Last month I held my first Instagram contest tied in with my Photography As Art seminars. Drawing from a range of topics I cover in these seminars, I chose color as the focus of this first contest, and the amount of fantastic entries was overwhelming.
In the end, we had to choose a winner, and although it took some time and help from my staff to narrow down these entries, we all came to a consensus on an image we were drawn too.
This capture by Gretchen Shepherd (instagram: @imagesbygretchen) stood out to us as a great use of color, combining off-camera colored glass work muted and reflected in the pond contrasted with the more vivid and brightly colored koi themselves.
Congratulations Gretchen, and thank you to everyone who participated!

Next week I will begin another contest in anticipation of the Photography As Art seminar happening in Boston on July 17th, and I look forward to seeing more of your entries. Follow me on Instagram to participate!
