Wedding photographer Emin Kuliyev, was awarded 7th place for photo 1273156 in the Other Vendors category for the WPJA's 2013 Q4 Contest.
- Stunning image and great use of shadow and light. When you can incorporate the bride AND an abstract performance shot, you have a winner. Good "seeing".
- I worked under the direction of a gifted, yet difficult and demanding director of photography for more than a decade. I remember his edict that sillhouettes or signage in the back or foreground of an image must have a specific reason for being. If not, such things become a useless distracting appendage that hemorrhage a moment in an image. But here we find an illustration of my former boss’ wisdom - a silhouette that speaks to the moment and tells a story pertinent to the day. What a lovely image.
