PHOTTIX PASM One Shot Portrait Shoot Competition


Phottix and PASM Workshop announced today the PHOTTIX PASM One Shot Portrait Shoot Competition.

Welcome to the PHOTTIX PASM One Shot Portrait Shoot Competition. In order to celebrate the upcoming first anniversary of PASM Workshop (PASM), we here at PASM have come together and organized this fabulous portrait photo shoot competition with Phottix as our major sponsor. We hope you all can come participate and see how you fare in th…is competition. We believe the format is quite exciting, similar to the concept from the TV series, “The Shot”.

Winning is not the most important thing, participating is!

PHOTTIX PASM One Shot Portrait Shoot Competition is a four-round competition that will put photographers in one of the most nerve-wrecking shoots ever.

The competition

Starting November 2010, twenty-four (24) photographers will be dueling in three monthly competitions for a seat in the final eight (8) spots in the Ultimate round. For each round, the organizers will come up with a fixed set and model(s). Photographers will have 15 minutes on the shooting lane, figuring out their lighting, communicating with the model(s) and coaching them into the right pose for that ONE shot. After taking that ONE shot, photographers will have 15 minutes to select one picture, re-touch and submit.

All scores for the first three-rounds will be tallied up and the eight (8) contestants with the highest scores will enter into the Ultimate round – the grand finale!

For the Ultimate Round, all scores will be reset. This round will be run in the same format, utilizing both a fixed set and model(s). Contestants are tested for preparation and execution on lighting, composition and communication. Judges will be scoring each contestant’s final ONE shot live at the studio together with a live audience.

在每一比賽回合中,攝影師須在十五分鐘內完成所有拍攝,當中包括燈光準備、模特兒指導等。時間愈見緊湊,壓力倍感增加,功力愈要發揮,比賽愈見精彩。15分鐘的拍攝時間過後,攝影師有另外的十五分鐘時間,去選擇及修飾最精彩的一張相片,然後提交大會。每一回合的分數,將於下一輪比賽前才會公佈,令比賽更為刺激緊張,不到最後亦不知鹿死誰手。

首三輪比賽積分如下,累積得分最高的八位參賽者將可進入最後一輪的終極賽。

第一名 – 25分
第二名 – 18分
第三名 – 15分
第四名 – 12分
第五名 – 10分
第六名 – 8分
第七名 – 6分
第八名 – 4分
第九名 – 2分
第十名 – 1分

第四輪終極賽賽制和首三輪的比賽相同,但第四輪的分數將會重新計算。而最後八強的參賽者會在三位評判及現場觀眾前一展身手,以最後的十五分鐘內完成他們最後的 「ONE Shot」 競逐「Phottix PASM ONE Shot」最佳攝影師的寶座。
