This months theme was extra special, we had guest judge Critsey Rowe of Couture Boudoir, author of best selling book “Boudoir Photography- The Complete Guide To Shooting Intimate Portraits“ helping us out this month. Plus we upped the ante with a cash prize in addition to the website package.
Our WINNER! Ole Vangsgaard titled “Swan Table”
Critsey Rowe commented:
“It was such an honor to be asked to judge Creative Motion’s boudoir photo competition. It was really hard choosing a winner because there were so many great entries! No doubt there are some truly talented artists in our industry. I chose the winner based on composition, lighting, posing and the overall sexiness of the image. I was drawn to “Swantable” by Ole Vangsgaard, because the pose is super sexy and I love the use of soft beautiful light on the subject. Boudoir posing can be really challenging with real women and you can see how creative Ole’s work is by this image. The photo is not only sexy but romantic and well executed. Congratulations Ole Vangsgaard for creating a winning image!”
We also have a second place winner for most VOTES. With a total of 232 votes second place goes to…Shawna Griffith Titled: Divine Temptation (Shawna wins a copy of Critsey Rowes Book).
