I recently moved into a 2-story rondette house.  In case you are unfamiliar, it a 12 sided house with cathedral ceilings.  Due to the construction method, there are no overhead lights–none.  Cooking by stove light is an adventure.  You CANNOT enter this next Call without dealing with the light issue.  Investigate the idea…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Illumine. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($24), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…

*Editor’s Note: Please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on I have a soft spot for this gallery, and I want them to know they have our support…

Light is that which compels a photograph into being: shifting, glowing, luminous, obscure or brilliant.

The medium of photography brazenly defined: How our tools, environs and subjects respond to light.  Sometimes the light plays a more prominent role in a photograph, sometimes as a supporting actor and sometimes as the protagonist itself.

Low light, bright light and every stop in between. Light can be luminous & rich, or a stark spotlight, it can wildly dance, or softly edge darkness and cast shadows. Light can reflect and sparkle or be blinding and disarming. Natural light vs. man-made light sources: sunrises and sunsets, moonlight and neon light!

Learn more about the Darkroom Gallery online!Photographs are steeped in emotive qualities that go well beyond the work’s subject and content, an almost indecipherable layer is em-parted through the usage of light.

Open to all artists 18+
