Hillsdale, NJ (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
The annual Hot One Awards honor the hottest products for professional photographers. From hundreds of entries received, a panel of judges, who are all professional photographers, name their top choice in dozens of photography products and services.
This year, the PPA judges chose the the DaisyGrip as the best posing tool in the photography industry with a Hot One Award.
Created out of necessity by child photographer Christine DeSavino, the DaisyGrip was designed to help capture the smile of a child. It does this by holding a wide variety of toys just above the lens of a camera. It can hold finger and hand puppets, stuffed animals, small toys, and even an iPhone® playing a child's favorite cartoon.
"It's such a great feeling to have won this award from PPA!" says DaisyGrip co-creator and child photographer Christine DeSavino. "Just two years ago my partner and I were asking ourselves how we could make capturing a child's smile a little easier, and now we are winning an award for our creation! I often look to PPA for both instruction and inspiration, and now we're part of the magazine...thank you PPA!"
The trusted panel of judges for the 14th annual Hot One Awards established the best new consumer products for its readers. “The winners of the 2013 Hot One Awards represent ‘the pro’s choice’ of new photographic products,” said Jeff Kent, Hot One Awards editor for Professional Photographer. “This isn’t some scientific analysis conducted by a bunch of clinicians in lab coats, but a poll of real pros working in the real world. The result is a list of worthy winners that help make professional photography easier, more creative and more efficient.”
For the past 13 years, the Hot One Awards have provided Professional Photographer magazine’s readership with a resource of the most effective and innovative products available in a variety of price ranges. Readers are treated to a resource compiled by independent, practicing professional photographers, selected for their expertise and knowledge. This year’s independent panel of more than 30 judges voted on products that ranged from cameras and lenses to photo albums and mobile apps. They made their selections based on overall quality, innovation, design, performance and value for the price.
