'Beautiful Light Competition Winners

Here are the winners of our 'Beautiful Light' photography competition.

This month's theme of 'Beautiful Light' proved highly popular and we received an incredible amount of entries - from landscapes to products to portraits.

Light is an essential part of any photograph - it can make or break an image. Hard light, soft light, clear early morning light or technically perfect studio light - this month's theme allowed for a great scope of variety, and our members didn't disappoint. With a Broncolor Siros Lighting Kit up for grabs, the competition was fierce and this fantastic prize will allow our winner to create their own beautiful light - whenever and wherever they want.

The winner of the Broncolor Siros Lighting Kit is...

1st Prize

Romeo Bodolai 1st Prize
Competition winner Romeo Bodolai with a broncolor Siros lighting kit

1st Place - Romeo Bodolai

This shot by Romeo is a stunning capture that features multiple elements of beautiful light: the light shining through the fishing net catching the water drops, coupled with the dappled light reflecting on the roof of the cave and light rays through the haze are all beautiful light. Romeo wins himself a Broncolor Siros Lighting Kit for this shot, which was taken in Myanmar.

2nd Prize

Denis Lomme 2nd Prize
Second prize LEE filter big stopper

2nd Place - Denis Lomme

This shot by Denis Lomme, taken at the Mer de glace in Chamonix, was a favourite amongst the team and a perfectly captured moment of the afternoon light breaking through the clouds. Denis wins a Lee Filters Big Stopper.

3rd Prize

Jad Warde 3rd Prize
Third prize Karl Taylor lighting pack

3rd Place - Jad Warde

This simple but very clever shot by Jad was taken using natural light through a window. The diagonal lines create an interesting dynamic and we thought this was a unique take on the theme 'Beautiful Light'. Jad wins Karl Taylor Color Effects & Technical Lighting Packs.

  1. Thanks for including me in the final 8 guys.
    It was a huge boost for me before a trip to Utah Canyonlands to get some good work done, and i’m really pleased with the results. Your tutorials have made such a difference to my knowledge, skills and confidence. Got my 1st order for landscape photographs from an interior designer, very pleased with the results and I have a happy buyer and client.
    The pleasure of seeing my work displayed is hard to describe! I could not have achieved this without the courses.
    Really loving your courses.
    Regards from South Africa.

  2. I feel honored that you selected one of my pictures in the short listed images group to discuss in the Beautiful Light Competition Video. Grateful and Thankful.

    Thank you
    Adam DeBenedittis
