This wedding photograph taken at The Church of St Michael and All Angel’s, Summertown is in some ways very similar to the picture I posted a few weeks back in this series.
It is, essentially, taken from the same spot but with a few critical differences.
As a professional wedding photographer its so important to shoot with equipment you can rely on, but its also really important to give yourself options for different views or perspectives by being able to shoot with different lenses.
In this case of this picture shot at Jenni and Janke’s wedding at The Church of St Michael and All Angel’s, Summertown I really wanted to capture the grandeur of the church and the solemnity of the moment during the blessing too.
The other image I posted, titled “The Diving Light” was about creating something out of the magnificent light that was falling on them at the time.
Whereas that picture was shot horizontally, with a short lens, this one below is shot vertically, with a longer lens.
I really love both of the images, but by carrying two cameras with me, loaded with two different lenses, I was able to essentially get two very different perspectives of the same view at The Church of St Michael and All Angel’s, Summertown during the really lovely wedding celebration.
For the photographers out there, this image is actually a five shot vertical panorama. That probably means nothing to most people, but in essence, it means I took five overlapping photographs and stitched them together to create a much larger image.
I really love it, and I hope you do too. Please, as always, feel free to share or comment below….
