For this photo challenge, we would like to see your most emotional image. Erik Valind offers great advice for capturing an emotional photograph in the inspirational video below. Submissions can be any photograph incorporating any feeling: joy, grief, anger, love, etc. Be sure to include the short story behind your shot!
This week’s Basics photo challenge winner will be receiving a 28” Medium Apollo a DigiCard Card Reader, and a copy of the book, “Photographic Lighting: Essential Skills”, by John Child and Mark Galer courtesy of Pro Studio Supply.
The winning photographer will also win one of the 200 Lightapalooza Golden Tickets. This ticket will enter him or her into the year-end drawing for a $15,000 Westcott shopping spree, a meet-and-shoot with a Westcott Top Pro, and more!
In this week’s Basics inspirational video, Westcott Top Pro Erik Valind offers some tips on adding emotion and character to your portraits. By giving your models backstories, or even offering the thought of a personal experience, you can sense more emotion in your shots.
