Circumpolar

Frozen Lenses is pleased to announce our statewide juried photography exhibition, Circumpolar. For many, the word “polar” conjures images of a volatile and extreme environment: isolated, wild and dangerous. However, some see these cautionary overtones as an invitation. Regardless of whether people come to escape the busy life of the city, test their grit in the face of the unknown or to simply experience the breathtaking beauty of a land largely untouched, one thing is for certain: the lure of the north is unrelenting, beckoning to adventure-seekers and lone wolves, alike. Frozen Lenses would like to see what it is that calls to you. Show us your vision of life, circumpolar.

"Portraits" Photo Contest Opens

April's theme is portraits! How you shoot portraits is entirely up to you (If you shoot nudes, make sure they meet Facebook's requirements before you post). All interpretations are welcome.

The contest will run for the entire month. There will be one theme for that month. Your job is to shoot something (or many things!) that fits in that theme. The themes are purposefully broad- we want to see your unique interpretation. Photos should be uploaded to our Facebook page. You can enter as many as you like using whatever process you like: digital, film, phones, alt process, manipulated... it's all allowed. Only pictures taken during the month the contest is running, please. Our Facebook followers will vote for their favorites (as many as they wish) by simply "liking" the photos. The photo with the most likes at the end of the month is a winner and will be awarded with a pretty awesome prize at our end-of-the-semester banquet in April.

Juror Talk with Seth Adams for the Peter MacKeith Memorial Photography Exhibition

Join us in welcoming juror, Seth Adams, for the Peter MacKeith Memorial Exhibition. Bring your favorite dish and meet us at 5:30pm before the talk outside of Schaible auditorium for food and laughs with Adams.

"I often take photos with my ski poles still strapped to my wrists. Sometimes my climbing photos come out blurry because I can't stop my hands from shaking at the top of a pitch. I choose cameras based on which ones I can use wiht numb fingers.

I love it out there. Even when it's miserable, it's beautiful.

Outdoor sports have always been my first passion. Photography has grown as a way to share my trips after I return to the real world. I hate having to say the photos don't do it justice - the immensity of Alaska's landscapes fascinate me. I want to tell the story of the joy I find in the vast wilderness; I want to show the harshness, the austerity, and the beauty of the Alaskan landscape"

"Night" Photo Contest Opens

Art Week 2.0 is here! ... in the form of "Art Month." We listened to your feedback and made some changes to our contest. Here's the skinny:

The contest will run for the entire month. There will be one theme for that month. Your job is to shoot something (or many things!) that fits in that theme. The themes are purposefully broad- we want to see your unique interpretation. Photos should be uploaded to our Facebook page. You can enter as many as you like using whatever process you like: digital, film, phones, alt process, manipulated... it's all allowed. Only enter photos taken during the month the contest is open, please. Our Facebook followers will vote for their favorites (as many as they wish) by simply "liking" the photos. The photo with the most likes at the end of the month is a winner and will be awarded with a pretty awesome prize at our end-of-the-semester banquet in April.

The purpose of this contest is to get you out and shooting. Its easy to let your camera gather dust during the cold and dark winter months, but hopefully some light spirited competition will help us all with that!

February's theme is "Night." (Hint: most of our meetings and speakers address night and low light photography through the month, so if you're stumped for ideas, want to try something new or simply learn how to shoot in these conditions, stop by our meetings!)

We will be setting up different stations so you can try your hand at macro flower photos, water droplets and possibly some various other things. We will also have toys and various miniatures for all of your photo shenanigan needs.
