First Place
First Place Winner
Gary Ehinger
Congratulations to photographer Gary Ehinger, whose gritty, dramatic image took First Place in our annual portrait competition. "This picture was taken in my small garage studio when my son Aaron, a photographer from Chicago, was home for the holidays," says Ehinger of his winning image. "After shooting a few pictures we decided to make things a bit moody and dark, so we decided to pull up the hoodie and take a few drama shots. The results were good, but when processed lightly through Nik HDR software, and after deciding to go black and white with the shot, it gave it even more drama."

NIKON D200, NIKKOR 50MM F/1.4 LENS.
