“How To” Pointers for Black & White Photography
Ben Corda is one of two university photographers for Tennessee Tech University. On an average day you might find him roaming campus to find the right candid shot or next Instagram post, in the studio, or tucked away in a dark office editing. He strives to tell the story of the university each day in each shoot.
Jeff Roush has run a successful, high level, commercial photography studio in the United States since the early 1980’s. His company, Roush Studios, has a client list and customer base reads like a “who’s-who” in advertising. It can be viewed on his commercial website. Many large corporations and notable advertising agencies throughout the US have utilized his services over the years. Chances are you have seen his work somewhere but haven’t realized it. His talents took him from his early years in Toledo, Oh. in the 1980’s to Los Angeles, CA. and Phoenix, AZ in the 1990’s, where he spent 10 years in some of the most competitive photography arenas that exist in the world.
The March photo contest is all about images of churches — any building or buildings used for religious services, inside or out. A slideshow set to music will display the member-submitted entries. Following the show, the three top images in each category (Novice, Regular, and Master) will be revealed, along with the most favorite images as selected by the members.
Bonus Black & White Contest!
In addition to one of our six photo contests each year, there will also be a Black & White Print contest. Participating members will bring one mounted and matted print to the meeting. Two external judges will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each of our three division. The judges will present the awards and discuss their evaluation.
