    I have been photographing professionally for over 20 years and specialize in wedding, portrait, fashion and boudoir photography. If you were to ask me today (January 2013) what my own favorite photograph is, I would tell you that it is was the image featured in this video. It represents everything I love in a photograph: beauty, symmetry, strong composition, rich tones, beautiful lighting, symbolism, etc. This image was created at a real wedding, the wedding of John and Monika in December 2011. The image is a metaphor of an angel sleeping on a cloud at the pearly gates. There are strong symbols and triangles that are recognizable and consciously or sub consciously pleasing to the eye, namely the omega sign and the keyhole shape. When you have been shooting for as long as I have, you sometimes wonder if your best shots are behind you. This photo reminds me that the elusive iconic "wow" photo that all photographers strive for is worth fighting for. My best photo is in my future, but for now this will do. Camera: Nikon D3 Lens: 14-24mm f2.8 Focal Length: 14mm Shutter Speed: 1/125 sec Aperture: f3.5 ISO: 640 White Balance: Daylight Light Source: Window and Ambient Light The complete video of this wedding will be featured in upcoming chapters of my educational web site, the Ice Society. www.icesociety.com
