Live Photo Competition
I’ve just spent a day shooting for a competition, not the usual kind of Photo competition, but a live shoot where I had to choose 2 images ‘straight out of camera’ to enter for judging.
I can hear many photographers sharp intake of breath at the thought of not being able to ‘process’ their images in their favourite software (or darkroom). And in the other corner, a bunch of photographers harping about how processing is ‘cheating’ anyway. We weren’t allowed even the simplest crops or conversions, so I shot Black and White in camera for the first time since I was loading film.
Anyway, most of the entrants, will have woken up this morning thinking they picked the wrong images – just like I did, but that’s the pressure of competition.
Here’s a selection of my shots (with my chosen selections first and a few I maybe should have chosen next):
If anyone’s interested I got 2nd place, the winner was a brilliant photographer so I’m happy with that.
