Foolproof Flower Photos

Our latest Washington Examiner article is now out. It is Garden Photography Tips straight from our photo contest judge's mouth. Yes, reading it WILL give you an advantage in next year's competition. Read it online (Feb 9 edition - page 60) or grab the print version at the red street boxes around town today - the article is on R4 (Real Estate section - page 4). It is also in the Baltimore Examiner edition online (Jan Feb 9 edition - page 78) or print version on R14 (Real Estate page 14).
Two quibbles:
~ In the DC version, why is this printed in black ink and not on one of the color spreads? At least was hoping it'd be in color online, if not in print. Oh well, gives folks more incentive to see the photos in their full glory in the magazine and at the art show. The Baltimore edition has it not only in color, but also squeezes in an extra photo (that is Rob Rudick's winning entry at left.
~ And why is Evelyn Jacobs name at the bottom of the side-bar indicating she authored it? That is just bewildering as her name was nowhere in the text submitted except in the separate photo captions.

A New Schedule Addition:
Washington Gardener Magazine
