Tip of the Cap to Kim Murphy

I wanted to give a little tip of the cap to my long-time and current student Kim Murphy! She recently entered a piece to the Orange County Fair photography contest and received a ribbon for second place! This is really a huge achievement as this is no small contest! The competition is steep and many. So Congratulations, Kim, for an excellent piece and for having the guts to get it out there - and win!

Kim has come such a long way since I first started with her. Her work has progressed immensely and her knowledge of photography is now far above average. When I first started with Kim, she was, let's say, a little bit intimidated by her camera and the concepts of shutter speed, aperture and ISO (I hope I'm not speaking out of line here, Kim!). But now she handles equipment like a pro, her work is leaps and bounds above the vast majority of landscape shooters out there and she's loving every minute of it!

Kim, I am so proud of you and I can't begin to communicate how impressed I am with your progress! Keep up the excellent work!
