A Blue Ribbon for me…do you believe it?! | Central Florida Award Winning Photographer

So, we had our monthly meeting at PPSCF last night, and I entered the print competition. I LOVE LOVE LOVE competitions because I always learn a ton about what I can do better next time. I am so ecstatic to announce that I merited 3 images, and one of them won FIRST PLACE! I am honored {and a little shocked!} to receive this award and I couldn’t be more grateful!

Here I am with my ribbon–so super excited!! {and a tad dorky, I know}

Meet Kinsley. She merited with an 81 or 82 (can’t remember in all of the excitement!). I appropriately titled this image “Angel Face”:

The next image was a class portrait for St. James Episcopal School’s 1st Grade Silent Auction. I titled it “A New Day Dawns”. It scored an 84, which is a personal best for me. Some of the judges wanted it higher–one of them mentioning 86-87 (Wow!)

And finally, meet Baby Ella. This image scored an 84 and won First Place in the Fine Art Category. This one was debated to be higher too. I am so thrilled! I titled it “This is Love”, but I think for the next competition, I will change the name. Any suggestions?

 

All in all, what a great day it was! I learned lots of tips for what I can improve on, and I am always open to advice from the experts! 🙂
