Wedding photographer Ben Benvie, was awarded 1st place in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
- What a fun juxtaposition as a blue-breasted peacock struts the grounds with those fanciful feathers while a woman “struts” her finest wearing those fancy blue shoes! The composition and light combine with the right angle, lens choice and depth-of-field to make the not so obvious…outrageously obvious. But, no doubt, this photo is ALSO the result of good seeing by the photographer.
- The flash of blue makes both the peacock and the shoes stand out. Great thinking by the photographer to get down low to see the peacock and including just enough of the dress to know it is a fun and not too formal of an occasion.
