This fortnight, the students in each city all studied different themes. Adelaide tired abstract photography, Sydney had a Q&A session, Brisbane re-visited motion blur, Melbourne experimented with zoom and Perth played with black and white versus colour. This meant the competition was open to all types of entries.
Judging is now only done for first and second place winners only. Any feedback on images can be sought in our Facebook groups during Critique Me Tuesday, both before and after the competitions, just be sure to tag the instructor in each group, who is identified each Tuesday night.
To see all of the photography competition entries, head to the album on the Photoh Facebook page here.
The finalists this fortnight are:
David Munro, Adelaide
Lisa Lawrie, Brisbane
Michael Briguglio, Canberra
Matt Skubis, Melbourne
Braiden McMahon, Perth
Jane Gillett, Perth
Tracye Hughes, Sydney
The winner this fortnight is...Jane Gillett in Perth. Congratulations, you have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher! This is an incredibly emotive image that uses colour and composition to completely engage the viewer and draw the attention to the subject and consider what his story is. It's very powerful!
And in second place we have...Tracye Hughes from Sydney, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher. The striking window light used in this photo highlights the details of the young ballerina's physique that communicates years of dedication to dance, while still a child. There is a strong sense of looking at someone who is daydreaming and it seems like a real "moment" has been captured here. Well done.
The challenge for next fortnight is panoramic landscape photography where students will learn about shooting multiple frames and stitching them together for ultra wide landscape images. Entries opened on Saturday the 21st October and will close on Thursday the 2nd November at midnight AEST.
To enter, simply post your photo on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city. First prize is a $100 JB Hifi voucher and second prize is a $50 JB Hifi voucher.
