New England Light Painters
All members of New England Light Painters (NELP) and other local photographers are invited to
submit their work for this special group exhibit at the Natick Community Senior Center.
The theme is “Open,” meaning you are welcome to submit the images of your choice.
Both conventional photographs and manipulated creative photographs are welcome. We would
like to feature multiple works per artist, so consider submitting works of a similar sub-theme or
grouping. Also, keep in mind this is a public venue so please use discretion when selecting
your subject matter for submission.
Your submission for judging will be by email. Images must be in JPG format, no larger than
1200 pixels wide/high. File size must be under 500KB (use sufficient compression). Your
image file name should be in the format:
The #W and #H are the width and height of the framed photograph (including the frame), in
inches; price in whole dollars (no cents) or NFS if print is not for sale. For example,
JohnPublic-MyPiano-20W-16H-175.jpg would be a valid file name.
Submit your images by email to Virge Lorents at virge.lorents [at] gmail.com .
All accepted photographs submitted for hanging must be framed and wired (no sawtooth).
Please make sure your framed artwork is labeled with your name, preferred contact information (email and/or phone number), artwork title and price, and make sure the exhibit organizer has all of this information. We will prepare labels for each piece with this information, and an exhibit price list.

The optional theme for the December 12 image review night was “vertorama”; a panorama in vertical direction or a tightly cropped vertical image. This is a much less common image size format, but as you see here it works really well for some images. As always, it was great to the diversity of work from the members.
