Foggy GOYA Results :: The Winner Is…
What turned out to be something fun to do on a foggy afternoon became the second most commented on blog entry here. That’s an amazing surprise to all of us! I asked you to vote on our Foggy GOYA shootout and here are the results!
1st place – Photographer B w/294 votes :: That’s me! 2nd place – Photographer D w/99 votes :: Sherri our business manager 3rd place – Photographer C w/68 votes :: Robin our intern 4th place – Photographer A w/15 votes :: Caleb, my 10 y/o son
I also asked if you had a favorite image and the image above got the most votes. I originally was going to kill this diptych because part of me liked it and part of me hated it. When I feel that way about an image I typically go ahead and put it out into the world to see what happens. I like finding that kind of struggle with my photography. I typically like something or hate something and when I have an image that can’t be compartmentalized in my brain then I know I’m on to something. I created the image by taking one photo of the birds in focus and then one with the wall in focus. I put them side by side but I didn’t like it at all that way. I flipped one horizontally just to see what that would look like and that is when part of me liked it and part of me hated it. I wish I had done it in camera. I’d feel like a ninja if I had but it confirms in me that I do want to experiment with mirrors more.
Thanks again for voting!
Dear Caleb, Sherri, and Robin… I’m sorry for the spanking y’all just received! Something tells me that your game is going to be upped by significant amounts next time. Good. That’s the point!
