Wedding photographer Ben Chrisman, was awarded 2nd place in the Rehearsal Dinner category for the WPJA's 2007 Q4.
- Nice quiet moment of a child in the arms of one of the guests. I like the composition of the champagne glass and the child's expression. Quiet. Nice. Simple elegance. Glad the photographer resisted the temptation to go tighter. Negative space emphasizes the emotion. The feeling and the light to convey the feeling makes this photograph a winner. The cropping (in the camera or in the print), isolates the important information to be set forward in this image.
