International Photography Awards – Honorable Mention

Sometimes you get Deja Vu.  Back in 2008, I posted on my blog that I had very surprisingly been awarded an Honorable Mention in the IPA Awards months earlier and just missed it.  Didn’t know….and was very pleased to find out.  It is huge competition with tens of thousands of entries from all over the world.  Sponsored by AtEdge and many others, there are some truly amazing photos entered.

Well. in the immortal words of Britney Spears, “Oops, I did it again.”  I was sitting in the studio with a couple of my assistants when I got an email about whether I was submitting for the 2011 awards.  I started thinking about 2010!!!!!  For the third year in a row, The International Photography Awards (IPA) have bestowed on me an Honorable Mention.  This time it is for my light painting series from Kee Magazine.

The story was shot in my studio with Hassleblad H3D 39 Megapixel tethered to my iMac.  I believe I used a standard 8omm lens.  ISO 100 with long exposures.  The technique was done on camera using the old school technique of light painting.  Minimal Photoshop.

The model is Bettine from Muse
