My behind the scenes image of Rev. F.D. Reese and Kathryn Mayo from the “Selma Portrait project” was selected as one of the years best by National Geographic your shot community. I received this email yesterday from Matt Adams, associate photo editor at National Geographic.
“Hi Douglas, Congratulations for being selected as one of Your Shot’s best photos of 2018! This community boasts some of the best photography on the Internet (in our opinion) so thank you for being here and sharing with us! You can find the Best of Your Shot 2018 gallery in the link below. Keep up the great work and we’ll see you in 2019!”
I’m happy and humbled to be included in the selection.
