Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Curves…curves can be smooth and sensual, or icily perfect. Curves make us want to reach out to caress, or admire rigid geometric perfection. Curves can make us smile. Show us your best curvy B&W images—what comes to mind when you think of Curves? The judge will be looking for images that interpret the theme in interesting ways that engage the viewer; plus the normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit. No color at all is permitted; only shades of black + white.
CONTEST JUDGE: Kevin O’Connor started photographing in B&W when he was 10! He’s now a professional photographer, designer, and color management expert (ironic!). He teaches well-received classes in these subjects, delighting his students with wit, patience, and a deep knowledge of these subjects gained over 35 years of professional work. He celebrates seeing other photographers’ work as they celebrate light and shadow, composition and form. B&W is Kevin’s first love.
