Story

I am not a landscape photographer. Don’t get me wrong, nature can be beautiful and breathtaking but I would always choose people over stills. I like the visual aesthetics of pictures but I fall in love with an image when it moves me. This happens most of the times when I get to know the beauty of the people in the picture.

Nati and Jose are outstanding humans full of energy. They are constantly smiling, loving life and each other. This frame is so extremely peaceful to me. Every time I look at it, it takes me back to an early morning on a black sand beach where Nati and Jose were dancing on top of stone.

I wouldn’t change anything specific in this picture but I would make sure to hold the shutter down and to be able to create a gif afterwards. I would love to see the dress fly and the waves coming in.

“Jose I heard you are a breakdancer. I don’t think breakdancing on the beach would work – especially with the cloths you are wearing – but I would love you two to dance. Could I ask you to lift Nati up once she climbs on the stone. And Nati can you jump a little to make it easier for him. “
