It's cover contest time! The PPA and I invite you to VOTE for your favorite images, which I hope will include my portrait of "Troy" (pictured here).
To vote, you will be asked to create a login. Once in, you may pass judgment upon as many images as you like: the good, the bad and the ugly. Voting takes the form of a star system: One star = Not so great thru Five stars = Excellent. Not only is this entertaining, but just for playing you will be entered to WIN an iPod 2!
So, here's the link: Professional Photographer Magazine 2011 Cover Contest
To go directly to my entry, search: Tammy Russell-Rice and Troy will pop up. Or, peruse ALL of the images posted at your leisure--some 200-plus pages of them. The last time I looked, Troy could be found on page 196. So, don't try to do this while driving!

Maybe it stems from our days at the traditional photo lab (before digital cameras and the home ink jet printer), where production of 4x6 inch prints were the norm, but somewhere along the line we were conditioned to think of an 8x10 photograph as "large."
