THE THEME WAS MOVEMENT!!!
@davekavanagh was last weeks guest judge!!
I just wanted to say a big thanks to @jasonrussell for asking me to judge this round of the portrait contest. In picking this theme I had hoped to see some really original photography and have people thinking slightly outside the box. That's exactly what happened too, so a huge thanks to everyone for all the inspiring and incredibly creative submissions.
On one level it might look like a simple studio shot but I've tried (and failed) to capture shots like this. It takes a skilful balance of shutter speed and flash duration to capture the models face perfectly sharp, and still show the hair in motion. Its a beautiful shot thats shows both a skilful photographer and stunning model. Great work!
I can appreciate this one a few different levels. Firstly its an incredibly beautiful shot. Secondly I know just how much work would have gone into the composition. I must admit I pixel peep on shots like this and I love the fact that I couldn't see any signs of the post production work. It has a lovely surreal sense of motion too which is exactly what I hoped to see in from these submissions.
I love everything about that shot. Theres a great sense of capturing the model in action. The fog and forest in the background make a beautiful backdrop too and I can see some subtle but very tasteful color grading. It really is a beautiful shot that would be a great addition to anyones portfolio.
(in no particular order)
I have a guilty pleasure for anything 80's inspired and this instantly struck a chord with me. It conveys a great sense of motion and the post production gets a huge thumbs up from me.
I love the fact that this was described as an accident but its actually a beauful and interesting shot. It was great to see the intended shot below on this this post but I prefer the one with long shutter time. It just goes to show even on a scene where the model is stationary you can still create a sense of motion with creative camera settings.
This was probably my favorite round to so far!!!!!!! Fantastic work by everyone!!!!
