For the 54th Lightapalooza 2013 contest, we were inspired by Westcott Top Pro Elite photographer Rick Sammon‘s use of the Apollo speedlight to add dramatic lighting effects in studio portraits. We asked participating contestants to submit their favorite examples of dramatic lighting. We wanted to see some creative lighting and your submissions definitely delivered! We are excited to announce John Myers as the latest Lightapalooza winning contestant for his self-portrait below!
John’s portrait was a fantastic example of dramatic portrait lighting. As winner, John will be receiving a 28″ Recessed Apollo and Magic Skin Photoshops actions set from MCP Actions. He will also be receiving one of 200 Lightapalooza 2013 Golden Tickets, which will enter her into the year end drawing to win a $15,000 Westcott shopping spree.
