The portrait

 Aloud me to repeat some photos from the last post, but they are a nice support for the following ideas. In conversation with a friend which is also a wedding photographer, I remember telling him that I feel myself, during the wedding day cover, and even if the method I chose it is what we can call wedding photojournalism, always doing portrait as with individual actor or as a group.

There is a word used in the world of wedding photography to show the caption of something in a very limited time lapse, impossible to repeat which will become very important to the viewer: moment. It is used by those that capture it and, also, by those that watch the result in the form of a photo. That moment is exterior to the wedding photographer which with technical  skills, visualization training and fast reaction can transform, with that capture with the crucial elements to become a photo, a glimpse of something important for a future reminder: circunstancial framing, composition, texture for the dramatic interpretation and, finally, direct the eye of the viewer , always, in the printed paper.

When wedding photographer and using the method of the photojournalism I am in struggle with the change and evolution in the space and time of everything that surround me. The bride in the get ready, the ceremony with the symbolic moments or the chaotic and uncontrollable dance space,  when transformed in photo must have inside all the elements in the last paragraph. That is the goal, every time, of the wedding photographer.
