You may remember that I posted about taking photos in the rain. We did have an ulterior motive for doing so. I sent the photographs to Lark Crafts in the hope of them being accepted into the new book Art Quilt Portfolio: People & Portraits being prepared. The original date for hearing something was mid-September if I remember rightly. So I had more or less given up on the idea that I just might get into print.
Well today I received an email to tell me that I’ve made it into the second round of judging for inclusion into the gallery section of the book. Apparently there was such a huge response that a second round became necessary. Now I have to wait until early 2012 to hear whether Dad’s portrait makes it into the book or not. I also have to get through the vetting process to ensure that the images satisfy the technical specifications. I don’t expect that to be a problem because Sqeze took great care to follow the letter of the law on that account – that was one of the reasons for photographing outside in the rain – to get the best light possible as no manipulation of the images was allowed.
