One response to “Renaissance Photography prize

    It is interesting to see this on your site as I am Michelle Compton, winner of the shape category for my photo ‘The shoulder’ above.

    My motivation for entering was to support a breast cancer charity as my dad’s sister had recently died of this . The organizer of the competition is very passionate about the charity and the competition has been growing yearly, raising considerable funds for victims of breast cancer.

    I feel incredibly proud to have been nominated as the winner of my category. I was able to attend the exhibition and award ceremony which was a great occasion.

    I got my first SLR aged 40 after deciding I wanted to take the types of photos I admired. I also attended an evening course in basic photography at my local college but a lot of my training has been achieved using the technique of trial and error, which works well for me as I like to be experimental!

    This particular photo was taken when I noticed how shadows from the blinds on my landing were forming great patterns on my son’s skin as he dried himself . I quickly ran to get my camera working as quickly as I could, guessing the sun or my son wouldn’t last too long before the moment was gone. I was really pleased with the result once I had cropped it to my liking, but was still very shocked to have won the category.

    I am not someone who is technically perfect. I freeze and switch off if anyone mentions light-metering and there are many technical things I will never understand. However, I feel I can see beauty and at times, as in this instance, can also capture it. I am certainly still learning and certainly still making mistakes, but I am really enjoying the journey.

    I hope you enjoy my photograph and the those of the other entrants.

    Kind regards,
    Michelle Compton
