Alta Oosthuizen from Pretoria Photographic Society is our October winner!

Alta, congratulations on your winning image - Fencing Motion

Pretoria Photographic Society   Alta Oosthuizen   Fencing Motion 

Alta says:
I always wanted to take this image. The chairman of Tuks Fencing Club was very kind to offer 2 of his fencers to be the models. Me and two of my photography buddies played together to make this image work. The fencers were placed on a school hall stage with a modelling light to generate the motion effect and with a Speedlight set on rear curtain sync, the fencers were frozen in the picture. It was trial and error to get the exposure time right, but as soon as we had that covered, taking the pictures was a whole lot of fun!!

Our 1st runner-up is Martin Barber from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with "Dark Thunder"

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?


This is a PSSA monthly competition where clubs enter their monthly Senior winner onto Photovault. Appointed judges select the winning image.  The monthly winner gets displayed on the home page of our Web site for the duration of the month.  

For the Senior Club Competition Winner of the Month, a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the Senior club winner via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com

Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded here  doc

Frequently we do require high resolutions of these images as PSSA use them for Print Exhibitions to promote PSSA as well as showcasing the work being done around the country.

At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Senior Club Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
