Chris Ochadlick Submits Photo to “Life Images”

Jul 22, 2008

Chris Ochadlick, of Point Pleasant, PA, administrative assistant for the Mathematics and Liberal Arts Departments at Delaware Valley College, recently had a photograph published in the Summer 2008 issue of "Life Images." The issue is on sale now at Border's books.

The photo, titled "Front Row Seats," shows a set of three chairs in the foreground of Fairmount Lodge in Alberta, Canada. Ochadlick took the picture in August 2007 while on vacation with friends. This is her first published magazine piece, though she has previously published pieces with local newspapers.

For more than 30 years, Ochadlick has enjoyed self-taught film and digital photography and currently has six photographs on permanent display in the Shapiro Wing of the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial Library on Delaware Valley College's Doylestown campus.

A strong believer in composition, she frequently tells aspiring photographers "to take photographs as if they do not have an editing program."

"At this point, I'd say it's progressed to the point it's much more than a hobby," said Ochadlick of her long history with the medium. She advises beginning photographers to focus primarily on their area of interest. "It really comes across to the viewer and tells you much more about the person behind the camera."

Visitors are invited to view Ochadlick's works on permanent display at the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial Library. Ochadlick's works can also be seen until July 25 at the gallery at Mixed Media in Doylestown in their "40 Art 2008," exhibition. In addition, two of Ochadlick's works will be shown in the upcoming Tinicum Arts Festival at Tinicum Park, River Road, Erwinna on July 12 and 13.
