Senior Club Competition Winners June 2022

Chris Joubert from Randburg Photo Club is our June winner!

Chris, congratulations on your winning image – Table Top Body Scape

Chris says:-  “I love photographing low key, back-lit and moody images, and was fortunate enough to photograph this beautiful model in my studio.
I started off by using split lighting but found the top of her body too dark and by moving the lights up and angling them downwards at 45 degrees, achieved the desired result I was looking for. This gave me good exposure overall as well as capturing the muscle form on her beautiful body.
I then added back lighting to the backdrop to achieve separation between subject and backdrop. Both the model and I were very happy with the end result.”

Our 1st runner-up is Laetitia Kenny from Edenvale Photographic Club with “Nirvana”

Our 2nd runner-up is Shirley Gillitt from Westville Camera Club with “Vulture Frenzy”

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.

Click here to download instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault

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.
