THERE ARE NO BLANK PHOTOS by THE PORTUGAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Discovering photos, that happen during the wedding day, has a significant advantage over the computer keyboard, where the letters are all scrambled and each one is needed to complete the words to make phrases that complete periods with the commas, the dots, and everything. The photographs are just there. It is only needed to know how to find themes and pick them up. Of course, it is required some natural skills to do it, with some learning how to make them fly away through the lenses, that never tired to chase them. Still, the wedding photographer does not need to have the anguish of the artist that paints or the writer that writes, without a single sign of how to begin the process.
Never, in my wedding photographer days, I had to worry about the lack of photos, the lack of themes, the kind, if portrait or architectural, if it is still life, or that runners that think that I never catch them, because everything is there. It is only needed to learn how the framing works, guess the right moment for the pick-up, and have some taste for the composition, so they look beautiful. They, the photos, never stop to appear to me, and, so, I never have that blank sheet or canvas.
But, to be seated here, finding five hundred words, they say that is good for the interested reader and do not bother him, because it is not a page of literature, it is simply a wedding photographer talking about himself, his vanities, his joys and, always about of what, without them, he would not be, nor would it make any sense to be writing whatever it was, the photographs. The photos he sees when the bride is becoming a bride or groom, the flowers she takes and embellishes where she goes, the altars through which they metamorphose from engaged to married and there, where everybody enjoys, dances, eats, and drinks until they get tired and go home, knowing that they spilled some liquids but, fundamentally, a lot of love.
Despite the wedding photographer arriving home barely able to support himself on the heels, it did not cost him anything. But, being here looking at the photos for today’s post, together or single, and having one, even a small one, an idea that he never repeated before, it is a wedding thing and he can not write about another thing than weddings being photographed, it is not easy for someone who is a photographer rather than a writer…But, look, it seems that it is done, this one is ready to go. The next one may be easier to write and find a more profound theme than the lack of imagination in the wedding photographer...for writing.
