May 2017: Semi-Finals Dutch Canon GRAND PRIX Portrait 2017, the Netherlands
I’m very glad to announce that I made it to the Semi-Finals of the Dutch Canon GRAND PRIX 2017 Contest.
With three other semi-finalists we had to deliver 4 portraits of a male model we didn’t know or met until the day of the shoot – we all got 2 hours shooting-time. The jury wanted to see emotion and expressiveness in the pictures. With this little knowledge I decided to make these 4 images – from zero expression and emotion to 100% expression and emotion – and with every step in the next image of emotion I took a closer shot to make the expression more dramatic.
