T.A.P.P.A. Picture Competition

This month's T.A.P.P.A. meeting was a good one.  We had a photographer come speak about his work with pets and he did a live demonstration.  Michael J. brought studio equipment and borrowed a dog from a member to photograph.

It's always great when a speaker does a "hands on" demonstration.  I felt bad for Michael because the dog, a little collie, just refused to look at him.  Michael was growling, barking, throwing towels and waving treats around and the collie just looked around like a bored Diva.  It's not his fault, of course, you don't usually have 40 people standing around when working with pets.  :)

Despite the challenges, Michael got some great shots.

I entered two images in the print competition this month.  I won third place in "Weddings and Events" for this images:

... and first place with this image:

I also entered an album (which I rarely do...) because they needed one to fill out the category.  Most photographers don't have a lot of albums sitting around so we go months without having anyone enter an album in the monthly salon.  Last night, one of the members posted on Facebook that he was bringing some albums so I brought one too.  I won second place. :)
