Prize Photography from the 2018 Utah State Fair
Photography is fun! More people are enjoying the hobby and business of photography than ever before. Today it is possible to take and view instantly your work without having to wait for film to be processed.
There are numerous categories in which an individual can enter his or her work in the Utah State Fair. No matter what your photographic interest is or what equipment you are using, you can produce an entry for the Utah State Fair that will be enjoyed by those visiting the Photography Division. Curtis Parker, supervisor of the Utah State Fair Photography Division, explains, “The photos entered into the fair inspire and challenge others to take up the hobby of photography. Even if you are not involved in taking pictures, viewing them is an enjoyable pastime. Since digital pictures can be processed in Photoshop, it is amazing to see the quality and versatility of the finished product.”
Parker would like to encourage creativity by having photographers look differently at the things around them. He challenges photographers to find interesting things in their environment. Think and shoot out of the lens!
The photographic division of the Utah State Fair is sponsored by Nikon Cameras. Their generosity is currently providing the Photography Department of the State Fair with many improvements.
