Years ago one of the judges in WPPI print competition talked about the "wow" print. The whole idea was that it simply leaves you speechless as you suck all the air out of the universe sounding like an old Hoover and just say "Wow"!
Well, meet Carey Nash and an image that yesterday morning just made me go "Wow".
Here's how Carey described it...
"As we were walking through the streets with my bride and groom this lady approached us with a cigar. It was a fantastic opportunity and has a great connection to the culture and Chloe's wedding in a foreign country."
So, what makes a "Wow Print"? In this case it's a little of everything. First, is the situation and the humor in the shot, but the more I looked at it the more I liked other things about it. For example, the lighting, the pose, the expressions and even the almost monotone feel to it. But there's another piece of this - Carey had the skill set to get it and then turn it into a signature image.
Looking to see more of Carey's work? Here's the link along with a big thanks to my FWP co-administrator, Chris Fawkes, who featured Carey in a member profile feature yesterday.
