I didn't make the finalists round. How sad. Waaah. Oh well life goes on... and I had a lot of fun making the shots I made... I'll have to look for another photo competition now... they really motivate me to try different stuff!
So a little while ago I entered the Canon Photo5 competition. The entry period for the 2009 contestants has just closed and now I can show you my entries. Here's the site itself if you want more detail about what you gotta do etc... Canon Photo5
There are 5 categories/briefs that can be entered into, presuming that you registered in time to recieve their secret folding box full of props: Bokeh, Portrait, Close Up, Splat and Low Light - Practically Black [open brief].
My Bokeh entry:
My Low Light entry:
Now it's up to the judges to shortlist their favourite 10 entries in each brief for the public to vote on. They'll do this by November 9th. Then it's up to the public to pick their favourites and vote for the winners by November 22nd. The winners each recieve a Canon 5DMKII and lens kit and a 3-day photo safari trip with Australian photographer Chris Bray!
Wish me luck! And vote! I'll post details on how to do that, closer to the time.
