Last weekend we won the 2009 Shootout Competition held at the annual Atlantic convention of the Professional Photographers of Canada.
Every year the rules change and participants are not informed of the details until the day of the session. This year, photographers were given an optional studio setup, a model, and ten minutes to create ten distinct and different photographs (of which one was chosen as best image). Competitors ranged from photography students to 30 year veterans.
I’m used to thinking on my feet, so to do something different, I used the hotel architecture and a blue recycling bag over my studio light to create a moody deep blue image.
The PPOC Atlantic was formed in 1933. The convention took place at the Delta Beausejour hotel in Moncton, New Brunswick.
