Thank you to everyone who contributed to this week’s Photo of The Week selection. We are so glad that we brought back this old favorite back to FashionPhotographyBlog.com because it reminded us that there is so much talent out there. We want to say a big congratulations to Amanda Lim for winning this week’s Photo Of The Week. It was a really close this week, where most of the week three photographers were neck and neck to take out the title. It was rather suspenseful. In the end Amanda’s photo was crowned.
We really love the way the photo encapsulated the theme of Valentines, with the hues of pink, but also the movement and drama created by the drapery flowing effortlessly contrasted with the static contrapposto pose of the female model. She stands strong in the picture like a divine goddess while the fabric writhes around her like a serpent around her body. So much intensity in one photo.
I think the styling and the make up suits the photo perfectly – effortless, romantic and feminine (and by feminine, I mean a strong warrior woman). The model is standing her ground while chaos or whimsy is whipping around her. There is a powerful tone present in this photo but also a sense of serenity, and I find the contrast absolutely inspiring and exciting.
The lighting that’s shining top down on the model’s face places emphasis on her majestic cheek bones and beautifully highlights the tone in her arms, the sleekness of her figure, folds in the dress as well as catching the fabric flowing around her body.
We are proud to present the first winner of our revived Photo of The Week competition. As the winner of this week, Amanda is being featured here on FashionPhotographyBlog.com and have her work critiqued. Not only that she will also appear on our social media sites as well.
