Serene Reflection

November 24, 2006

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Harvard, Illinois based photographer Ramiro Rodriguez of Rosy’s Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

We were so rushed during this part of the shooting session, I was trying to get some good images and the videographer was trying to get some good footage. I asked Martha to stand near the water, then I had to run around the little bend the pond makes to stand on a small cliff with a very steep incline. I only got this shot and another one where she is looking straight at me. I like this one because of the serenity of it and the colors. Other than a slight boost in saturation, this is straight from the camera.

I’ll call this one Daddy’s Ring. So often weddings are all about the bride. Here I had the great fortune to capture an intimate moment between the groom and his young son after the ceremony.

Today’s awesome photographs comes to us from Orange County California photographer Eric Cotter.  Eric gave me two photographs and asked me to choose — well I couldn’t, so I published both! You can view more of his awesome work at www.ericjweddings.com.  In the photographer’s own words:

This was a great time with Luke and Christina.   Most couples get this wet only on engagements or day after shoots, but these guys were so set on getting some killer stuff on their wedding day that they decided to just go for it..  To top it off, it had been raining for 2 days straight, and just as we walked down to the beach.. KABOOM we get this amazing sky. These are the days that make you remember why you are a photographer.

The Crowning

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from New York photographer Chris Hountas of Photography By Christos. In the photographer’s own words:

One of my favorite parts of a Greek wedding service is the crowning. This particular image was captured using off camera flash using a radio slave. For those that don’t know the crowing means that the bride and groom are crowned as king and queen of their own kingdom, the home. To see more of my work visit Photography By Christos

Lone Tree and Storm Clouds

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Chico California photographer Greg Coates of Divine Reflections Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

This photo was taken in Upper Bidwell Park, the city park in Chico, California. I hiked up onto a bluff where I spotted this lone tree in front of a dramatic, stormy sky. To top it off, it was one of the best years for wildflowers that California had seen in a long time, so I included some of those in the foreground. I got this shot just in time. The storm clouds dumped a torrent of rain just a few minutes after I got back to my car.

Blahh!

Today’s awesome post comes to us from New York photographer Minwin, of Life Magical. In the photographer’s own words:

Anything can happen when you’re shooting weddings. It rains on a perfect day, your equipment dies on you, the schedule has been rearranged, and most certainly, kids run around doing what they do best… having a blast! If you’re ready to roll with the punches, you can get one-of-a-kind shots which truly capture the spirit of the moment.

Urban Elegance

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Columbus (Dublin) Ohio photographer, Adam Squier, of Squier Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

This photo was taken in Downtown Columbus just outside the huge church. The car is obviously the subject here (OK, not really), and the couple was fortunate enough to be able to borrow (not rent) it for the drive to the reception.

I retouched out a traffic light that was sticking out of their heads. I tried to minimize it at the time of capture, but the angles weren’t working to my advantage. Timing for lulls in traffic was a bit tricky — this is the main thoroughfare downtown. A touch of fill flash was used, and the ever-popular lomo effect from Showit Effects was applied post-capture.

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Abhijit Bhave, a photographer from India. In the photographer’s own words:

There is this very old historic fort in Pune(India) called Sinhgad.I was here with my friends about late morning.i caught this sight at the back of a small hut on top of the fort where water was trickling down a small rope.Since there was not much light in this frame, i had to make use of reflectors which i asked my friends to hold.The light off the reflector could be seen shining on the rope.I had to wait with my camera(did not make use of a tripod) to just catch the drop in motion.i was lucky, phew…!!! The shutter speed was about 1/30 and aperture was f5.6.

Sunset Silhouette

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Florida photographer Michael J McCrystal. In the photographer’s own words:

This was an exciting engagement couple with a bit of steam. It was a bit like photographing the cover of a romance novel… I am a big fan of silhouettes at sunset. There is something magical about them.

I have been a photographer based out of the Tampa Bay Area since 1990. My work is a wide variety of commercial, editorial, wedding and portrait work. Two years ago I chose to settle down a bit and focus my energies on my love for wedding photography. It is the one area I have found in photography that demands the skills I have learned from all my other areas of photography. I love a good challenge and having a job that lets me be a part of the best days of people’s lives is a dream.
