Savvy Studios - The Recent APPA's

Well PMA and the APPA's have come and gone again. This year it was all held in Bris Vegas so we were fortunate enough to be able to go along and check out some new toys and watch a little of the judging of the photography awards.

Alex entered the awards for the first time and did quite well with the following two (out of four) prints.

This photo was captured in the hallway of the hotel where the lovely Zoe was getting ready. Where possible, we try to use available light sources rather than flash and Zoe was posed under one of the downlights in the hall. We loved the vintage feel and the femininity of the resulting image and thought it might fare well at the awards. It did... scoring 80 out of a possible 100 to attain a silver award.

This next image was entered in the wedding documentary category. The father of the bride is blind after having survived a stroke two years earlier. Alex captured this during the vows; dad crying, unable to see his beautiful daughter on her wedding day, with mum looking on. This touching image scored 85 out of 100 to attain a silver award with distinction.

The other two entries shown below were unlucky and just missed out on silver awards, scoring in the high 70's.

Coming up next: Some of our charity work and supporting a local club
