That’s done it.
We have been deliberating for a couple of days. We recently started the Reader’s Photo of the Month. We choose a photo from reader’s submissions based on the photo but also the supporting commentary.
We don’t care what specific camera, lens or how many mega-zooples your processor zapped.
We do care about your inspiration, creative process and perhaps some minor technical info.
Send us a photo for next month’s Reader’s Photo of the Month.
“Inspired by Karsh’s John F. Kennedy portrait.
I always liked this study (of Kennedy by Karsh), the fact reinforced when I held this original 11×14 photo in my hand. To see an original Karsh can’t be described. For a portrait photographer it is truly holding the Holy Grail. My self-portrait was inspired in terms of lighting and the profile. I opted not to be praying but I think I got the lighting close.
I add just a hint of brown-sepia to emulate Agfa Portriga warm tone FB photo paper.”
His was chosen as this month’s Photo of the month.
We liked the lighting and technical elements, inspiration and homage to a classic portrait, photographer and medium. I have a spot for film photography and although Darrell shot this digitally he tips his hat to film.
Thanks Darrell and to all the people that sent in a photo.
Please try again in May.
