I’m fairly certain that we’re not alone when I say that dinner time is generally “break” time for us as photographers. Of course we’re always on standby and have normally been briefed as to when any speeches may happen. But for the most part, this is the period where we can relax our legs, charge our equipment, get some much needed food & drinks and prepare ourselves for the evening.
Guests also tend to not like being photogrpahed in the middle of eating too. But despite being on a break, it’s always nice to walk around and just stretch the legs a bit after they’ve calmed and seized a bit. And had I not taken a walk down towards the pool area of this Tuscan villa, I would not have noticed this spectacular site. The clouds had covered the sunset and a the light on the dinner just looked so darn cool.
We spent a bit more time on this photo while editing as we really wanted to bring a bit more empahsis to the crowd at the table as well as the light hitting the building. We wanted to create a feelign of space, a bit of grandeur but also a warm sense of comfort.
