Photo Critic Shot of the Month: September 2015

2017-07-14T14:44:26+00:00 By |Action and Adventure Photography, Hotshots, Photography Competitions|

The Photo Critic Shot of the Month competition for September 2015 goes to Caleb Dredge with “The Heat of the Competition” a slow shutter, impressionist image depicting the action and energy of swimmers fighting it out in the pool. His image reminded us of Ernst Haas’ work and especially liked the three primary colours of red, blue and yellow that keeps the eye jumping between the different markers. Well done Caleb, you walk away with a R600 discount on any DPC photography course.

We got to Photo Critic's first Shot of the Year Competition. The winning shot went to Pietman Muller with his image "Klikbek". This was really an outstanding shot; a once in a lifetime moment captured by him. Elsje Wiid, one of the five judges, wrote, "Incomparable moment! There is a great amount of different textures with different focuses in the picture and this creates and interesting effect on the eye with a lot of focused detail, especially on the squirrel. The picture silently whispers an atmosphere of ‘awe.’ Perfect timing of capturing both animals in the right place - the space between the two contributes to the composition. The bug is amazingly frozen in the most perfect spot in the picture plane, with a fast shutter speed – the effect on the wings adds a bit of blur to the picture. Words can’t describe it. People have to view it to believe it" ~ Elsje Wiid.
