We don’t like complaining about weak categories but this was not a highlight of the quarter. Students, practice your posing and be brave… take control of the situation! Some images would have benefitted from a reflector. Almost none used any sort of lighting. Very few spoke to the subject. First place, Color, showed us some real effort and second place, Rebuilding, was the best environmental portrait of the batch and was well-toned. Everything else was, quite frankly, forgettable.
