There are some images you make that you just know are impactful the moment you depress the shutter button. And whilst it may not be a high emotion picture, there’s an intensity that feels palpable. This week’s theme has been ‘under a watchful eye,’ and I think this photograph of a bridesmaid captivated by her auntie sharing vows fits the theme well. I talk often about photographing through the gap, or finding the gap. If you can capture context, that marries well when working to make a wedding story. The bride and her father vignette this picture providing the context.
