So what’s your opinion?
My thoughts are very simple
If you photograph someone in a workshop or staged setup it’s your shot but not your effort. So I always say. Treasure those and only use when you know you can do it again
Decisive moments don’t come around often so when you run a competition I think you should really check the authenticity. A shot like this you can take your time with and find the right angles etc. In a real situation you can’t and than being able to pull it off deserves a price.
Also I have my doubts about this kind of setup. It’s like photographing homeless people and act like it’s a “cool” subject”
So what do you think?
