Great news for my photography!
I have just found out that my black and white fine art trees series “Catharsis”, a multi-awarded series of winterscapes and one of my favorite landscape series, has won another award.
This time in the prestigious Paris Awards PX3 2015 WHITE Competition, where my series won Honorable Mention in Professional Category Nature.
You can see the entire series “Catharsis” or purchase prints on my website, and if you want to read more about the artistic concept and the creation of these photographs, I talk about these images in my posts at the links below and I have published a tutorial and “How To” for this series presenting the black and white processing principles and the creation of the photographs, from different points of view: vision, composition principles and structure, tips and explanation of the black and white fine art approach.
Also you can see the rest of the awards the series won in the past in the AWARDS section of my website.
Congratulations to all the PX3 White winners, the awarded images I’ve seen are fantastic.
Small reminder for those who haven’t seen it. I just posted recently the webinar I presented for DxO. You can watch and read about it here: How to create Black and White Fine Art Architectural Photography – DxO Webinar There is also an eBook discount for those who watched the webinar. Details in the post above.
