Three Times and Counting

Most of you have already heard but for those who haven't.....I'm a merit award winner for the third consecutive year in COLOR magazine's 2011 Portfolio Contest.  It's an amazing honor as the competition is stiff; only 67 photographers awarded out of 480 artists with over 8,000 images competing for space in the special issue.  The COLOR Magazine recently became folded into the highly respected B&W (Black & White) Magazine.  


The images I submitted were a photo essay of 12 images done with a soft focus approach.  Due to the subject matter and artistic intention I felt the ambience was better suited to this pictorialist style than the traditional in focus depth of field.  Striving to bring a new perspective to achieve an emotional expression over observed reality is challenging but at the same time most rewarding.  Below are two of the images within the my award-winning photo essay.
