Congratulations Stephen Reed! July 2020 PFRE Photographer of the Month

Published: 28/07/2020
By: Brandon

Congratulations to Stephen Reed from Dallas, TX; July 2020 PFRE Photographer of the Month! The theme this month was ensuite. As many of you know, we have been fine-tuning and working through the bugs of the new POTM/VOTM contest platform and I think we're pretty much there, so thank you for your patience and continued participation. As usual, thank you to everyone who participated and to the jurors who took time out of their busy schedules to contribute their votes and thoughtful commentary.

Here are the top five entries based on the jurors voting:

July 2020 PFRE Photographer of the Month Stephen Reed

  1. Stephen Reed - #118
  2. Nima Mohammadi - #106
  3. Dan Francis - #117
  4. Gary Kasl - #126
  5. Tacey Jungmann - #134

Please feel free to view and comment on any of this month's entries here.

Here is what Stephen had to say about his photo:

Holy... Guacamole! I certainly didn’t expect to see this bit of great news come my way today! Given the world we are in now, this was a wonderful surprise. This photo came about pretty simply. It was a garden home shot on an overcast day, so there was plenty of soft light and not much of a view out of the window to deal with. I used three small Flashpoint strobes--one handheld in the bath, one in the bedroom, and one in the small office off the bedroom (bedroom and office are reflected in the mirror). I also added a very slight window pull. Ambient light did most of the work. Camera was a Nikon D750 with a 14-24mm lens.

A big thanks to the judges for taking the time to comment on and critique the photos. I’ve always found it hard to step back and judge my own work, so getting the opinion of the judges is invaluable. For those who don’t enter the contest, I suggest you do so. Take the critiques to heart and use it to improve your work. Also, a big thanks to this entire community. I keep a very low online profile, but feel truly blessed to have PFRE and all of the contributors to turn to with any questions or concerns. The video courses, e-books, and general advice are a gold mine. Thanks to all who have helped elevate our profession and raise the bar!

Stay safe and happy shooting!

Stephen Reed
