Past Presidents Night & Print Competition Awards
“Take A Longer Look” is about his approach to a photograph which will lend the image depth, which is the critical element to drawing any viewer into the image. John will take several vulnerable examples and work them after presenting the guiding principles. His thirty years of competing for a merit print in the PPA have given way to technical approach and applied philosophy in light, color, line, and circular observation which have influenced his 85% success rate for meriting an image.
