Contest winner: Martina Blascik
®claryl: Was the winning picture taken during a professional photoshoot?
MB: Yes, a couple of the pictures were from a photoshoot, and the others were taken privately.
®claryl: Do you work in the fashion sector - are you a model?
MB: I'm a part-time model and take part in a few photoshoots every now and then.
®claryl: What made you enter your photo in the competition?
MB: It was actually a spur-of-the-moment decision.
®claryl: What is it about photography that you particularly enjoy?
MB: For me photography is an art form as well as a hobby. I find it fascinating how people's auras can change in pictures. Every photographer sees you differently and I particularly enjoy being in front of the camera and then seeing the great results afterwards. It's always a fresh challenge for me in terms of my creativity.
