We had over 250 entries for this past February's Photo Pro Expo which was held in Cincinnati, Ohio. We had some amazing photos, which made it very difficult to narrow down to just three winners.
Our 1st place winner was a photo taken by Chuck H. from Indiana. It was almost like our Model Kaylee knew her image would be first when she was holding up her one finger. We really enjoyed how sharp this image was, as well it showed just a peek of our Calico Modern Vintage Background. Chuck has won an Ice Light for this winning image.
Our 2nd place winner was Moe with his image of our burlesque model Natalie. We enjoyed the creativity of just showing her strong eyes, and how they were naturally framed with the feathers and her hat. The shallow depth of field and rule of thirds also helped pull the image all together. Moe has won an Apollo Orb for this image.
Our 3rd place winner was Sandra B. from Kentucky with her photo of models Natalie and Derick. A very creative use of shallow Depth of Field with a great story. Sandra has won her choice of a Modern Vintage Background.
We want to thank everyone who participated in the shootout bay, and we cant wait to do it again in a city near you. Two upcoming shootouts will be in New York for Photo Northeast as well as in Orlando next month for Photoshop World.
