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.

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.

I’m presently getting a bank of new pictures ready for when I can begin competing for my EFIAP Silver level. None Shall Pass has been created from a studio shot of a brilliant young model, Emily, and a background from Southwell Workhouse. It was a productive day in the studio and there are, hopefully, a few more images in the pipeline.
