Running very behind on posting this considering it’s now the 14th of October! But, I only entered one image into the monthly SWPP image competition, so only have on image to blog about. 😀 There are only 2 months of competition left this year (where has this year gone) and then we will be off to the convention in January for the annual awards and the 20×16 print competition…for which I still need to order prints and decide on what to enter this year! 😀
Anyways, here is the image for September.
This is a monochrome version of one of my favourite images from the advertising / fashion photography session for cywbyurbanz. The image is a fashion image, shot in Cambridge, but I didn’t enter it into the fashion category. I entered this into the monochrome category as I just really never enter this category and wanted to get something in there for this year. I may enter the colour version into a different category next month, but not sure. As I always like to do, I like to dissect the image if it doesn’t get Gold to see where I could have improved it. With this one, it’s a rather easy one. I think the crop could be a little bit better. My model is a little too far right and I cropped right through his shoulder, which I don’t like. I also could have used a better positioned accent light on the right. It’s there, but it was acting more as a fill light instead of an accent light, and I think if I have used it as an accent it would be a bit better. Saying that though is easier said than done with this shot considering he is sitting on a ledge 5 stories up…so there really wasn’t anywhere for me to put the light to use as an accent. 😀
So, there you have my one Highly Commended for the month of September, hopefully October I will get more images entered and get more awards! 😀
