Wedding Photographer Brazil. Edgar Machado shares a wedding photography technique.
I used a mirror as the proposal to double the trees and their removal.
As wedding photographer used the couple in a minimalist way to show the importance of nature juxtaposed with mankind. This photo is proof we must push to the maximum to create great pictures. I had a beautiful sunset photo on the right side and planned to do the picture in golden hour and use a mirror to get a beautiful reflection.
We weren't prepared for the fury of cows that were grazing on the spot. They came towards us and we had to rush out to avoid problems and getting hurt. I almost give up when I looked at the spectacular sky and saw these beautiful colors, so I had no doubts about getting the shot I wanted.
I went up to the cows screaming and making signs with arms and they decided to eventually leave. After that, I could take time to take the picture. I needed agility to take this picture holding the mirror and get a good framework. At the top right it's possible to see them quietly watching the photo shoot. Concept, courage and luck made me get this beautiful picture.
