Every month we select one of YOUR photos for our Reader’s Photo of the Month. We look for a photo that moves us in some way and some kind of inspiration or indication of how the photo turns your crank! We’re less interested in what camera you used and more interested in your process.
This month was, as usual, a tough choice.
But in the end Andrea Johnstone came out on top with her photo, below, from a recent session:
Photo of the Month contest
Andrea says, simply, “I grabbed this photo of Christine’s daughter.
My inspiration was the way she was getting tuckered out and looked like she wanted some cuddling, which I thought was so spontaneous. It was just about the end of the session and the kids were getting tired. It was a perfect chance to grab an instant non-posed snap.“
Sometimes the best photos are the least planned – especially with children.
For Andrea’s efforts she wins a photo safari at HarryNowell.com this summer or fall. We have two coming up in July – bike racing or street performers – and are planning one for the fall – to be announced soon. Congratulations Andrea!
“Prizes? You never said anything about prizes!!“
Yes, we are now have prizes for the contest! Next month Canadian Geographic has kindly offered a subscription to their beautiful magazine. Interested in the prize, fame and glory?
