We promised you another great contest, so here it is! We've teamed up with Your Photo on Canvas (YPOC)
to give away one exclusive 20" x 30" print on stretched canvas AND one 20" x 30" of your choice! (Total prize pack is $250.) When YPOC asked us to pick our favorite photographer, it was easy, we chose Matthew Priestley
. His unbelievably beautiful portraits
look like they could have been ripped from the pages of a high-end fashion magazine. Our favorite photo from Priestley is the one Eugene and I are holding above, which tells the story of an idealized, old Hollywood beauty who's thinking about her long, lost love.
Like a lot of fluke accidents, this was the photographer's last shot of the day. As Priestley explains, "I didn't like how these last shots looked in the camera because it was a cloudy day and the idea was to have some direct sunlight with a fill light from the front, but the soft, diffused sunlight and the soft studio lighting created this blanket of warm light around her. It was much better than what I was looking for, and has since been one of the most recognized photos I have taken."
Lucky for you, one Met member is going to win this exclusive canvas PLUS another 20" x 30" canvas of your own shot!
In the comments section, give us one word that describes this photo.
(You can use beautiful, gorgeous, amazing, etc.)
