Congratulations to our Senior Style Portrait Contest Winners!

Judges Holli True, Lindsay Adler, and Matt & Meghan Feyerabend chose the following winners:

1st place: Kristin Villano 

2nd place: Mandy Lynne

3rd place: Jess Bishop

Judge Lindsay Adler explains the 3 reasons why she picked the winning image by Kristin Villano:

"This image is successful because of the pose, Lensbaby effect, and expression. As with any good portrait, the expression of the subject is key to the image's success. Her smile here is genuine and glowing. The Lensbaby was used successfully in this image to help create a dream-like scene. The bottom of the dress almost melts away into the field. Finally, the pose is playful and fun. The negative space and triangles in the pose make it dynamic. Put these three ingredients together and you get a successful portrait!"
