Senior Club Competition Winners October 2021

Pretoria Photographic Society Alta Oosthuizen Fencing Motion

Alta Oosthuizen from Pretoria Photographic Society is our October winner!

Alta, congratulations on your winning image – Fencing Motion


Alta says:
I always wanted to take this image. The chairman of Tuks Fencing Club was very kind to offer 2 of his fencers to be the models. Me and two of my photography buddies played together to make this image work. The fencers were placed on a school hall stage with a modelling light to generate the motion effect and with a Speedlight set on rear curtain sync, the fencers were frozen in the picture. It was trial and error to get the exposure time right, but as soon as we had that covered, taking the pictures was a whole lot of fun!!

Our 1st runner-up is Martin Barber from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with “Dark Thunder”
