My Winning Submission Chosen By Brooke Shaden

Untitled-1

My article was chosen as second place winner in the Expose Yourself Competition at In My Bag .net! The judge was the great Brooke Shaden from Brooke Shaden Photography! She has always been a great source of inspiration for me…even from the very beginning. In reading her posts and following her work, I found the courage to step outside the box and create art from my heart. Thanks Brooke!

“Julie’s blog post is such a good read because of how simple she keeps it – solid advice, incredible imagery to back it up, and a unique take on inspiration.

I loved how she pointed us to a source of inspiration (the children’s section of a bookstore) that is overlooked, and also showed us practical ways of using that inspiration for different styles of photography.” – Brooke Shaden

Mr. Ketchup & Me (Signature Dream Pet Series)
© Julie McGann Fine Art Portraits

The Child’s Imaginary Idea: This toddler absolutely LOVES ketchup. You name it, she eats ketchup on it. If a bottle of ketchup was a real person, it would most definitely be her best friend! Her dream pet is a bottle of Ketchup! So I created a picture of her with her new best friend, Mr. Ketchup, doing what she loves best…playing helicopter! Anything is possible in my whimsical world!
