With Camera in Hand: A Photographic Exhibition

It’s become fashionable and rather easy to leave the big, heavy, and bulky 35mm DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera at home and decide to only use one’s iPhone to take pictures these days.

As a one-time film camera photographer in the glory days of 35mm slides & negatives, McDonald acknowledges the “psychological challenge” associated with the availability of iPhone photography.

With Camera in Hand: A Photographic Exhibition is one way to showcase the multiple advantages of still carrying a big, heavy, and bulky 35mm DSLR camera. 

Facts from behind the shutter: McDonald's most recent photographic exhibition was in April 2017: The Photographs of Club Lacrosse Competition in the Buehler Gallery at the UC Davis Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center. His catalog of past photographic exhibitions include those at Gallery 1075 in West Sacramento, Blue Line Arts in Roseville, Second Friday Art About in Davis, Gallery 625 in Woodland, Gallery 1855 in Davis, First Friday Art Walk in Woodland, Art Farm Harvest in Woodland, and
Architectura Obscura at the American Institute of Architects Central Valley Chapter in Sacramento.

His photographic works have received numerous ribbon awards in the greater Sacramento area including the Dixon May Fair and Yolo County Fair as well as the Fine Arts Exhibition, California State Fair.
