The Antelope Valley Fair is only weeks away and the community is busy preparing their submissions for the many competitions. The LPA is no different and Tuesday night at the Senior Center, many members and community participants came to our free photo mounting workshop. Approximately 35 people with multiple prints took advantage of an efficient workflow and the knowledge our members offered.
Participants brought their prints and foam core backing for mounting. The LPA supplied the spray glue, cutters and mounting skills to help everyone get their prints ready for the fair. There are specific rules for the fair photo submissions to maintain consistency and fairness to all. Go to the AV Fair website for the details. August 7th is the turn in day at the fairgrounds for all mounted images.
Comments from those participating:
“This is really well organized. I thought there would be long lines.”
“This was awesome. I never could have figured this out on my own”
“This seems like a really happy group.”
Thank you to all the LPA members who volunteered their time, tools and skills. There are many proud photographers enjoying their beautifully mounted images today because of you.
