Featured Photo

Georgetown Bricks by Justin Mathews

Fortunately there is no formula for capturing a great photograph, however it’s almost always a safe bet to keep things simple.  Today’s featured photo is by local photographer, Justin Mathews, a student at The Center for Digital Imaging Arts (CDIA) in Georgetown.  In looking at Justin’s portfolio, it appears that he has a great feel for shapes, lines, contrast, and color, capturing them all with elegant simplicity.  It’s hard to tell if the photo above was taken during the day or night, although the ghostly clouds may give you a clue.

Much like the clouds and shadows above drift by in silence, so has the announcement of the finalists of the FotoWeek DC Juried Photo Exhibition.  You’ll notice Justin’s name, amongst many other great local photographers such as Meaghan Gay, Justin Hoffmann, Katherine Ray, and John Ulaszek.  Don’t forget to mark your calendars for FotoWeek if you haven’t done so already.  The week long festival of awesomeness runs from November 15th to the 22nd and is packed full of amazing events to take part in.  Remember, you have to register to participate.
