In the background, he has used a slow shutter speed to create a motion blur on ballerinas performing on stage. Over the top of that picture he has blended an image of a young Vietnamese girl waiting for her turn in the spotlight. "The little girl is shy about going on stage, but she wants to be a ballerina," Arthur said. Both photographs were originally printed in colour, but Arthur discovered that changing the picture to black and white brought a new quality to the image. "I think the various shades and tones of grey work well, and I've been told [by colleagues at The Entrance Camera Club] that the black and white really shows the soul of the little girl." The picture is a favourite of Arthur's because he has long been a champion of multicultural causes, including in Bankstown. The young people in the picture were photographed at the Bankstown Town Hall during an annual children's festival that he helped to develop. This striking image of ballerinas has become something of a bridesmaid at photographic competitions, not that the photographer's complaining... Toukley amateur photographer Arthur Roy was rapt to be awarded $600 for second prize overall at this year's Wyong Shire Photographic Competition. "I was thrilled. I really was," he said, showing not even a tinge of disappointment that he missed out on the main prize. You see, Arthur has had some practice at coming to terms with second place. The image, entitled When I Grow Up, claimed second prize in the Shoalhaven Photographic Club's 2010 Biennial National Photographic Competition (which was open to amateur and professional snappers). It also earned second place at the Toowoomba Agricultural Show Photographic Competition in the creative digital division. "I have won other awards," Arthur said, smiling. Snapshot Photo: When I Grow Up Photographer: Arthur Roy Camera: Canon EOS 5D Lens: 28 to 135mm Biggest challenge: Taking 60 frames with a two-second shutter speed to get the desired ballerina shot for the background. Tip: "Carefully read the terms of any photographic competition, and make it an artistic production." SOUL: When I Grow Up. Picture by Arthur Roy. FAVOURITE: Arthur Roy at his Toukley home.
