LET’S GO by the SINTRA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Not always, in the place where the wedding party takes place, I can find good solutions to photograph the session, with the couple on the wedding day. I learned, with my time as a wedding photographer, that I need the right hour and a friendly place so that people, not used to letting themselves fly away as light through the lens, until the bottom of a photographic camera, can do it with joy and surrender.
We can never do a portrait against the photographed. As much as the wedding photographer knows how to use their cameras, and find the best lens for the result he wants he will never succeed if he does not have the photographed completely committed, to what they are doing. Whether to fake a situation, like characters from a movie premiering one of these days, whether to show that they are completely committed to each other, be so that the happiness of the wedding day, exactly, enter in the sensor of my camera or, also, those photographing moments were full of joy until they come back to the company of their guests.
So, before it is time to go, the wedding photographer must, when he finds some moments, search for places where, using his imagination, he anticipates all the points of view for photos, poses, and combinations. There, is good. Here? No. Look there, near the wall, fantastic…Photographing without a camera and no lens is a wonderful exercise that I like very much to do and very useful, in the session with the wedding couple. But, almost always, it happens that, in the real session, nothing will be like that, but that is the main reason and at the right time, I point to my couple and…let’s go, it is time. And it is a joy, on both sides, as they told me.
Assim, antes do vamos que é hora, o fotógrafo no casamento deverá, quando se puder escapar por uns momentos, procurar os locais onde, pela imaginação que lhe não falta, antecipará todas as tomas fotográficas, poses e combinações . Ali, sim aqui, não, olha ali deve ser bom para…Fotografar sem máquina e sem objecto é um dos exercícios que mais gosto de fazer e que me são muito úteis na sessão com o casal. Acontece, quase sempre, que nada do que antecipei vai acontecer, mas é isso que me dá a principal razão de querer àquela hora apontar para o casal e…vamos, está na hora. E é um gozo, de ambas as partes, dizem-me.
