The IPA today announced Elizabeth Williamsberg’s portrait, “Following the Old Masters,” has won honorable mention in the Professional Portrait category for the 2019 International Photography Awards.
“In photography, one of the styles of lighting we often use is known as “Rembrandt” light, but aside from his name, there often isn’t anything else about a portrait using Rembrandt light that is evocative of his work. This portrait was an attempt to evoke not only his signature use of light, but also the feel of an Old Masters’ painted portrait.” — Elizabeth Williamsberg
