By original intention was to do a "Top 10" for 2010 but I soon realized that it would be imposable to do. Since I take on such a large variety of gigs from weddings to Bar Mitzvah's and beyond, it's not really realistic to make those images compete against each other. I mean, a really great picture of shoes is a really great picture but it can't compete agains a baby or a bride. Still, it deserved recognition. I may spend most of my time as a wedding photographer but that doesn't mean that's all I do.
So, instead of a "Top 10," I've decided to simply pick the best images by category. Some of the categories will be serious, some not so much. :)
So, without further adieu, here's the first category:
Best Bar/Bat Mitzvah Temple picture
This image was taken at Temple Beth-El in St. Petersburg FL. It's a beautiful temple and it's the only one I have ever worked in where I felt there was room to take a shot like this with the subjects sitting on the steps.
Best Dance Picture
I love everything about this image. The pose is perfect and the background light was reflecting off the white vinyl just enough to give me a little kicker light on the model's face.
Best Special Assignment Picture
A "special assignment" is something outside of the norm. Like when I get asked to shoot a company or in the case of this photograph, a school play.
I'll post "part 2" soon and we'll start looking at wedding images. Stay tuned!
