This photo is very special. My niece is the bride and she is wearing my mother’s wedding dress of 60yrs. ago. Unfortunately my Mum died just before the wedding and never got to see her granddaughter in her lovely war- time dress.

Devotees are celebrating “CHARAK” festival in West Bengal. Charak Puja is a very enchanting folk festival of the Southern Belt of Bangladesh and West Bengal. It is also known as “Nil Puja”. The believers of the Hindu religion celebrate this on the last day of Chaitra (Chaitra Songkranti).People believe that the festival will carry prosperity by eliminating the sorrow and sufferings of the previous year. The festival is actually a festival to satisfy “Lord Shiva”, the great “Debadideb” of Hindu Religion. Though the festival takes place on the mid night of Chaitra Songkranti, the preparation phase usually starts before one month of the day.

Grand Prize Winner Winner

Wedding Photography Contest #11 by Babak Aliasgharian

My photos are original and rarely edited. I try to shoot real, live
and also I care about characters.


Getting Ready – Category Winner


Just one more minute. by Mark O’Brien

Click-Clack-Photo-1024x682
This is Grace, photographed just before leaving to get married on a sunny July morning in the Loire Valley, France. The hardest part of capturing this image was getting everyone in the right place at the right time! I had this shot in my mind for a few months prior to taking it, a couple of half opportunities had arisen during other weddings but I was never happy with how it worked out… until I took this! The big secret in photography is to recognise that it’s not all about you. Yes I made sure I used a decent camera & decent glass, made sure the exposure was correct and pressed the shutter release button… but the rest was down to the lovely bride and her willing family and friends! This applies to almost every part of photography, even landscapers need the conditions to behave! If I’ve learnt only one thing as a wedding photographer, it’s the importance of creating a great relationship with my clients and making them happy!

Camera & setting:
Nikon D700, 24-70mm f2.8, SB-600 speedlight.
ISO 800
f2.8
1/60
Flash bounced and powered down 2/3 of a stop.
Bride moved near a nice big window (most importantly)!

More Power by Chris Vander Velde

Using a tripod, a 30 second exposure and a flashlight, I “light painted” this corvette on a warm & breezy summer evening in Green Bay, WI The long exposure not only allowed me to accent the car in the foreground but also to gather enough light to expose the eerie & industrial look of the power plant in the background.
