Congratulations to Shaun Frances from On the Rocks Camera Club
Shaun is our February winner with “I see you”
“I have for a long time wanted to capture an image of a cat peering through a hole of sorts, so I decided to construct a box with a wooden front. After attaching the wood to a cardboard box, I placed it in an empty room and then set up my camera with (with remote) and one speedlight (aimed at the roof to give a soft bounce light). I then place the cat in the room and waited. Knowing that cats are suckers for cardboard boxes, it did not take long for her to jump in and peer at me through the hole in the wood. After taking a bunch of shots, I selected the best one and did some editing to get the look I was going for. I enhanced the vibrance to the cat’s eye to make it pop and a few adjustments to the e colour of the wood.
The image was shot with a Canon M50 with 18-150 kit lens, Canon 580ex speedlight. Shutters peed of 1/200 at iso 200 and F5.6″
Our 1st runner-up is Tania Cholwich from Krugersdorp Camera Club – with “Gathering Before The Migration”
Our 2nd runner-up is Ben Botha from Alberton Camera Club with “Brommer”

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?
This is a PSSA monthly competition where clubs enter their monthly Senior winner onto Photovault. Appointed judges select the winning image. The monthly winner gets displayed on the home page of our Web site for the duration of the month.
For the Senior Club Competition Winner of the Month, a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the Senior club winner via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com.
Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded here
Frequently we do require high resolutions of these images as PSSA use them for Print Exhibitions to promote PSSA as well as showcasing the work being done around the country.
At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Senior Club Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
