$250 Barbara Stewart Memorial Scholarship Fall 2012

“Self Portrait” was the theme. Katherine Souza the winner for Spring 2012. Juror Prof. Holman Turner said “As I looked through the images, there were many that were interesting for a variety of reasons. And in many of them, there were minor or not so minor technical issues. However, the deciding factor for me was the fact that as I viewed this image, I simply could not get away from her. It was a decisive moment that was captured, and this is why I selected her. For a portrait should not only be interesting, but compelling – and I felt that Katherine was.”

Entries due Friday  Nov 2, 2
012  (just extended!)

Open to Beginning Photography Students currently enrolled in PH51.

“Light As Subject”.
The very essence of the word ‘photo’ means light. One way of looking at light is to think of it as the subject of the image itself or to follow it, see it, and in turn to help others see it on any subject of your choice. Tips: Time of day matters as does direction and quality of light.

The Barbara Stewart Memorial Scholarship was established by the ESL Department in memory of the late and beloved Barbara Stewart, an ESL instructor and photography enthusiast. Each semester, a beginning photography student is awarded a $250 scholarship in her honor.
