Hey, guys! Well its day 2 of FPPs convention and Salon competition is finished. Rumor has it an OurPPA member scored a 95!!! (hint: it wasn't me!) :)

I entered 4 prints, only one merited! :/ That's okay though, I'm not upset. I'm surprised, however, since the one that merited is the one I thought would score poorly and the ones I thought would score better both landed at 78 :/

I've aleady met a couple of OurPPA-ers here, and still looking for a couple more.

Trade show started today and I've already purchased a new battery grip & some extra batteries. Got more shopping to do in a bit... :D

I'm on the Convention Photography committee, so already got to use my new grip! :) Yay!

Back to the fun, just wanted to share.....

Is it true that a photographer scored 100 on TWO prints? That is what a little birdie told me. Just checking..............

BTW, do the merits that you get at this comp come w/ seals that count the 08 nationals?

It IS true, Andie. I chatted with him last night. Two perfect scores!! Sweet, eh??

Mark, no, but the next level (SEPPA) does if I'm not mistaken.

Cindi, you are correct. This is only a state convention so no seals. It has to receive an 80 or above at SEPPA (or any regional convention) to be an automatic national merit.

Hey, guys! I just got home. Sorry couldn't post earlier - I had limited connectivity most of the last 4 days.

I misspoke earlier when I said one of OurPPA members got a 98.... it was a 99! Congratulations, Sandra Pearce!

The fellow who got two 100s' name escapes me just now. I hadn't met him before this weekend. I'll get his name tomorrow. Did see both images today, though and they were awesome -- both art-tech and UBER creative.


This was my first merit ever.....

My other 3 entries scored 76, 78 & 78... a little disappointing, but gives me the drive to do better next time!!

I was happy to be one of the judges that gave Sandra that 99. I also met the guy that got two 100s. His first name is Fred, I didn't get his last name. but WOW!!!

I photographed Cheri's seminar today!

It was fantastic, Cheri. I hated Painter before, swear I said I'd never touch it again, but you made it soo simple today! I'm so ready to give it another go! You looked great, btw, and I got some good shots over your shoulder while you were working, the room was too dark to get many crowd shots so I kept my lens on you most of the time. Thanks for the great session! :)

Congrats on the merit by the way!!!

The guy who earned 2 100s is Fred Benson. He walked with like 20 awards. Becker, and President's etc.....

Hi Cindi;

Becker ... is that award named for the late Robert Becker ? I own a limited edition book he wrote titled "Best of Show".
