The charm of the portrait


I am ready.  With an open smile and happiness, because those half-open eyes do not lie, the groom is, in fact, ready to go to the ceremony place. Before, with all the affection, were helped and dressed by their mother, aunts, father, and the rest of the family. They are not in the photo but the eyes show their presence. Several times I see, in that kind of looking, the importance of the ties between the person and those that are important in the wedding day.

I,  also, recognize my great joy with the portrait. It is, without a doubt, my preferred kind of photography and not just because I can do it. It was the portrait, several years ago, the culprit of my interest in photography. Usually, the first appeal to photography comes to those occasionally objects found in the walks around, passive subjects to the learning process of composition, the direction of the light. The next step is landscape photography to give us the knowledge of space, escape lines, and perspective. But with me, it was with the portrait that I was gaining the taste for photography.

And, consequently, it was because of the portrait that I made myself a wedding photographer.  Of course, it was, also, a process through another form of photography but, I noticed when photographing people I was possessed with some special vibration. Still today.
