UPR MEETUP WINNERS

Congratulations to everyone who finished and successfully delivered their photos for the first UPR Meetup / Pop-up Race event of this year. This was a great way to get ready for race day. We tested out our gear and agility to move around and snap photos on a tight schedule.

The Jury (Eli Dijkers) has selected his favourite 3 sets and we will award the winners with UPR World tickets.

These were the Meetup themes:

T1 - I like your style!
T2 - Light and shadow
T3 - The other side

The photographers showed a surprisingly wide selection of images. Almost everyone has succeeded in making at least one, but often several, beautiful images. That is quite an achievement given the time constraints and the imposed themes. What is also striking is that it is difficult for many photographers to work in series; often it flies in all directions or there is just too much overlap. Some people always know how to use exciting light and choose the moments well. Switching within a series between black and white and color can work, but often it distracts too much.
