2019 Washington State High School Photography Competition

On Saturday, May 4th, we once again threw open the gym doors and let in a horde of photos, volunteers, judges and spectators for the annual Washington State High School Photography Competition. This year was a little smaller, only 66 schools and 3500-ish photos, but everybody brought their best work and it was a spectacle to see. The student volunteers from Inglemoor and other schools impressed everyone with their good nature and hard work.

Shown below, a number of Inglemoor students' photos earned recognition. I will add the Finalist and Select winners when time allows.

Traditional Black & White 1st Place, Maya Nair

Traditional Black & White 1st Place, Maya Nair. This was the only entry we put in this category - not bad.

Abstract 1st Place, Olivia Oomen

Abstract 1st Place, Olivia Oomen. As one of the judges succinctly put it afterwards, "That was art."

1st Place Still Life, Nicole Villamil

1st Place Still Life, Nicole Villamil. This is a 4"x5" traditional tintype photo made using only the finest 19th century technology and chemistry.

2nd Place Still Life, Felicity Harris

2nd Place Still Life, Felicity Harris. This is a roughly 7" x 10" ambrotype - like a tintype, but on glass instead of black enameled metal. The dark areas of the image are where you can see through the glass to the black mat board behind it. Is it super-cool? Yes, it is.

4th Place Still Life, Joshua Netelenbos

4th Place Still Life, Joshua Netelenbos.

4th Place Portrait, Julie Ganbold

4th Place Portrait, Julie Ganbold. This is a traditional cyanotype print on watercolor paper from a digital negative. If you are not familiar with John Herschel and Anna Atkins, you should look them up!

4th Place Landscape, Clare Larson

4th Place Landscape, Clare Larson. Clare also had two other similar beautiful Seattle landscapes that received no official recognition, but one of the viewers, a photographer who has judged the show in the past, expressed how much he really enjoyed them and hoped they would move on in the contest. He was impressed.

4th Place People, Julie Ganbold

1st Place Manipulation, Olivia Oomen

1st Place Manipulation, Olivia Oomen. This work is comprised of positive and negative prints of the same image, aligned one above the other and then cut through to reveal different layers.
