THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FINDS THE PORTRAIT
It is not the first time I assume, here, that the portrait is the base of my wedding day photographic cover. In fact, I remember, in the first moments with a camera in my eyes, my lenses felt more satisfied when pointed to a human face instead of a valley or a mountain. My landscape always was the human face or the body framed in a more large composition.
I acknowledge that I feel better if that portrait is made without direction. The face is there and I see if it is ready to do the path through my lens until, today, a sensor that all stops and shows after. If so, I profit. I like to direct the portrait but I think it is always better if picked up from action, at the right moment.
As a wedding photographer, I come across, during the day, the attention calls to a portrait moment that I try not to fail. Even today, I can not decide if I like to photograph weddings because they all process, or because of my never-ending search for the portrait that I am always finding for. Meanwhile, I just pick them.
