You may know David Ziser from such pro photo educational venues as his popular Captured by the Light seminars and his DigitalProTalk.com blog. Ziser is also renowned, and originally renowned, for his just-right wedding and portrait photography.
At the recent PhotoPro Expo held on Super Bowl Sunday weekend in Covington, Ky., just across the river from Cincinnati, Ziser won the coveted LexJet Sunset Award, the first awarded this competition season, for his remarkable print on Sunset Photo eSatin Paper.
The image, from a recent wedding photo shoot, is entitled Can’t Take My Eyes off You. It’s an appropriate moniker for the shot, which makes the bride front and center.
As with all of Ziser’s photography, the award-winning ingredient is in the subtleties that make the photo so strong and rich. While the lighting on the bride is picture perfect, all lines point to her: the railings and fences converge naturally where the bride is posed.
While this may look fantastic digitally, the trick in competition is to translate the digital image to print. That’s why Ziser chooses Sunset Photo eSatin Paper. He says his studio uses it exclusively for all of their album printing.
“The heavier weight and wide color gamut of eSatin is exactly what I’m after in a print; I just love how that print medium presents,” says Ziser.
