Australian Photography Magazine Photographer of the year

Recently found out that my "Library Series" from my "Table Series" managed 6th place in the portrait section of the Australian Photography magazine Photographer of the year for 2016. You can see my wonderful certificate here .  On reflection it appears that the portrait section of most of these competitions seem to be focussed on Black and White imagery.  In that past, I have shied away from black and white portraits because my work wasn't strong enough in my opinion.  It's a challenging mindset for a photographer I think and therefore I think I need to broaden my portrait work and focus on B&W more moving forward.  It's not just about converting a successful colour image into monochrome.  The lighting, the shadow, the subject matter, all have to be successfully incorporated.  So to that end, more of my work moving forward should push in this direction
