The story behind the image

Show more
This image was created in a couple’s photographic editorial where the biggest challenge we had was to try to convey a message of diversity to our city’s wedding market, showing new visual and structural possibilities for a wedding for two.

Describe how you spoke to your subject(s)

In this photo, I asked the couple to position the bouquet in front of their faces so that they hide behind the flowers. I asked them to hold hands while they were doing it and stand in a frontal position facing me.

What did you say?

Okay boys now face me, hold hands and hide your face behind the bouquet to cover your face.

I tried to center the couple exactly in the middle of my frame and made a more open plan in the image in order to convey a feeling of amplitude. I was concerned to make sure that the arm of the two that is covering the face would not be cut by the horizon line, thus bringing a division to the image

In this specific image, the focus was the least of my worries because I wanted to bring contrasts between the still subject and the camera movement I made to create this effect of low-speed movement.

Light & Weather

We had a very cloudy day, so the light was very diffused and the sun didn’t actually come out. With that, the photo in terms of light was made with a very neutral light which in a way helped to make the image more focused because of the effect I was aiming to create.

Editing Workflow

How did you edit this image?

The photo came out of the camera a little overexposed and that’s why in post-production after applying my preset I made the exposure correction adjustments by approximately 2 points.
I tried to darken the image a little more to get more details as a whole since it was made without the focus set on purpose.

The biggest challenge for this image was to create the movement I wanted in the camera with the couple remaining still to bring that feeling of static / movement. I had to redo the image a few times to get the result I wanted because in some moments the movements I made were very fast and lost information in the photo, in others they were very slow and didn’t bring the effect I wanted.
Finding that balance was the hardest.

The solution to this was trial and error, adjusting the speed and moderating my movements.

I believe that the most important thing when we have an idea for an image is to really insist on what we want until we get it done.

Pursuing simplicity and a clean frame can have a greater impact than we imagine, especially when we have a light condition where we don’t have such a large volume generated by natural light.
