Just a photo that I like


Being a photographer has this things. Sometimes we are looking for the little things that anybody can see, other times we have the ambition of the moment, for some reasons the movement become an obsession. Notice that I use strong words to define the photographers interest.  They are like that and I am not different. But one of the things that bring me to the camera and lens it is the possibility to achieve all that.

That is a bold wish that, sometimes, I can achieve. I see that in this photo. Because I know that the lens I had in the camera have the ability to change the reality of the shapes, but at same time telling the truth, when I looked, I saw my bride of the day being air dressed through a little mirror lay down in the bed next to me. Well, just by the eyes it was not interesting. It was raw, without some melting that wedding photographer like so much. But trough the magic eye of the lens it was completely a different thing.

Focusing the face of the bride in the mirror all the surroundings will get transformed, as if a artist, with a delirious vision, assign himself to blur all the elements of the scene and transformed them into a frame, commissioned to dress the smile at this beautiful morning bride get ready. The woven fabric become horizontal smudges that with the vertical ones incide the mirror, but behind the bride face, giving us a motion sensation as if that smile wanted to go somewhere else or being with someone else. Movement. These smile, as like all smiles does not last too much in time and this one, now, stay trough time from the right time. The moment. Maybe nobody saw it, and in that room in a beautiful get ready, for the wedding morning, it was lost forever. But the wedding photographer catch it, forever.

Of course this notices only belong from someone that like to justify, vainly, that he can do things that the others do not. Yes, they are vain but, nevertheless, make this wedding photographer very happy.
