Seven members of the McLean Photo Club had a total of twenty-two images juried into the Nature Visions Photo Expo. That annual nature photography event, which is organized by McLean and five other Northern Virginia clubs, takes place November 9, 10 & 11 at the Hylton Center for the Performing Arts in Manassas.
Congratulations to Susanna Andersson, Bill Corbett, Minnie Gallman, Ursy Potter, Bill Prosser, David Stossel and Sue Teunis. A selection of some of their winning images is in the slideshow above.
Susanna Andersson and Sue Teunis each had one image unanimously selected by the Expo’s three judges. Those images will be candidates for the Peoples’ Choice Award at the Expo, and the images will be included in a traveling exhibit of Nature Visions’ best images next year. Congratulations again to Susan and Sue.
Just over 750 images were entered from six partnering Northern Virginia clubs, of which 273 were selected for the Expo's exhibit.
The Expo begins on Friday November 9, when Seth Resnick, named one of the decade's thirty most influential photographers by PDN magazine, will offer a full day workshop at the Hylton Center on "Seeing Color: Creating Dynamic Killer Images." On Saturday and Sunday November 10-11 Expo visitors can see the gallery of juried images and visit with over thirty local and national vendors of photography equipment, supplies, software, education and travel. Seven more photography lectures and ten workshops are available on those days at an additional cost.
Canon Explorer of Light Darrel Guilin will give a free 2 hour presentation on backyard photography on Sunday at 4:30 pm. Prior to Sunday afternoon, a daily admission for Saturday November 10 or Sunday morning is $10. Full details and prices are at naturevisions.org.

The McLean Photo Club is in its fourth decade -- and we welcome new members.
MPC's next meeting will be Wednesday November 14 at 7:30 pm in the McLean Community Center.
The November meeting will be a quarterly competition, for any type of photograph, with no limitations on subject matter or photographic technique or equipment. Members must pay their annual dues of $25 in order to compete; new members who pay at the meeting may compete as well. Guests are welcome at this and every meeting without payment of dues.
We compete in three broad categories. Two are for printed images, which are judged in separate color and monochrome categories. Within the color and monochrome categories prize ribbons are awarded separately for advanced and novice photographers. The third and final category is digital images, in which color and monochrome images compete together. Again, there are separate prize ribbons in the digital competition for advanced and novice photographers.
All the rules for the competition and for submitting prints or digital images are online at http://www.mcleanphoto.org/competition.html.
