At the end of December the top 5 in the Photographer of the Year Competition were as follows:
Rank Name Total
1 Dillon Boyer 75
2 Tommy Toomey 56
3 Steve Baker 44
4 Shane Turner 44
5 Maura Miller 44
Dillon is away out in front however because of the numbers attending the meetings and the number of entries in the competitions we have decided to increase the number of places getting points to 15 in themed competitions and 25 in Open Competitions. This means a total of 240 points are available which is easily enough to overhaul anyone in the top 10 places.
I will now outline some tips for better Black and White Photography. Shoot in Raw this will give the most control over the final image in post-production. Secondly shoot in colour and convert afterwards this option is almost as good as shooting in raw. Use as low an ISO number as possible add noise later if you want that grainy effect and finally shot in low contrast light. Overcast days like we have at this time of the year are great for Black and White shots.
