During 2012 i had some personal projects and photoshoots that i thought will be nice to try and submit them to photography competitions. I got discouraged many times by photo competitions, and losing them, but i guess that after a while it’s paying off.
I joined the 32nd Annual Photography competition of Photographer’s Forum Magazine and got into the finalists with 2 images. On in the B&W section and the other in Color section. I’m not a winner and not close to be, but it did promised me a place in a 9X12in’ hardcover book sponsored by SIGMA: “BEST OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2012”.
Both photos are of Jessica A. @ Mayhem Model Management and i shoot them in totally different times of the year, randomly.
