ExpoImaging Teams with One Model Place for Ray Flash Photo Contest
Contest to Award Photographers for Best Pictures Taken with Ray Flash Ring Light Adapter
WATSONVILLE, CA/MIAMI, FL, January 16, 2009—ExpoImaging Inc., developer of innovative camera accessories, including the ExpoDisc Digital White Balance Filter and the ExpoAperture2 Depth-of-Field Guide, and One Model Place, the world’s largest online portfolio and talent community, today announced a contest in which the best images shot with ExpoImaging’s Ray Flash ring light adapter will be published in national photo trade magazines. In addition to this valuable publishing opportunity, the winning photographers will receive high-end photo gear, as well as a Platinum+ membership to One Model Place.
Photographers interested in entering the contest must be members of One Model Place and should log onto http://www.onemodelplace.com/expoimaging to complete the simple entry form. Submitters must include both the contest photo taken with a Ray Flash, plus a photo of themselves shooting while using the product. Photos may be submitted for consideration from January 16 through March 31, 2009. All entries will be judged by a team of professional photographers and winners will be announced on April 15 at http://www.onemodelplace.com.
“This is a great opportunity to showcase the results that Ray Flash can offer to creative photographers,” said Erik Sowder, president of ExpoImaging, “Having just recently reduced the price of Ray Flash to make it more accessible to hobbyists and professionals alike, we expect to receive a lot of high-quality contest entries.”
The Ray Flash is a portable, lightweight adapter for shoe-mount flash units that creates a distinctive lighting effect, producing a virtually shadowless look on the front of the subject, while leaving a soft, even shadow around the edges. The versatile adapter is ideally suited for fashion, wedding, portrait, journalist and macro photography, as either a main or fill light.
The winning photo will be published in a full page ad in the June issue of Rangefinder, and its photographer will receive a complete set of Honl Photo Speed System light modifiers, an ExpoDisc, a Lensbaby Composer from Lensbaby, an 8GB Pro Card from Lexar, and instructional videos from Kelby Training and Software Cinema.
The second place image will be included in a half page ad in the June issue of Shutterbug, along with a starter set of Honl Photo Speed System light modifiers, an ExpoDisc, a Lensbaby Muse, a 4GB Pro Card from Lexar, and the Kelby Training and Software Cinema instructional videos.
First and second place winners will also receive a Platinum+ membership to One Model Place which allows photographers access to all of the community’s premier features and functions.
“The Ray Flash Photo Contest is an excellent way to present and promote the inspired work that the highly-talented One Model Place community produces,” said Sean Murdock, professional photographer and director of creative marketing at One Model Place. “The Ray Flash Photo Contest is one of many valuable opportunities a photographer can uncover in visiting One Model Place.”
