This was hard! I like them both for different reasons. I thought the dancers were having fun with Caleb and he seemed to have a very good sense of timing. I thought it was interesting that Jacob went upstairs to photograph the dancers without distractions, when Caleb had the cleaner background downstairs just with the light falloff. (It looked like an ice rink.) I liked Jacob's background though. That rustic setting and the quality of his light made the shot really interesting to me. I also liked that he did the same move over and over with different variations. I think that persistence paid off. Jacob gets my vote. But I really did like them both!

Nice job to both photographers! Really enjoyed this episode. I had to give it to Jacob on this. I liked the lighting and composition a little better. And to be able to freeze motion like that and still be tack sharp (from what I can tell), bravo! I'm sure the flash duration on those Profotos didn't hurt either! Can't wait for the next episode!

Caleb does some amazing work. I am a fellow photographer based out of Iowa and I have been following his work for a couple months now and I always enjoy seeing him grow and learn new things. Been able to exchange comments a few times which was cool & I look forward to seeing if he wins! Good luck!

Jake the snake for the win!

John David Pittman's picture

Damian and I thought we may have gone too far with the REFOCUS on this one but both Caleb and Jacob showed true professionalism in having to deal with not being able to verbally direct their subjects. Great job gentlemen! You represented yourselves and the Little Rock photography market well. Good luck!

Gordon Clark's picture

Wow both great, and both very different. I think I'm going with Jacob, based on the difficulty of the shot and the amazing expression the dancer has!

Senzela Atmar's picture

GO CALEB. You da mannnn!

LOVE this episode! As a dancer, having just done a couple of photo shoots with photographers not familiar with dance, this would have been great for them to watch beforehand. Would have been nice to get the opinions of the dancers to see how they think they did. I personally had to go with Caleb. His timing was just spot on. Jacob...the dancer in your pic had beautiful extensions, but failed to capture that in this pic. Her back leg in this shot is just shy of full extension. This is a VERY tough jump to catch perfectly on film as both legs need to be fully extended. Both did a GREAT job considering their unfamiliarity though! Great job! :)

Chris Beatty's picture

Jacob killed it. Nice work!

Becky Milner Curry's picture

Great job, Jacob. Love the lighting and the overhead beams and the way the model is centered between the windows.

Anthony Valley's picture

Slaton. All the way.

Paul Frederick's picture

I like them both and couldnt imagine shooting without communicating! Of the two pics entered I like Jacob's composition better.
