In honor of Fashion Week around the world in September, we’ve been running a competition for fashion portraits edited with PortraitPro. We’ve had some great entries to this competition and we’re very excited by the great work that our users are doing with their photography software.

We’re very pleased to announce our winner, Krystal Hills, whose work impressed all the judges. Here is her winning entry, but all of her work impressed the judges, so you can see the rest of it here.

Krystal Hills

The team who helped Krystal to create her winning image: Model: Elizabeth Larossa, Hair Stylist: Ryan Jesse, MUA: Meachy Harris.

Krystal said: "About the photo, I gave my team a hair and makeup challenge and they jumped completely out of the box with the art they created for our model. For lighting, I used a silver PLM umbrella and an Alien Bees 800 flash unit so that I could capture all of the colors the model wore. The model danced to a variety of music genres throughout the shoot as I captured her simultaneously for this art piece. "

Our Runners Up were also great. They were:

Inspiration is everywhere and I’m opening my doors.” Amanda Iqbal is on Facebook here.

Duy Ngo

Duy Ngo said: "Actually I'm a songwriter! One day, I came to a photo shoot for a new album, I found that music and photography are very similar, and I could do both well. And now, after 5 years, photography is really bringing me more income than my music!"
