2nd Place Award for Ready

Posted by on Feb 6, 2016 |

Maureen Kirk-Detberner’s digital fine art image “Ready” received a Special Merit Award in the Light, Space and Time’s Figurative Art Competition for June 2015!  This image was taken at a family portrait session.  I had the family take a break while I set up a background.  I snapped this photo to check lighting as they were getting ready for a new portrait.  Digital Fine Art photography award winner

I would usually delete a photo like this as it wasn’t intended to be printed.  There was something about the feel,  the interaction between the sisters that I liked so I didn’t delete it.   Later, I decided to edit the image and add some layers of texture and color to bring more drama to the image.

When I was finished I decided to enter it in the Light, Space and Time’s Figurative Art Competition for June 2015.  I was so pleased when I received notice that it receive a Special Merit Category Award!

I printed the image on fine velvet watercolor paper and framed it for the father.  He was very pleased with this unexpected Christmas gift.
