Yes, it opened just a bit ago. CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Convention! Are you there?
Just surfing around this morning while my laundry is churning and I was delighted to see that "overexposed" photography is now considered "OUT!" In my day, this kind of photography was not a consideration for a comment of "well done." In my day, we also used chemicals to process our film, too.
I was just really excited to see that professional photographers all around the world do not care for this type of photography and sees it as always, a "FAD." One blog read, "the overexposed photo fad stemmed from Calvin Klein's Advertisement back in Spring of 2009." WHEW! What a relief. I thought this was going to be the "new" formula for consideration of, "perfect picture."

Well, "fads" are for inspiring and not longevity. They are not for what will remain but they are for what will become. I am so happy about this. I love candid-real photos. Not photo shopped, cropped, or bamboozled in some way to make a shot look different than it truly is. I think this is why many people love "heritage photos." But truly, did we really think that "overexposed photos" were really good?
