Winners: September 2013: Flash Photography


Thank you to author Lou Jones for acting as our guest judge for the September contest! The theme was “flash photography,” sponsored by Lou’s book, Speedlights & Speedlites: Creative Flash Photography at Lightspeed, Second Edition

First Place: “Splashing Strawberry”
by Roberto Roseano, Bergamo, Italy

What Lou had to say:
This is exactly what flash photography is for: to enhance the photographer’s ability to see and show things not only better but also what we cannot see with our naked eye.   Although this is probably a composite, marrying the stunning beauty shot with excellent flash usage and the very difficult stop motion/splash photography of the water and strawberry is flawless.

Second Place: “The Boatman”
by Sirsendu Gayen, Kolkata, West Bengal, India

What Lou had to say:
This unusual juxtaposition of flash with available light photography is taking it to the next level. Composition is very compelling even though symmetrical.

Third Place: “Dancer in Flight”
by Ian Bornarth, Alcadideche, Fremont, California, USA

What Lou had to say:
Using flash to freeze human movement is a traditional application. With the addition of the costume, extreme form and lack of background distraction, this image is strangely unique.

Thank you to everyone who entered!
