Senior Naamah McGee wins 2nd place at national photo contest
Senior Naamah McGee has claimed a coveted 2nd place at a national photo competition this fall. http://www.atpi.org/fallcontest/
The competition took place November 16th and had six prestigious judges, who spent ten hours judging more than 7,000 entries from 111 schools in Texas, California, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Saskatchewan, Canada.
“I really didn’t expect to win anything in this contest, so whenever I got the news that I placed second, I was ecstatic,” said McGee.
McGee has taken yearbook and photography for two years, qualifying her to enter her photograph in the Advanced category, as opposed to the beginner category for all 4A schools, both public and private in the Association of Texas Photography Instructors Fall Photo Contest 2019.
McGee won 2nd place for the Advanced 4A Student Life category for her photo entitled “Senior Bell”, which clearly shows the joy on Senior Dylan Karasek’s face as he runs down the hall precisely at 3:15. McGee stood right in the middle of the crowded hall, showing her determination to get the perfect shot. The lighting, shutter speed and foreground blur with the cell phones and background clarity aid the quality of this photo.
Congratulations Naamah McGee!
