Portrait photography contest was a great opportunity to show off your skills in the field which is considered as one of the most difficult in photography. Portrait photography requires a lot of commitment from both the photographer and the model. It is necessary to take care of the good lighting conditions, remember that the background cannot divert attention from our model, but it is also an integral part of the photo. You have to remember about the clothing and make-up, as well as skillfully edit the picture in the graphic program. „The portrait must have that "something" in it. Today everyone has an easy access to all of the equipment available on the market. Technically a good photo is extremely easy to make, it is more difficult to find something special” – says the editor-in-chief of Fotopolis.pl and Digital Camera Polska, one of the competition's Jurors.



The Jury looked at many factors that ultimately determined the final selection of the Winners. Composition and post-processing were important, but the most important were the idea and creativity. „The level of presented works was really good.. Pojawiła się niesamowita różnorodność. There were mostly digital-made photos, but also those made with vintage, analog cameras. The choice was not easy at all!” - says Arcadius Mauritz, photographer, chairman of the Jury. However, everyone managed to reach an agreement, and the result of negotiations are the winning works.
