Rather than submitting a blog post or article to the Born Digital Wine Awards I thought I’d use my three available entries in the new photograph category, Wine Photo Essay. A gamble placing a set of black and white photos there perhaps, but I feel the images are strong as a set, stronger than when viewed in colour. The other sets will be a selection (a maximum of five photos are allowed per entry) from Visiting Hush Heath Estate and a simple three photo set entitled Red, White and Rosé. For the latter I still need to take a ‘white’ photo.
The fifth image, the Kante wine bottle, is included here for completeness but was not included in the final Born Digital Wine awards submission. I didn’t think it melded well with the others in the set (no barrels!) and was taken in a different location anyway.
The Born Digital Award winners will be announced at the end of May 2012.
