But the video personnel from
I liked the shot as it clearly tells the calm and emotional feel of the couple when they close their eyes in a prayer. The clear profile of the couple with glowing edges defined their purpose; and the light through the wedding bouquet made it even better. Though the picture looked very silent, it spoke a loud about my professional approach. Many times I find less is more than required..! Yes, less light here made the picture more than beautiful! Though I had to open the lens aperture in full to get the correct exposure, the resulting shallow depth of field made a special impact on the appearance of the groom in the picture. Events like weddings contain lot of moods and the available light makes it perfect in a photo journalistic style of wedding photography.
This particular wedding photo book contained lot of images like this and I must thank my ‘unknown friend’ who lit for these pictures freely with his video light.
