This past August I had the honor of participating in a contest of sorts. I belong to a forum for professional photographers that put on a competition amongst it's members. It was modeled after the t.v. show Top Chef. Each week we would be given a series of challenges to complete relating to photography. The judges voted and people were eliminated. Now that the contest is over I would love to share with you some of the challenges and what I created to stay in the game. Since this is a private forum, I will not be able to show you anything but my own work but I thought you would enjoy it anyway.
Our first image that we entered was just to get in the game. There were over 50 professional photographers that entered their image to see if they could get in.
The requirement was simply submit an image that you have taken in the last year that is your best work. It couldn't be an image that we had already posted on this forum. I am one of those people that shares a lot on there so I had to go back a few months.
This image is one I created for the student of the month at First City Dance Studio in Bemidji. I really love the dramatic lighting and pose.
I really enjoy working with dancers and artistic types. It gives me a chance to stretch my creative muscles.
