Blue Ribbon Winner!

The Wisconsin Professional Photographers Association held their annual Fall State Convention last month in Wisconsins Dells at the Chula Vista Resort.  A big part of the convention is the photographic print competition and I’m happy to report that Nelson’s Photograph Studio landed three blue ribbons for photographic excellence!  The judging was especially tough this year and I’m very happy with my results.


Here’s one of the  images, Dominic was a senior from the class of 2009.  I’ve had this image on file for awhile wanting to work on it for competiton and I’m planning on sending it off to Nationals next spring.

The image was created at the studio using a wrap-around lighting method with reflectors.  The dramatic effect of this type of lighting was exactly what I was after for such a strong, athletic subject.  Dominic’s eyes just grab you and keep you in the image.  I titled this entry, “Bring It On”.  Thanks Dominic for the inspiration!
