The four images were all photographs I had made as part of my ongoing reportage on the COVID 19 lockdown in 2020.
Three of the images were made using the Panasonic Lumix S1 and the fourth (Of opera singer Julieth Lozano) was made on a Panasonic Lumix S1R. The lenses were all Lumix S Pro lenses (16-35mm f4.0, 70-200 f4.0 and 70-200mm f2.8). The raw files were edited and processed in LightRoom Classic and finished in Exposure Software’s X6 plugin.
As the judges of the prestigious Travel Photographer of the Year competition, currently choose the winners for the main competition from the announced shortlist, the organisers have now opened the public vote segment for the People’s Choice award – the winner of which is chosen purely by visitors voting for their one favourite image. The winner will be announced in January together with all of the judged results of the awards.
There is some truly phenomenal photography in this segment and I’m thrilled that one of my images appears on the People’s Vote page. Please have a look and vote for your favourite shot. Should you choose image number 45, I will of course be most grateful!!
Voting is open until 21st January 2021.
The photograph was made when I was shooting a project for the L Mount Alliance, using a Sigma fp and a Leica 50mm APO-Summicron SL lens. The raw file was processed in Adobe Lightroom Classic and finished off in Exposure Software’s X6.
Many thanks and wishes for a much deserved happy new year for us all. Keep safe, keep well.
Very happy to share that for the second year running, the judges of the prestigious British Photography Awards have chosen two of my photographs for the award’s shortlist. This means that these two images are now eligible for the People’s Choice Awards and open to a public vote.
If you like either (or both!) my photographs, I would greatly appreciate your vote. You may vote vote for one image in each category. No registration is needed and it’s literally one click to cast your vote.
A joy to receive the Travel Photographer Of The Year (Inspirational Journeys 11) book today. I was fortunate enough to have my image selected by the judges for a ‘Special Mention’ and was included in the very popular outdoor exhibition, by the banks of the River Thames outside City Hall.
My image was shot in the Tate Modern, using my Lumix G9 and the amazing Leica DG 50-200mm f2.8-4.0. The image was processed in Adobe Lightroom and the monochrome treatment finished in Exposure X5.
The Club of Black and White Photography and NOIR the best of The Club of Black and White Photography curators have very kindly bestowed an award for best image of the month of August to one of my images.
The international group is comprised of 68,977 photographer members, so it’s nice to have an image chosen from such a talented and large group of people.
The image was shot as part of my reportage on the COVID 19 lockdown. It was made on my Panasonic Lumix G9 and an Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 lens.
