Contest goal:

Karaflazz is one of our best photographers we have and it is time we pay him our respect. You can choose between 2 goals in this contest: 1. either you reshoot one of his entries as best as you can or 2. you make a shot which we will mistake for a Karaflazz. Have a look at his portfolio here. There is one but: Karaflazz himself is not allowed to enter this contest! Sorry Dimitris, but you are allowed to comment, vote and give tips.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

kyricom: I want to find a flock of birds and do his icon! Seriously... a worthy choice ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
Eris: i ' m not into this kind of contents :/ ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
perfectway76: Could you please clarify goal 2? Thanks! ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
Wayne Cheah: I think Karaflazz should be allowed to enter BUT JUST FOR THIS ONE TIME under another name / moniker to see if he could still be beaten? The problem of course is that his style is so distinctive that he would be instantly recognizable. I do agree with perfectway that there might be some overlap / confusion between goals (1) & (2). However my best guess is that goal (1) is to do an "exact" copy of one of his works published here, and goal (2) is to "imitate" his distinctive style with another subject matter?

Chrys Rizzo: Ok people, this is a very very difficult challenge, karaflazz is not only one of the best photographer here, but he is a friend who tries to help other people to increase knowlegment. I'm only a beginner and surely no courage to enter this contest, but would like to leave here my special THANK YOU to karaflazz. ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
Wayne Cheah: Come on Chrys....Karaflazz has promised to be nice. ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
Alan2641: A link to the work you are trying to reproduce should be posted so we have some idea how well the homage is done. ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
kyricom: Hey, Dimitris... can you send over your model... I want to try and recreate some of those nudes ( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
karaflazz: Tickets are too expensive Mark...i can't afford it!!!
( 5 years and 1717 days ago )
friiskiwi: Mark, be careful what you wish for, Dimitris, may send himself. ( 5 years and 1716 days ago )
Contest Moderator: The goal is pretty straight forward, either copy one of his photographs as closely as you can, and in that case, you could post his version in your SBS.
The easier option (as he has some pretty impressive props) is just to imitate his style. Take a photo, that looks like it's one of his.
Good Luck. ( 5 years and 1716 days ago )
friiskiwi: Mark, be careful what you wish for, Dimitris, may send himself. ( 5 years and 1716 days ago )
MnMCarta: Well Dang! I gotta shave my head? or better yet... can I borrow your son? He seems to have the perfect personality (at least how you portray him) for taking him out on a shoot and he just works with ya. ( 5 years and 1716 days ago )
kyricom: It'd be ok if Dimitris sent himself. Be fun to hang out.
