FEP Award 2015

A little unexpected, but truly amazing, I received a message I was a finalist in the FEP 2015 competition, portrait category!! A little later, I discovered one of my entries made it to an “Excellence Award”. This means a score of 90-100, and equals “gold”.
I entered with 3 photos, and “human wrecking ball” made it to the top!
This is an annual European competition «Photographer of the Year Awards» by FEP (Federation of European Photographer). The awards represents over 50000 professional photograpers in Europe. This year, the ceremony took place late Sunday (March 1sst) in Teatro Verdi i Trieste, Italia. I could not be there, but representatives from Norway received the award in my place.
More on this in Adressa.

Attached to this post, are the awards and the winning photograph.
Here is the FEP page, with my other entries as well!

New gear – testing

Lately I visited New York, and came across Adorama in which I discovered Flashpoint 14″ Fluorescent Dimmable Ring Light .
This low-cost light source was something I found worth trying out, and found space in my hand luggage. Recently, I have put this to use, both outside and in the studio, and here are some examples.

wet dancer

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting another dancer. Ann recently graduated a professional dancer, and this was kind of a promotion shoot for her, providing something a little different.
Again, I visited a nearby (as in close to my studio) location and we made our way through assorted vegatation to find decent spots. Also, we found a small creek, and discovered there was mud underneath. Knee-high in water, I found myself sinking and had to work fast.
Anyway, here are some of the photos made yesterday, and there is more to come.
