Second Place: Arthur Healey

I was excited to see there was a place to practice live photography at the show. The models and lighting set up were great. Not only was it good practice for the lessons I had just learned, but it also gave me a chance to try out the Westcott lights – something I had wanted to do. They are fantastic and I hope to use more of them in the future.

Third Place: Carrie Fleitz

An improved understanding of lighting has become an integral part of my recent growth, which is why I spent a great deal of time at the Westcott booth in Orlando. I really appreciated the opportunity to learn from the staff at the FJ Westcott Company booth who offered the best “how to” approach of any vendor at the Orlando show. There is no question that the quality of my shot was dramatically improved by the Westcott lighting, whatever the angle. Your shootout booths and the staff at Westcott was by far my favorite part of PSW 2011. I can’t wait for the next Photoshop event!
