Emma Carter – Pittsburgh Luxury Boudoir

Congratulations to Emma Carter from Pittsburgh Luxury Boudoir based in Pittsburg PA

Justin selected this image as the winning image because “The color, light, framing, expression, retouching. It’s just fantastic! The image really pops and evokes emotion.”

Niki Schaller – Niki Jade Boudoir

1st runner up is Niki Schaller from Niki Jade Boudoir based in Michigan.

Justin’s comments on this image “Beautiful light, the pose and composition. It gives the feeling and energy of a soft and intimate moment that the viewer has been invited a glimpse of.”

Heather Glenn – Elysian Bloom Boudoir

2nd runner up is Heather Glenn of Elysian Bloom Boudoir based in Dallas, Texas.

Justin selected this image because it has  “Beautiful light and editing. Every time you look at the photo, you discover a little bit more beyond the subjects face that draws all of the attention, while leaving your eye to find the rest.”

Maria Turner – Black Diamond Boudoir

This month also has an Honorable Mention, Maria Turner of Black Diamond Boudoir based in Houston, Texas

Comments from Justin on this Honorable Mention “Beautiful use of light, and negative space. A great photo indeed, but the pose and face position are just a bit shy of perfection. A little tweak to the pose and this could easily have been in competition for 1st place as well!”

Congratulations to the winners of the Monthly Choice Image Competition sponsored by UAF Photo Lab.  We look forward to seeing more amazing work from you and more AIBP members! Thank you so much to Justin for being out guest judge for July.  We know it’s never easy to select winning images as we have so many talented photographers.
