Member of Merit 26th February 2009

We are pleased to announce that our very first Member of Merit award goes to Clafra.

Clafra has recently been posting a series of excellent portraits. What struck us was that they were taken when he was travelling, and while most of us would be minimizing our kit, he has been using off camera flash (or flashes), umbrellas, reflectors, lighting stands, tripods and all of the associated paraphernalia. Not only that, but his subjects are, at best casual acquaintances or more often complete strangers who canít even speak his language!

Starting out with available light portraits, Clafra has shown a lot of determination to improve his portrait technique, and has made a great effort to get these results that are not just down to chance.

Congratulations Clafra

Your 25 rep points will be awarded and the Member of Merit avatar will be added to your account for the next month.

Re: Member of Merit 26th February 2009

Thank you very much Pixalo Crew!

I'm glad that you like my work and encourage me to continue. The only thing which concerns me is, how will I actually be able to fly back without the need of an Antonov.

If you do have to resort to using an aircraft, I'll bet you will get portraits of the baggage handlers, the ground crew, check in staff, aircrew, fellow passengers........
