About

We welcome Carla Steckley as our judge for the annual ArtSpace Herndon Fine Art Photography competition and exhibit.  She has been a serious photographer since the late 80’s. She remembers the traditional wet darkroom in her home, where she produced Illfochrome and black and white images. Her specialty was Infrared Photography, leading to numerous lectures on the subject and writing a book about the process. She now happily embraces the benefits of the digital world.
