It’s all about the light! Light and shadow have been the foundation of photography since the beginning. While illumination is important, darkness is an equally compelling component and, together, the elements of a successful photograph. Show us your best light!
The SE Center is looking for all forms of imagery, black-and-white, color, or toned photography- all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
