I had the pleasure of being one of the judges at last weekend’s PAGB GB Cup comp.
I was truly inspired by a number of fabulous still life images and also some stunning portraits.
I have been doing studio portraits for a while now for comps and will continue to do that this year – I’ve got lots of ideas. Also, for a number of years (along with my studio work and painting) I have been producing still life images for my own personal use – cards, prints etc for various craft markets or gifts for friends and family (the attached are a couple I did last year – not for competition)
However, looking at some exquisite still life images this weekend I have decided to go through my many external hard drives to see what is hiding there. I can honestly say that those hard drives are full off “stuff” I’ve photographed over the years, so I think I will revisit this genre and maybe enter a comp or two to see how they go.
I was so filled with eager enthusiasm whilst judging last weekend I couldn’t wait to get home to start planning what I
was going to do – so thank you to those people who entered the comps and inspired me.
