Steven & Peggy Earns Merits in State Print Competition

It was a stressful but exciting week here at Sandstone Photography!

For those of you who don’t know, Tuesday was PPC’s (Professional Photographers of California) annual state-wide print competition. It’s a time for meeting old friends, making new ones. It’s also a time of secrete fear and stress, and sometimes even momentarily doubting your own abilities as a photographer, as your very best images go head-to-head with some of the best in the state (sometimes even the nation.) In case you’re wondering how this works, each print is held under a bright spot light before a panel of professional judges, who decide within 30 seconds or less the worthiness of your photographic talents. It’s intimidating, to say the least! And on some level, scarily reminiscent of spy interrogation scenes from those old war movies, where you find yourself fearing for the hero’s life. For one long moment in time, your very best is out there, naked for the world to see and judge. What if you’re not good enough? What if your worst secret fears come true?
 
Luckily, that was not the case this time around! Both Steven and I survived, with Steven (of course!) earning merit scores for all of his images (what else is new?) Here’s a quick look at a few of his entries:

Thanks to all who wished us well, and kept their fingers crossed for us. We certainly could not do what we love most without the support of our friends and family, and of course our clients. - Peggy Roosa
