About the Photography Decathlon
You may remember a previous post about this competition. This year, I joined a team of photographers to compete in the 2015 Photography Decathlon in Salt Lake City. The decathlon consisted of ten image categories to be shot within 48-hours, at specific locations that were not revealed until the start of the competition.
Each team submits up to three images for each category. Each category has assigned locations spread out all over the place. I shot the People category for my team, and we knocked it out of the park. From shoot to final retouch, this post guides you through the award-winning, First Place shot. Learn more about the event at www.photodeca.com
22 Minutes and 2 Shots
In a nut-shell, the People category offered models and locations from which to choose. You could schedule as many models as you wanted, but only one half-hour with each at the assigned location. Through a series of miscalculations on my part, I arrived eight minutes late for my thirty minute slot. Our team opted to enter these two images, which both won category awards, First Place and an Honorable Mention.
