Grand Prize, Greg Hahner
Grand Prize Winner
Greg Hahner
Congratulations to GREG HAHNER, who takes the top prize in our third installment of the Perfect Portraits Photo Contest. In taking this self-portrait, Hahner accomplished two goals. The first was to try out his new lighting setup and the second was to create an image he could use for his music-related work. "I'd seen similar portraits done by other photographers and was inspired by the use of rim light to emphasize the silhouette of the subject," he explains. With a black collapsible backdrop behind him, his camera on a tripod in front and flash units all around, he fired away using a remote triggering system and a 10-second timer. Prizes include a $500 gift certificate to Bay Photo Lab, a Tamrac Evolution 9 Photo Backpack, a Gitzo Series 2 Systematic tripod with a GH2780QR Center Ball Head, a PNY 32 GB Pro-Elite Series SDHC Class 10 UHS-I Flash Memory Card, a Strobist Lighting Kit from LumiQuest and a 16x20 print of his photo from Duggal Visual Solutions.

Canon EOS-1D Mark II N, two AlienBees B800 flash units, Canon Speedlite, 7-inch reflectors, CyberSync remote triggering system
