WHAT IS COLOR to THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Color, that thing that can be object of fascination to the wedding photographer or a big complication. I have been here several times writing about my relationship with colors and photography. I am a bit of extremes, it can lead me to peaks of excitement or those little stones in the shoes that ruin completely our balance when walking. Harmony. That is the right word when we talk about photography and, specially, about color.
Whatever the subject, wedding, fashion or architecture, one photo to be considered as good as it can must contain, internally, a harmony, a balance inside, and, at the same time, tell the story to tell. In my modest opinion, not always the color, better, the colors do behave inside a photo to assure that balance. I used to say that colors are jealous each other and there is always one that, because a bad temper, try to unbalance the harmony of the shapes that, by the wisdom of the photographer, did everything right.
But when the wedding photographer detect that one, with everything in place, his heart start to beat like a drum in the drummer solo, and he does not rest until picked up and, proudly, will show her with all the splendor. Photograph is an act of emotion based in knowledge. There is a learning curve that teach how to find them and bring them, which is far from the simples, and modest, fact of being wedding photographer.
