Wedding photographer Chris Shum, was awarded 6th place for photo 943726 in the Silhouettes / Shadows and Good Light category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
- Another example of looking around a situation that is common to weddings and seeing it from an uncommon perspective. The tilted horizon may add a feeling of energy to the image but I don't think it is necessary.
The WPJA contest judges presented Chris Shum, a California, United States wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
