UKBC Regional Photos

espresso_dropI had the opportunity to tag along to the UKBC Regionals in Hillsborough on Wednesday, camera in tow. The set-up was definitely biased towards the competitors and judges, leaving us photographers clamoring for good angles and light. So, I did my best.

Sadly, I was unable to stay long enough for Julia's turn at the machines!

These are just a few highlights of the winners at work. Congrats to ALL the competitors, especially the first-timers.
