Congratulations Nima Mohammadi! March 2021 PFRE Photographer of the Month

Published: 02/04/2021

Congratulations to Nima Mohammadi of Gambrills, MD - March 2021 PFRE Photographer of the Month! The theme this month was "Kitchen".

March 2021 POTM winner

Here are the top 3 entries from March's contest:

  2. Kristine Kohl #383
  3. Dan Solomon #367

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

Here is what Nima had to say about his image:

WOW! I can not believe this, Honestly. It's really an honor to be recognized by judges who I admire a lot and look up to.

This was shot for a Designer/Remodeling company over a month ago. 3 lit shots and One ambient shot. It was an overcast day with plenty of soft light. 

Nikon Z6, Tamron G2 15-30mm with FTZ adaptor, f/8, ISO400, shot at 25mm and cropped. Used Godox AD300 on the camera right, above of camera, and one on the camera left closer to the far cabinets in 3 Lit shots.

Not the composition I usually choose for the kitchen but for some reason I really like it plus I wanted to try something new.

Again, what an honor! 2.5 years ago I set a goal to enter PFRE Contest when I have a worthy image and my goal was to finish in the top 5. What a great feeling to reach your goal. Special thanks to all the people I have the privilege to learn from and their support.
