First Acceptances towards Gold …

Just in from Foto Klub Novi Sad, the first acceptances of new images towards my FIAP / Gold accreditation. The model here is Mason, first in Peaky Blinders mode in Time Gone and then in Penance, a loose interpretation of the Atlas myth.

 

And this is Devonn in Through a Glass Darkly, part of a modern gangster set.

Finally, the really versatile and professional model, Rachelle Summer, as a Cabaret Dancer.

A handful of my older images also got accepted with a couple of awards, but they don’t count towards Gold, so will now be retired after a year’s hard work on my behalf.

Halfway to Silver …

So, to achieve my EFIAP Silver level, I need to have had at least 50 different pictures accepted into international Salons and a minimum of 100 acceptances total. Today, after six weeks, I have hit the halfway mark … 54 acceptances over 25 pictures, with six awards along the way. It’s getting a bit tougher now, as I had a few pictures stockpiled to give me a start. Time to get working again. This is the latest selection, sent off today to see what comes back.
From the top left, clockwise: The Cheat, None Shall Pass,Through the Looking Glass,Reflection, The Courtesan, The Last Piece of the Puzzle, When Shall We Three Meet Again, Ariel, Stoned, The Mad Hatter, Split Personality, Regrets, Into the Light, The Girl in the Pink Scarf, The Sorceress, Behind the Mask, Black Swan, Imprisoned, Out of the Shadows, Death of a Maiden.

5th Greek Photographic Circuit

18 acceptances from the 5th Greek Photographic Circuit, with The Sorceress continuing its run of awards with a Diploma 3; three new images got their first acceptances – The Seventh Veil, Great Heron Taking Off and Male Bearded Tit; and four fairly recent images also did well – Study in Red, Trinity, Medusa and Regrets. Happy with that, as they say.
