Byron Neal’s photography bought by gallery

Vice President Byron Neal (12) recently had a piece of his art bought by an employee at Sheldon Art Hall. One of the three photographs he submitted online got into the Art Hall and eventually someone showed an interest in buying one.

“It started with my photography class last semester. I was a cadet for Mrs. Larson and we went on a field trip to the Art Hall,” Neal said. “I ended up taking a few photographs there and talked to a professional photographer.”

The photographer he spoke to gave him some tips on editing his photographs.

“He talked about how to create transparent photos,” Neal commented.

Neal used Photoshop to perfect his photos and eventually submitted them. When he found out one of his photos got into the gallery he was ecstatic. And he was even more ecstatic once he found out someone wanted to purchase one.

“I talked to Mrs. Larson who helped me create a price for the photograph. I sold it for $30,” Neal said.

His photography can still be viewed in the gallery today and until the end of March at the Sheldon Art Hall.
