This was a hard category for us. There were a lot of portraits that were done in studio, but also a lot of environmental portraits. Our first place photo was a nice photo from a Pride Parade. We liked the crop on it. Second place was a great studio portrait that showed the skill the photographer has with lighting. Third place was a nice capture of someone at an event.
