The wedding photographer improvise

 THE RIGHT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHY

By personality, I do not like the things to much scheduled. Once up a time, the day by day in my profession was looking for drawings and make them photos. It was need to be very look a like. It was with some interest because I needed  to have the ability to light the lights, soft or hard, from left or the right, mask reflections or make them bring the object of the photo, etc.

My problem was that did not leave not so much to my imagination and does not give me that space from the Portuguese nature: improvisation. Not so much works gave  me the opportunity of to see, react and resolve. That was why that kind of living from photography was, no more, a great pleasure. It was just a job. Some things, life and the world appointed me,  in the right moment, to a wedding. By mere chance. And how I improvised. In that day, better, some days after, because I did not knew what was happening to me in that day, I decided, as a irrevocable order, to be a wedding photographer from that day on. I had, in the front of me, without a draw, the choice of decide which perspective, angle or distance to the best solution for the capture of the moment, in the front os my eyes.

But do not think that it is chaotic. Far away from that. And it is not possible to be. But it is exactly that organized freedom of choice that give me all the energy necessary from the first click of the day of the wedding,  and make me, at end,  feel with the mission accomplished. The photo from Maria could not exist. Maria act, the wedding photographer reacted and the photo happened. Improvisation.
