THE UNPREDICTABLE MOMENT IN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
There are many ways to approach a photographic subject. That is what made each photographer a singular view, in the way he shows the world that he tries to represent in photos. However, that is not the subject today.
One of the things that make me so much pleasure, when I photograph a wedding is to spot each scene the angle of view, the right choice of lens, and the moment to trigger the camera. That is what makes a photo more than just one simple caption of the moment.
However, there is another kind of approach that makes me rejoice sometimes because of the high degree of impressibility. I am talking about those happenings so fast that we do not have even time to react with the elements necessary to provide a great photo, the light conditions with unfriendly behavior from the cameras, or those moments when the right time to shoot is essential to have a great photo or just send them to the bucket trash of the computer with no fame or glory. When I find one of them I love it so much because they make smiling the wedding photographer curious eyes.
I believe that is one of them.
