|the Winning Image in this Years Digital Photographer of the Year 2011 Sports Category|
I am almost speechless from excitement ,about a month ago I received a email from the Digital Photographer of the Year Awards telling me that ALL THREE of my images had made it onto the shortlist of this years award . Well I am MEGA excited , yes I said it MEGA excited to announce that one of my images has won a third place in the Action category , and another two images were shortlisted .
This was a great project ,I have to thank Katy my muse and Gina for there help and hard work to make my visions possible and Inez Subtil my assistant that day .
‘Anything is Possible” is the Tittle of this series , and here is a brief text that explains what we wanted to create .
“We wanted to capture the power, weightlessness and dynamism of sporting agility – the idea that the human body can do anything and everything with enough dedication, training and natural aptitude.
This image is shot from a low angle to give the runner a sense of majesty and command; like she is bigger than her adversaries of bad weather, aching muscles, fellow competitors… Sport is a great leveller that disregards the boundaries that wealth, race, language and sex often present and we wanted the image to have that sense of uplift and optimism as though anything is possible.”
