It’s not often that a pair of feet would make it to our gallery but even if this image won’t win any awards, what it will do is tell a story. It’s important to not forget the details; and it’s something we took a long time to finally realize. We only ever focused on the couple, what they were doing, close-ups of them kissing, wide shots showing the landscape – but when putting together a blog, we really felt that something was missing and the story was very… dry.
That’s where details came in. It can be simple little things like their feet on the wet sand of the beach, it could be a close up of their hands, just their lips, the eyes – those sort of details. They help to tell a story and can act as a transition piece if need be. That’s why we took these photos of our couple here – we wanted to be able to show the viewers more than just a couple in love. We wanted to show what it felt like to have your bare feet in the sand on a Portuguese beach at sunset with the person you love most.
