For the 51st Lightapalooza 2013 photo contest, we pulled inspiration from Erik Valind‘s video tutorial on lighting tall subjects. We asked contestants to submit their best “tall” photographs for a chance at winning a $50 gift card courtesy of Midwest Photo Exchange. With such a broad subject, we left it up to the contestants’ creative minds to decide what “tall” subject they would photograph. We had submissions of models, skyscrapers, landmarks, trees, and more. Contestant Jimmy Arcade’s submission of this photograph of the Nationwide Building in Columbus, Ohio was the perfect vision of tall. And that’s why we’re excited to announce Jimmy as the 51st winning contestant of Lightapalooza 2013!
This striking shot of the Nationwide Building won Jimmy a $50 Midwest Photo Exchange gift card and a Lightapalooza 2013 Golden Ticket, which could win him over $15,000 in the year-end raffle. A big thanks to Jimmy for his submission and to all of the other contestants who participated in this round of the Lightpalooza 2013 contests. Good luck in the next round of contests, which include dream photo shoot locations, female outdoor portraits, and dramatic lighting. Check out Lightapalooza 2013 for your chance at more prizes. See you there!
