Point And Shoot Takes Best In Show

By Stewart Lilker

The Long Island Arts Council At Freeport is holding its Annual Juried Photography Show this month in the main lobby of the Freeport Memorial Library. The Art Councilís director, Marnie Katzman, told FNYN that this is one of the most popular photography shows on Long Island.

This yearís best in show went to Lawrence Ruderman for his photo Tractors and Barn. Ruderman explained that he took the photo in the early 90ís while on a trip to photograph a balloon festival in Vermont. He said that the photo was scanned into a computer and was pretty much the same as it was taken, except for the enhancement of the red. When Ruderman was asked about his Best In Show, he said, "I entered three photos in the show. I hoped I would get something."

Ruderman said the photo was taken with a point and shoot Olympus XA1. If you have any questions about the photo, Mr. Ruderman can be reached at larsapli@aol.com.
