Bringing the Why I Love series back to life this morning I wanted to quickly talk about this image from Natasha and Andy’s wedding that I shot a few weeks back.
“Chimping” in the industry, is when the photographer checks the image on the back of the camera. We all chimp to a certain extent, some less than others. Of course, in the days of film you couldn’t chimp but times are different now. I chimp a lot less than five years ago, but perhaps still a little too much when I use my DSLRs.
One of the benefits of working with the Fuji systems is you can chimp directly in the viewfinder if you so wish and I sometimes turn the image review on at the beginning of a session (say the drinks reception) just to make sure exposures are OK etc.
When this picture popped up in front of me I immediately knew it would be a candidate for the Why I Love series. Why? Because I love it of course but because I could see the very close bond that Andy (central in the frame) had with his friends. They were very close, and they simply had a great time at the wedding. Which makes my job very easy.
Mates….being, well, mates. Lovely
