Portraits That Win Awards

Having a perfectly exposed, beautifully lit, pin-sharp image of an interesting face may not be enough to be short-listed in a major photographic award. 

What is it that makes a judge sit up and look twice and select one image over another?  Is it the impact value, the colour, size or narrative element within the frame? 

Or is it something more extraneous and indefinable?
Dale Neill's portrait images have won awards at the Australian Professional Photography Awards for 12 consecutive years. He has also been a keen  observer of the judging processes at national, state and local levels.

 In this workshop Neill makes some analytical comments on what seems to makes an image a winner.

Shoot's 'Portraits That Win Awards' Workshop is on Sat 8 June 10am-12noon. ($49)
  • Portraits that send judges to sleep
  • The Emotional image
  • The Narrative print
  • Is there such a  thing as the 'perfect' portrait lens?
  • Black and White or Colour?
Tel Dana at SHOOT Workshops on 9228-8232 or email  enquiries@shootworkshops.com.au to make a booking. Limited paces available.
Be quick, just two places left as of 19 May!

Your best portrait could win you AU$5000 cash or a new Nikon D800 camera in the 2013 Fremantle International Portrait Prize
