Contest winner: Helga Duwendag-Strecker
®claryl: Was the winning motif a spontaneous picture and where was it taken?
HDS: My winning photo was taken for a photo book, more specifically a cookbook. I created a vegan cookbook for a family member.
®claryl: Did you do the cooking yourself and do you generally like to have an attractively laid table?
HDS: I cooked the dishes myself, presented them with the right decor and then photographed them. Table decor is always important for me, not just for a photo!
®claryl: What motivated you to send in a picture for the competition?
HDS: I often browse the internet looking for photo competitions. This is how I came across ®claryl and I thought that for the topic of "The laid table" my photo was a good one and very suitable.
®claryl: What is it that makes photography special for you?
HDS: Photography is my world anyway. I take photographs in order to capture special moments and convey them to the person viewing my pictures.
®claryl: Which picture would you like to have framed?
HDS: I would like to have a very expressive picture entitled "Slit eye" framed.
