Admired by Beckstead

Beckstead is the Photographer of the year for 2002 and developed a site to showcase pictures that are meant to inspire all. He choose four of my images for his site. The first of course was Desiree who was not married yet, so to link the site would have made it to easy for her fiancee' to find it so I waited. But now that she is married.... Thanks Mr Beckstead. To find his site look at http://www.admiredbybeckstead.com/?i=370. You will find much inspiring photographs and photographers. You can read his story at http://www.wpja.com/for_the_photographer/wpja_contests/general_contest_info/wedding_photographer_of_theyear/poy_2002.htm

What a cool use of a fisheye lens! How did Laura get that shot and angle? That is what I want to know. I hope she keeps it a secret!! Love the body positioning!

Different and neat composition.
