The 2011 AAPI Convention and Trade Show has come to a close and we are excited to have 5 images that took first place in their categories! The AAPI Convention focuses on themed and event photography, and anyone who knows us also knows how much we love any type of vintage photography. While we spend most of our time on weddings, we relish the opportunity to stretch our creativity and think outside the box, and Vintage Photography does that for us. Our top 3 First Place winners (by Category):
Most Creative Digital Poster
Most Creative, Non-Digitally Enhanced. That’s right, no photoshop allowed – fits perfectly with our motto of “Shoot it right the first time, Don’t fix it in Photoshop later” 🙂 This is the 4th year in a row that Albertex Photography has taken first place in this category, and we are very proud of that.
Self Portrait – this was Bill’s pet project this year and was printed as a Lenticular photo. We have put it on the blog as a gif to give you a rough idea of what the final image looked like.
Some of our other favorite images that won ribbons:
Digitally Enhanced – digital enhancements included placing the pirate on the boat, turning on the light in the lantern, and placing the eclipse moon in the background.
Pirate – his one also qualified for Non-Digitally Enhanced but we can only enter one image per category
Other Era (ours is a World War II Pin-up image)
And an Honorable Mention went to Michelle and her beautiful collection of vintage hats and accessories (entered into the category Best Portrait of a Woman)
