My image ‘Youths Journey’ was included in the The Royal Photographic Society’s Digital Imaging Groups Projected Image Competition in 2015. Although I didn’t win one of the prizes, or the Gold Cup, it was great to score enough by the judges for it to be included in the DIGIT Magazine, and be shown at Warwick University’s Digital Imaging Expo in September 2015.
Although I make the argument for DSLR v Compact and Smartphone Images, this image was actually one of those ‘grab’ shots using a Samsung DV300F compact camera.
Originally shot in colour I felt Monochrome worked better. Technically the image is ‘blown’ out on the whites. The image is cropped and some of the dark areas are painted even darker with Photoshop. No other manipulation has been applied.
I’d be interested in your comments on this image; what does the image convey to you?
