Wedding Day Plus Six
Our new neighbors C & P have been married now for six days. What could be more fun than to try to capture the joy of starting a life together and those wonderful early days of discovery.
On to a creative challenge this week and let's get to the core of what photography is about to a viewer - Emotion. Our photos should tell a story and evoke feelings in those who see our shots. The happiness reflected in the eyes of a child, or the look of love shared between a couple celebrating their 30th anniversary. The sheer joy of a team celebrating their latest win on the football field or even the pride of a baker showcasing their latest creation. Human emotions run deep and are varied - we can be pensive, or be battling our inner demons - deep portraits can tell compelling stories. A dog excitedly reacting to his owner coming home after a long day. A desolate, windswept expanse of landscape. Or the bright colors and lights of balloons and carnival rides at a fair. Emotions aren’t just found in the faces of people - we can find them, and feel them, in anything we see. And in anything we photograph. Take a photo with the singular idea to make someone feel the same thing you did when you pressed the shutter, whether the feeling is written on someone’s face or is in the essence of the scene itself.
