TEXAS PHOTO FESTIVAL

On Sunday, Oct. 14, Smithville will be transformed into themed vignettes with including a life size western town, horses and cowboys, a drumline, historic buildings, tours and more. Plenty of models around. And heck, just grab an attendee or two and ask for that shot you want. Photographic opportunities will be varied and fun.

Classes, an Instagram Photo Walk, a "Fan Favorite" Model Contest, a Photo Contest, a runway fashion show "Fashion Fest 2012", theSoiled Doves of Austin and Sherwood Forest inhabitants, and on-site sponsors will provide opportunities for professional and amateur photographers to build their portfolios, learn additional skills, and have photographic fun.

Register for free on Sunday at the edge of the "photo zone". It will be easily marked for you to see. Everything inside is open for snappin'.

At 5:30 p.m., learn how to do "transparent" photos with this ghostly shoot.

The event continues with a happy hour until 7 p.m.

Enter the free photo contest sponsored by The Smithville Times for registered participants to cap the day with categories for all age groups. Nikon U.S.A has provided a Nikon D3200 camera kit for our top prize in the 14 and over age category of the Photo Contest - value approx. $1,000.00.

Again, it's all free and it's all fun.

For more information, call the Smithville Area Chamber of Commerce at [masked].

      Well, I was in front of the chamber of commerce from 2pm to 2:10pm at 1st and main. No one from our group was there so I jumped on the tractor ride.

    For those want to meetup then it looks like 1st and Main. The last two years I tried to set a meetup location and almost no one met up, so that is why I do not set a location for this meetup. When you are there do not be shy to ask the models to pose in a different way or location. Also it will go if it rains or shines, last year we got some great photos in the rain.
