I am really excited to share with all of you that 2nd time I got
place ) on Dpchallenge contest. It was with the my image "Tired of Life" in DPchallenge contest "Weathered
There are some really interesting coincidences with this image. The same person's portrait gifted me my 1st blue on DPchallenge contest. The coincidence is that it happened almost 1 year after I got a winning shot of him (Shepherd
There is no prize for winning but the satisfaction of winning among the best photographer is priceless! That urge of winning had improved my photography knowingly & unknowingly. For winning in such contest one try to learn more, look around for subject. I was also able to update my portfolio with variety of subjects & concepts. This is important for a non-professional hobbyist since they have to take time from their non-official hours.
His name is " Jitro". I visited again almost 1 year after & this time he really seems to be tired of life due to old age. He was so week that I avoid ed to make a request for posing. Technically I was expecting him against sunset light for getting catch lights in his eyes but nevertheless he added another beautiful portrait in my portfolio.The side light also added to enhance the texture of his skin exploring the marks of ages.
His expressions though not very pleasant but connects to the reality of problem he his facing. It was also fulfilling the requirement of contest "Weathered". The signs left by the time in the wrinkles of his skins & a human fatigued by health & age.He is surely going to get a nice gift for being responsible of two beautiful portraits in my portfolio.
