This image has just been awarded in the prestigious international photography contest ND Awards 2020 from London with one Honorable Mention on the section People/ Fashion and Beauty in Professional level. There have been thousands of works from almost 100 countries sent.
The Neutral Density Photography Awards, that come from the outstanding ND magazine in London, have as objective to promote photography and the photographers. Their idea is to create new opportunities to present the most valuable work to audiences around the world and build a place where photographers can show different points of view. The jury is composed by highly acclaimed industry professionals, among them: gallery owners, editors and renowned photographers.
ND Awards site entry description
I´m strongly interested on building an atmosphere from the scratch in the studio rather than just capturing natural scenes, where inevitably the photographer can’t take part directly on the light behavior and some scene elements- although these differences lead us to an interesting scenario in other sense.
So I pre-produced all conditions with the model’s charisma in mind, that fitted perfectly with my idea for these beauty-fashion-oriented and light mood based portraits.
Model: Ndeye Goulo.
Makeup & styling: BBG.
Location: Ramon Vaquero’s studio, Vigo, Spain.
Photo, light & retouch: Ramon Vaquero.
Thank you very much once again the organization and jury of the Awards this new award ND.
