ExpoImaging and One Model Place Announce Winners of Ray Flash Photo Contest
Photographers’ Winning Images Showcase Ray Flash Ring Light; Will Be Featured in ExpoImaging Advertisements
Watsonville, CA & Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 26, 2009 — ExpoImaging, Inc. (www.ExpoImaging.net), developer and distributor of innovative camera accessories including the Ray Flash Ring Light Adapter, and One Model Place, the world’s largest online portfolio and talent community, today announced the winners of its contest to find the best photos shot with the Ray Flash. Photographer Hector Perez was awarded first place for his close-up glamour portrait. Second place winner, JD Millazo, was selected for his outdoor fashion shot. In addition to receiving high-end photo gear and Platinum+ membership to One Model Place, the photographers will have their winning images used in highly-visible advertisements in upcoming trade publications.
“We received a number of outstanding entries and were impressed with the diverse effects One Model Place photographers achieved with the Ray Flash,” said Erik Sowder, president of ExpoImaging. “The winning entries clearly demonstrate the professional quality results produced by the Ray Flash. We hope other photographers will be inspired by Hector’s and JD’s award-winning photos.”
The Ray Flash is a lightweight adapter that converts your hot shoe flash into a ring light. Weighing less than a pound, the Ray Flash attaches in seconds by sliding onto the head of the flash. Once installed, you can shoot manually, or use your camera’s TTL functions. The versatility of the Ray Flash makes it ideally suited for use in fashion, portrait and macro photography as either a main, or fill light.
“I am grateful to ExpoImaging and One Model Place for the opportunity to share my work with the world,” said Hector Perez, first place winner of the Ray Flash Photo Contest. “The Ray Flash was absolutely critical in capturing this image. It is an easy to use, cost-effective and versatile adapter that I highly recommend to all professional photographers.”
The contest was open to all members of One Model Place. All entries were judged by a team of professional photographers. To view the winning photos, visit www.ExpoImaging.net.
Hector Perez’s winning image will be published in a full page ad in the June issue of Rangefinder, while JP Millazo’s photo will be included in a half-page ad in the June issue of Shutterbug. In addition to this valuable publishing opportunity, both winning photographers will receive high-end photo gear, and a Platinum+ membership to One Model Place, allowing them access to all of the community’s premier features and functions. Prizes include light modifiers from Honl Photo, ExpoDiscs, a Lensbaby Composer, an 8GB Pro Card from Lexar, and instructional videos from Kelby Training and Software Cinema.
“The Ray Flash contest is just one of many valuable opportunities One Model Place provides photographers,” said Sean Murdock, professional photographer and director of creative marketing at One Model Place. “We were pleased to host the contest in partnership with ExpoImaging, and we congratulate the winners on their exceptional work.”
