Logan, Utah Summerfest 2014

Summerfest is taking place this week and once again I've entered the Photography Contest. It's a fun contest that takes place the week of Summerfest. Beginning on Monday you have to take, edit, print, frame, and turn in your photographs by Wednesday at noon. They then get judged and awards are given Wednesday night. From Thursday-Saturday they are on display during the Summerfest weekend for others to see and well as a silent auction for those interested in purchasing the photographs. It's a lot of fun and can be stressful at times. Check out the other years entries for 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.
"Sweet Dreams"
I have been excited to create this piece for a while now and lucky for me he came a couple weeks early so it was an easy decision for my summerfest entry.  

"Gumball Splash"

Like I said above taking photos with a deadline can cause a little bit of stress. Tuesday night I still hadn't found what I wanted to do for my second entry. High speed photography came to mind and it's easy to do indoors....after experimenting for a little while this is the final result.
