National – December 2020 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

First: BEST DANG PHOTO IN THE CONTEST. put this in your portfolio. We Stand. Usually not a huge fan of photos of people crying- often it feels like photographers are taking advantage of the moment- but this was captured so delicately and you can tell with such care. BRAVO DAMNIT. Second: Nice shadow play- now try next time not to overlight the highlights on his face. Third- hilarious. just amazing
