First Prize Winner
Tom Sperduto
Congratulations to Tom Sperduto, for taking the winning photograph in our 5th Annual Perfect Portraits Photo Contest.

Part of a personal project, “I was inspired to see the expressions of children while wearing their parents’ military uniforms,” Tom Sperduto explains. “The portrait was shot on the Fort Meade Army Base in Maryland with a Nikon D4 and Nikkor 85mm ƒ/1.4 lens. I used a Profoto AcuteB 600R with a midsized Octabank for lighting.”

“I was inspired by a painting I saw many years ago,” says Tyler Burk. “I’m not even sure who the artist was, but it made me want to re-create it in a photo. I’m actually quite pleased with the outcome.”

“This photo was taken with my Nikon D5000 on Thanksgiving Day 2009 at our family gathering in Riverside, California,” remembers Melanie Maclean. “My brother-in-law was holding his grandson—my great-nephew—with the window light hitting them nicely. It’s one of my favorite family shots.”
