I have had a love of photography for over 30 years. In 2003 I developed Custom Photo Notes, which which was started as a business to market notecards, books and customized slide shows. I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, having completed the course in half the time, I was awarded merit awards from the school for two of my photos. I did a slide show for nursing moms several years ago, marketing them to lactation consultants and childbirth educators. I have had photos published in Jack Newmans *Guide to Breastfeeding* and most recently in Popular Photography's *Take Your Best Shot*.. I have had photos accepted into several juried exhibits on Long Island. I live on Long Island, north shore. I am the Organizer for the Long Island Photography Meetup for the past 3 years, with over 240 members.. I am the mother of 2 amazing daughters and the grandmother of 2 awesome grandsons. ronichas@aol.com www.ronichas.zenfolio.com www.nursingbabies.com

photo exhibit reception

Published August 14th, 2011

just came back from a photo exhibit reception *eye on long island*

it was held at the long island museum, i was annoyed that they charged $9 to enter the museum to view the exhibit...first time i have ever seen a charge to an opening reception....

i also find myself wondering what the judge was thinking when accepting some of the photos to display...blurry, out of focus shots are just not good unless it was planned for an artist view...i do not think that was the case with the photos i saw.

anyone have any thoughts on this?
