Story

The frame shown in the photo is placed in the old church. It is a remnant of an old painting. Unfortunately, the original painting was destroyed, but by taking this photo, I wanted to touch it with life, and give it a different character.

However, a portrait in a beautiful frame alone would not be enough, so I asked a couple to start dancing. I used a long exposure time to get the effect of fleeting and passing time. The photo was taken several times to achieve this blur. The only thing I would change about this photo is a different blur of the bride.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time. It was the couple’s wedding day. And their wedding was to be held in another city in 1 hour.

“Please come upstairs, I will take a picture of you in this frame. You will look like you’re from the picture. Please take off your coat and show me the dress. I know you can do it. Now dance in the middle of the frame. It will be a beautiful photo.”
