Let there be lighting

  • Comment

There was an excellent response to the Staff vpi photographic competition, run in conjunction with aj. Readers were given disposable cameras for their entries, which had to capture images of landscapes, people, interiors or exteriors. They could also be purely abstract.

Given the basic nature of the cameras, the results were pleasing. The judges, including Grant Daniels of Staff Lighting and aj editor Paul Finch, were led by architectural photographer par excellence Richard Bryant.

The first prize is a Canon EOS50E, while second and third placed entries win a Canon EOS500N.

One aim of the competition was to encourage discussion of the vpi concept - 'verti-planar-illuminance', which emphasises the illumination of vertical rather than horizontal elements. This was not a compulsory element for entries, but it was gratifying to see that some had taken this to heart.
