I joined The Guild Of Photographers in September and entered 3 pictures into their monthly comp.
Today I have found out that I have received 1 Silver and 2 Bronze Awards so I am very pleased with that especially as they are new images.
The October Image Of The Month closes soon so I had better get my skates on🙂
Thought I would enter the International Photography Awards earlier this year for the first time.
This photographic competition has nothing to do with FIAP or BPE’s and obviously has entrants (both professional & none professional) from all around the world.
Yesterday I was contacted to say that 4 of my images had received Honorary Mentions (three in the portrait section and 1 in the fine art nude section) – I have to say I am thrilled.
Here are the images that were honoured :-
I’ve been doing a bit more “painting” today using Corel Painter & Photoshop.
A few people have asked me when am I going to do some Corel Painter Workshops… the answer is early next year.
There will be sit down face to face workshops and online tutorials, so watch this space.
Sign up for more details regarding these workshops/on line tutorials by filling in the contact form below.
When I have given my talks at photo/camera clubs over the years I have often heard the following “I really like what you do……. but its not proper photography is it ?”. Producing images for competition that are creative seems to come with the “only does creative pictures because she/he can’t take a proper picture”label. This always makes me smile because every element of the picture started out as a photograph. Bringing up this subject is like opening a can of worms but hey….. photography should be fun and how you achieve your personal end results is truly up to you. So I will say it now I AM A CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHER AND I AM PROUD OF THAT FACT !
There are many of my images that fall into the creative pile….. but every singe one of them started out as a photograph – thought I would highlight a few of them
