Timing was everything for photo prize winner Parrish

Spontaneous pictures are always fun and when you get one that’s worthy of taking to the Sheboygan County Fair, it’s even better yet!

That’s what happened to Tessa Parrish, 16, Waldo. She is the daughter of Jack and Katie.

It was a fourth of July event when she captured her sister, Molly, running through smoke bombs in their yard.

Parrish is a member of the Waldo Fire Flies 4-H Club. She had her I Pod and used the camera app without any special settings or techniques.

“All I did was point and shoot!” said Parrish. “She was running through the smoke and there were no special techniques used and I just thought the smoke was interesting!

“I was surprised it turned out as good as it is,” said Parrish.

“I had a few of them and just liked how she was playing around in the smoke,” said Parrish. “So I named it Poof and mounted the picture on the dark background because it gave the smoke an unusual brightness.

“The judge liked the lighting and how the smoke looked,” said Parrish. “It was a new take on the idea.

“I like doing more natural things, not posing pictures,” said Parrish. “I think its fun to capture the memories.

“I’m thankful to get the award. It’s cool that I’ve been doing photography for the fair for the past seven years and I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished,” said Parrish.
