The Bureau of Land Management-Nevada selected the winners of the Nevada 150 Photo Contest, a part of BLM’s participation in Nevada’s 150th Year Sesquicentennial. The photos highlight adventures, activities and historic sites on public lands.
The winners were selected from over 300 entries and will be featured in a calendar and displayed on social media and other venues. The photos were judged on originality, artistic composition, technical quality, photographic technique, and whether the photograph showcases the best of BLM-Nevada.
We will be highlighting each winning photo throughout the course of this week! Follow along using the hashtag #nv150 on Tumblr and Instagram.
I feel very comfortable behind the Lens capturing the moments as they happen, whether shooting the city or a beautiful smile. I have been taking pictures most of my life and the greatest thing is to know you captured something others can relish for lifetimes to come… I shoot with the Canon 50D and use two lens’ the 50mm 1.8 and a 28-135 is macro both by Canon. I love deep moody Black and White as well as Sepia it really speaks to me in a very unique way.
To me photography is all about the individuals perspective on the subject they’re shooting. You can’t judge someone else for something you may not be able to see yourself. So, I don’t believe it’s possible for someone to take a bad photo.
Pictured is my photo Forever taken with a Fuji X100. It represents my previous statement, and what was going through my mind while looking up when walking through the streets of Charlotte where I live.
