Shoot-throughs. We spent a week on this subject a little while back. The power of the shoot-through is such that it’s a ‘trick’ I revert to often and for good reason. Photographing through objects, in this case foliage, is way of layering your pictures. Without the method, this picture could be reasonably flat. I’m happy that the couple have been captured sharing a private exchange post their ‘I wills’ but this layered nature brings a three-dimensional feel that doesn’t exist minus some timely positioned ferns.
Shot data: focal length 85mm, f2.8, 1/160, ISO 100, over-exposed by a stop
