I’m thrilled to say I discovered Oxshott Arts and Crafts Society in June during the Open Studios weeks. The lovely people whose studios I visited were so welcoming and kind, and when they said that the society regards photography as an art I loved them even more.
It’s actually quite dispiriting to be told you’re not worthwhile by galleries and other Art Associations, so I joined up happily.
Now I have applied to exhibit with the Society at Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking. The event is from September 30 to October 6th, and I am thinking of submitting several of the Iceland images I have already posted about.
In addition to the ones you have already seen in my previous blog there are these:
Also a set of four images of trees, a study in changing the exposure time and adding intentional camera movement. As the exposure time increases the trees become more blurred. I know it’s a bit out of the ordinary but I am beginning to like this approach more and more.
I also like this brave little guy standing firm in the driving snow. He is one of the pictures I hope to show, but I am only allowed three and a couple of back up images, as well as some unframed prints and cards.
And finally this chap who is having a bad hair day in the strong winds which sweep across the open landscape.
He’s rather cool don’t you think?
