2015 Entries from NIHCC members
Nature Visions Photo Expo was held Nov. 13-15, 2015, in Manassas VA. The NIH Camera Club had a total of 38 images selected for the show (27 in the Nature exhibit and 11 in PhotoArt) from 11 photographers (Kay Norvell, Suzanne Dater, George Lea, Bruce Liffiton, Louise McLaughlin, Gosia Klosek, Stan Collyer, Saul Pleeter, Cathrine Sasek, Gary McDavid, and Jim Turner).
Eight of our images (from photographers Gary, Saul, George, Suzanne, Cathrine and Jim) were candidates for the Peoples’ Choice Awards, meaning that they scored in the top few images in their categories.
Jim Turner’s image “Self Portrait” won one of the Expo’s top prizes: the 2015 People’s Choice Award for best image in the Photo Art competition.
Many of our members attended the Expo and enjoyed three days of inspiration, education, fun and camaraderie. Highlights included Marc Muench’s superb all day session on Friday which was packed with excellent tips and beautiful images, and Joe McNally’s inspiring and entertaining presentation on Saturday evening.
Attendance at the Expo broke records yet again, all the talks and workshops were well attended, and the vendors were selling great gear at discount prices.
