"Lost In The Moment"

"Lost In The Moment"
©David A. Ziser

I made this photograph a few years ago. The bride was just relaxing near a window. I loved what I saw through the viewfinder - the soft light, subtle tones, and gentle expression. The saturated red of the bouquet contrasted nicely with the subtle colors of the Japanese screen behind her. You can almost feel the quiet repose within the entire composition - one of my favs. Camera specs: Nikon D1x fitted with 50mm F1.4 lens, F 2.2 @ 1/320 second, ISO 800. Enjoy! -David


  1. What an impossibly perfect piece of art... I love it. Brian

  2. David,

    Great site!

    I was wondering if you would do a post on Wedding albums.
    Do you do your own designs or let a third party do it?
    What company prints your albums? What formats of printed albums do you use?

  3. Oh, wow! This image is incredible! I wholeheartedly agree with you that this image conveys the mood extremely well!

    Keep up the excellent work David.

    Thanks, Zechariah

  4. David, I have been watching your blog regularly through RSS. Excellent work! I mostly look at the composition and artistic side of your work and not get caught up in technical mumbo-jumbo. However, I noticed in this post the picture was taken by older technology. How in the world did you get such noise free results at ISO 800?



  5. Wow is right, beautiful image David, love your blog, I read it daily, thanks so much for sharing your work, and so much more, with us.



  6. David,

    Very nice photograph!

    You must spend a lot of time producing so much information for the website. I'm not sure how you fit it into your schedule.

    I was wondering if your client always want to be featured on your website?

    Keep up all the great work
