WPPI Details

Sometimes my desire to make unique images leads me to a crazy place! When I showed up at this 2012 wedding at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York, I had no idea that just a few minutes later I’d be creating such a bizarre tableau to take a picture of the bride’s engagement ring! I took a hand mirror, a cup of champagne, and a towel over to one of the large windows in the Oheka Castle bridal suite and set up a scene. The ring was set on the mirror and my assistant gently poured some champagne onto the mirror while I photographed. I love this dynamic image so much that I chose to enter it into the Wedding Division : Wedding Details category of the WPPI 16x20 International Print Competition in 2013. I was pleased with my score of 81. I was also pleased when, later in the year, the client chose this image as one of the many images in her bridal album. It’s always lovely to see your clients value the images that you create for them!Keywords: Huntington (8), Oheka Castle (12). 1/160; f/11.0; ISO 9000; 60.0 mm.
