FP4 Party October 2016 – winner announcement and honourable mentions

We’re sitting at the week before the start of FP4 Party #04 and that can only mean one thing: time to revisit the October’s Party #02 and make a few announcements!

You’ll remember that we wrapped up the best of the week into a single post and asked for you to vote on your favorite from our shortlist of 14 images. Well the votes are in and it’s time to announce our winner, Ady Kerry!

Congratulations, Ady!

Before we get to Ady’s image, it’s only right that we also make a note of the honourable mentions for October 2016.

This was a tough party to judge; the quality of entries just gets better and better. Although we ask you, the FP4 Party participants to judge who is crowned winner, someone still has to make tough decisions around shortlisting the crop down.

We couldn’t possibly include everyone and there were quite a few stand-out entries that we felt needed to be given some recognition. This is for you, Denise, Joe, Ashley, Sergio, Rachel, Matthieu, Lance and Junwin.

FP4 Party October 2016 winner – Ady Kerry

Congratulations again to Ady (@AdyKerry) for his entry, which was voted the winner by the rest of FP4 Partygoers in our poll. We reached out to Ady a little earlier and asked him to tell us about the image, “Storm clouds over the English Channel”.

Storm clouds over the English Channel - Ady Kerry

Storm clouds over the English Channel – Ady Kerry

I have been playing with empty seas for a few months now. Whether they are long exposures, simple blocks of colour or just nice cloudscapes, they have an attraction. It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing, I can always make a picture of the sea.

This image was taken in Deal while on holiday for my partner’s 40th birthday. The place we had rented looked straight out over the channel. When the light or sea looked promising I just picked up the tripod, with camera already attached and walked 20 yards across the beach to the tide line. I would then wait for the right light, clouds and waves depending on what exactly I was trying to achieve.

I always have a vision of the final image before I press the shutter. I know what is important to me and what I am prepared to let go. Generally, I expose for the highlights in seascapes, as the clouds are so important I don’t want to lose the detail, the shadows can almost do their own thing, which obviously makes them much darker and sometimes I will get some pretty large areas of D-max. That is my style. Film is not cheap and every frame costs money so wastage is not great, getting it right before you press the shutter is a great idea.

For the choice of developer, I must give a nod to Richard at NT Photoworks in Folkestone, Kent. He has a fantastic photo store with loads of great gear and has much to answer for as I bought my first Pentax 67 off him too. He recommended I try APH-09. I love it. Easy to work with, no powder mixing and is just produces the results I am looking for.

Thanks for selecting my image, it is much appreciated, and well done to the others who made the shortlist. It’s a clean slate again now so I must try harder next month!

 

We’re all looking forward to seeing the results of shoot week for #FP4Party #03, which starts on November 7th. Remember that during shoot week we’re looking for pictures of your camera, other gear and locations.
