It’s geek time again, so for those of you who just want to look at the pictures stop reading now.
I need just over 30 acceptances with at least 7 new images to apply for my next level of FIAP distinction. Thinking I might get around 3 acceptances per exhibition I entered 10 exhibitions.
However I now have the results back from the first 3 exhibitions and I have 26 acceptances with 2 awards including 11 new images, so it appears that I got my sums slightly wrong, in a very nice way.
Here are all the new acceptances, in no particular order, some of which you will recognise from recent blog posts.
The first is Fredau.
|Pool of Light|
Two of Raphaella.
Now the next seven all feature Holly including the two award winners, while the fourth one also included Madame Bink.
I usually only get to enter the colour and monochrome sections, as I don’t shoot nature or photo travel which are other sections that are common. However in one exhibition there was a section called Forest/Woodland, so I entered 4 nudes in a woodland environment and all 4 got accepted including these next two. So I am very pleased that the judges were open-minded in their interpretation of the subject matter :)
|Arched – awarded Silver Medal|
|Reflection In Red – awarded Ribbon|
A big thank you to all the models, who have created so many great images with me, allowing me to gain all these acceptances and awards.
