For last week’s Lightapalooza 2013 Illusions contest, we posted a video from Westcott Top Pro Matt Hernandez. This inspirational video illustrated the easy-to-use PhotoKey green screen software that Matt utilized in creating a modern senior portrait. PhotoKey is a great tool for all types of photographers and has many essentials tools for shooting events and senior images. Inspired by this video, we asked participating contestants to submit their best photograph of an event. We received beautiful photo submissions of weddings, engagements, births, and concerts. It was this darling image of a boy’s fourth birthday party that we decided was the best example of a captured event. We would like to congratulate James Merritt from Georgetown, Ontario as this weeks Lightapalooza 59th winning contestant.
As winner, James will be receiving a Westcott 7′ White/Black Diffusion Parabolic Umbrella. This umbrella offers a white interior that softens bounced light and a solid black backing that eliminates any potential for back spill light. James will also be receiving a TriPad tripod laptop desk, courtesy of this week’s sponsor Pro Studio Supply and a Lightapalooza 2013 Golden Ticket, which will enter him into the year-end drawing for the coveted grand prize.
With so many stunning submissions, we had a very difficult time choosing a single winner. So, we would also like to congratulate Jules Norcross of Norfolk, Virginia as our second place contestant of the 59th Lightapalooza contest. She also submitted a great photo example of a beautiful event. As runner-up, Jules will also be receiving a Lightapalooza 2013 Golden Ticket.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in this Lightapalooza contest and wish everyone luck in the final round of contests. This will be your final chance at scoring a coveted Golden Ticket! Enter now through Friday, December 13th.
