    Not so much the 'business' of photography - more the pleasure from photography

    G'day all

    Just spent 48hrs at Clermont in central Qld and visited their annual show
    Like most country community shows they have an arts & crafts & photography comp - competing with the dogs & chooks & cakes etc etc

    Here's 2 pics of the photos submitted for their show
    *** I am well aware that many of us city-slickers would not dream of displaying our images all scrambled up like this but these locals don't seem to mind. For the 3-4 times I wandered past this display, there was never less than 20 people milling around the 3 display stands

    Photo comp-1


    Photo comp-2



    Regards, Phil
    Of all the stuff in a busy photographers kitbag, the ability to see photographically is the most important

    I agree that this in no way is an arrangement that most of us would be happy with.
    That said it did garner and maintain a lot of interest, from your comment.

    well, at least everyone had the same attention given to their images! What a mash up. But, as you show, it didn't stop people from looking and admiring.

    But by putting all these different photos all mixed up together, surely it would make the really good ones stand out from the crap ones. And in the second photo, it seems that they have been grouped together in a roundabout way. It looks like there is one group of sunsets and another group of flowers, one on people. It might not be a big high end photo show, but at least people contributed and got out there with their cameras,. after all, it was a country show

    G'day all

    Yes - from this perspective it does look a bit like a dogz breakfast
    There were 4 [age group] categories, each with the same subjects, so it is possible to see similar topics in quite different locations. The separators were coloured ribbons - so viewers could separate images

    For me, having been involved with APS Nationals during the 1960s - 1980s, I could not live with my pics being herded into a mob this way, however these locals don't seem to mind

    All prints were tacked to black card with a 2cm border, which was then stapled to the display board ~ again it would give the APS the frights

    All in all - it was an 'interesting' experience
    Regards, Phil
