Juror: Graham Gordon Ramsay

Juror's Choice: "Glass Barriers" by Maria Elena Gioka
of Athens, Attica Greece

The juror for our portrait exhibit will be looking for portraits that "bring the viewer into a visual dialogue with the sitter". It's a challenge to have such rapport with your subject that they let down their guard and suddenly you know that you have an extraordinary Portrait - with a capital "P"!

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Have you got portrait shots that draw out your subjects in ways that reveals personality, character, emotions?   How does this happen?  This is what earned early photographers the title of "spirit catchers"!

 

 

 

Juror's Statement:

A portrait captures a moment in the life of the sitter.  If the portrait speaks to us clearly, we come to understand something new about the person represented, and through the process of seeing the portrait we learn something new about ourselves.  We see these pictures and have our own personal reactions to them--feelings, emotions, memories.  We create narratives in our minds about who these people are, what they feel, where they come from, and how they see their world.

I made the selections for this exhibition based on the premise that an intimate portrait is a revelation.  I chose a first round of images that were well executed from a technical and compositional standpoint.  From that subset of images, I looked for portraits that draw the viewer into the stories of the people being photographed.  I favored images that evoked an element of the personal and the truthful about their subjects.

Juror's Choice: "Elephants Silhouettes At Sundown" by
Jim Irwin of Kirkwood, MO, USA

As today’s wildlife faces unprecedented challenges, the wildlife photographer has the opportunity to act as chronicler as well as advocate.  With extreme patience and dedication photographers have the ability to present images of such striking natural beauty that they have been able to influence lawmaking and future human behavior. Many have dedicated their lives to this.  All in the power of an image…

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

From insects to big game, from songbirds to salamanders, we are looking for your photographs, taken anywhere in the world, of wildlife in their habitat.

Juror's Statement

"When evaluating a series of photographic images I am looking for a sense of a shared experience through the beauty and composition of the subject. Lighting is extremely important and can make or break an image. To hold the attention of the viewer the image needs to be technically correct, that is correctly exposed with the important details such as eyes being sharp. All these various criteria can come together to create an image with the quality of a masterpiece in oil."

Commercial and still life images are certainly included in this theme but is certainly not limited to those subjects. Make us see the beauty, taste the flavor, smell the aroma and feel the texture though your work.

 

Juror's Statement

 I created a mental checklist that the images needed to go through. There was the basic photographic elements to consider (sharpness, use of DOF, tonal range, contrast, exposure, framing and edges. Composition was moved to the design portion of the critique. That continued the framing theme to review balance and placement within the frame. Of course the image needed to fit the theme.

Wedding Story
Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Wedding photography can tell a story. It may be the bread and butter for many photographers but it can still offer creative opportunities. We want images that go beyond the standard posed shots and artistically capture those special moments that only an attentive photographer sees and can capture. Those shots that tell the unique story of that particular wedding.  Show us your best wedding shots that tell a wedding story.

 

Cliff Mautner’s career in professional photography spans 28 years. After 15 years and 6000 assignments as a photojournalist with the Philadelphia Inquirer, and working for an eclectic array of commercial clientele ranging from Comcast to Subaru, Cliff launched his wedding photography career. After 750 weddings, he hasn’t looked back.

Cliff was named one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world by American PHOTO magazine. He won the 2009 WPPI Grand Award for photojournalism, and he's the global wedding photography spokesperson for Nikon and Nikkor. He’s been recognized by WPPI as “one of the top photographers and educators in the world” and has shared his concepts and ideas across the country speaking for Nikon, Photoplus, WPPI, PPA, Digital Wedding Forum, and other photographic organizations. He’s perhaps best known for his ability create quality images in some of the most difficult lighting conditions encountered. Rangefinder magazine describes him as having “a freshness and imagination that is new and important” and is the founder of the highly successful "Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp.
