ONCE MORE , THE PORTRAIT by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Two moments from the same wedding. The first one it is a formal wedding photo from the groom, once ready, photographed at a dark background, using the chiaroescuro method used since the renaissance by the painters, which aloud the light direct our eyes to the place we want, here Diogo face very well dressed with is sailor outfit. We have, even if with little detail, the background that show us were the photo was taken. First we look the Diogo face and only after the other elements. As it should be.
In the second photo we have Sónia at the moment she enter in the car, after the ceremony and on the going to the celebration place. Here there were no absolute control from the photographer. Instead the formal aspect of the groom, we have a glowing smile bride to everybody but not the wedding photographer. In the same way, some technics are used: a point of view through the car structure, it was used a lens that unfocus everything but the bride, the unfocused parts of the car built a succession of horizontal and vertical elements to frame the face and give this powerful view.
During all day the wedding photographer will found countless situations, which he must decide in real time. Those photos are, at the end and with the all, the story of the day. With pleasure.
