The proud City of Ferris is hosting their annual Brick Festival!

The City of Ferris is welcoming us because they want Our Pictures! They loved the pictures we submitted last year. The pictures from prior years were sub optimal iPhone thingies.

If you would like to have your photos considered for the Ferris Newspaper and the Ellis County monthly magazine please send Ed Auger your first and last name via e-mail ([masked]) by Close of Business, Tuesday, April 10 so Ed can secure Press Pass badges for you.

They are interested in pictures of all the activities!

Ed Auger meet you in front of the City Hall at 8:45 until 9:15 with agendas, badges and instructions on how to submit you images, sizing, editing etc. For you late risers, Ed will be at the City Hall at 12:00 noon with the same information. Please e-mail Ed ASAP if you will be taking pictures of the contests, musical groups, rides ,car show, parade, etc. Hope to see you and your family Saturday April 14th.

This is an opportunity to practice event photography. As seen in the schedule below they are planning a lot of events, including a car show! The parade, brick painting for kids, the car & motorcycle show, the dog show and the gun fights would be the events I am interested in.

We will need:

Camera with at least two charged batteries & empty flash cards

a speed light to fill in shadows. and extra charged batteries.

FF: 16-35mm & 24-70mm or[masked]mm

The Brickfest 2018 photo gallery is open for some of your photos. We will review them at our May meeting.

All jpeg images submitted pictures should be:
1. sRGB color format (grey scales mess up the machinery)
2. 2000 pixels on the long side
3. about 60% jpeg compression.

This creates a file small enough for ease of uploading & downloading and large enough for viewing pleasure and some manipulation.
