is Chris Thompson- another winner from last year. I was also able to meet Jennifer Summer- who won the People category this year. I am a huge fan of her work. Christina Lawson (this years cover winner) also made an appearance even though she just had a baby a week and a half ago!
