From The Grandstand To The Gallery (And Sport Photo Tips From CNN)

Posted by 5 on

Truth be told, I'm a BIG Yankees fan, but this story is really cool (and since we're WAY ahead in the standings), it's worth sharing... The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in partnership with the Boston Red Sox, announced the winners of its online photography contest Grandstand to Gallery: The Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park Photo Project. Six photographs, chosen from 700 submissions, are displayed in a special exhibition at the MFA on view through October 3 near the Museum’s State Street Corporation Fenway Entrance. Grandstand to Gallery marks the first time the MFA has used social media to gather works of art from the community for display in an exhibition. The contest, launched in late April in celebration of Fenway Park’s centennial, invited fans of the Red Sox and MFA to upload their favorite Fenway photos from the past 100 years to the MFA and Red Sox Facebook pages and RedSox.com. The six winners, in addition to having their works displayed at the Museum and online at www.mfa.org, will be honored at a reception at the MFA  when the exhibition debuts, and will later be recognized pre-game (Red Sox vs. Chicago White Sox) at Fenway Park, where the winning photos will be projected on the video board. You can click here to see a slideshow of the winning images from MFA's website. Also, as the days count down to the opening of the Summer Olympics in London, you may be psyched to get some great action & sports shots. We'll be having our quarterly "Sports & Action Class" on August 22nd, but if you'll like some pointers now, click here for a "Sports Photography Master Class"  from CNN. If you need some personal help (or a lens or two...), we'll be happy to help you out so come on in. Our class this week is "Beyond The Basics-Intermediate DSLR Techniques" which takes place this coming Thursday (7/26) at 6:30 PM. If you've taken our Basic DSLR class or have dabbled in taking pictures beyond the "auto" mode, this class is for you!
