After much deliberation (mainly with myself), I decided to try and send some of my pictures to the
PhotoShoot Awards (Nude 2014). To be honest, considering the photographers that participated last
year, I didn't think I had a chance. Some of the participating photographers have profiles on DeviantArt
and I follow and admire their work.
A couple of days ago, I received an e-mail from the organizers saying that one of my pictures is a finalist,
and three others were given a merit in the Academic Nude category. I am ecstatic and humbled.
The following pictures received a merit:
To be honest, I can't really believe it. When I read such entries from others, I always wondered
what are they doing correctly that I'm doing wrong. The answer, I think, is nothing. I try to keep
on doing what I did in the past and get better at it.
So, thank you all for the support. I hope to continue taking photographs that you and I like.
