This was an image taken as the bride walked from the wedding car to the church for the wedding ceremony. It started to rain just as she arrived, and quickly the umbrellas came out.
Wedding Photographer Santiago, Chile. David Alarcón shares a wedding photography technique.
This time it was a very different surroundings for me because I'd never been in that place before. I searched the Internet information about the place and checked images of others photographers to avoid doing similar images. This is an exercise that I frequently do with the purpose of showing different and unique work to others. All the images that I saw from that place were from the bottom to the top . So I decided to make an image from top to bottom. It was not an easy task because I also wanted to do an interesting and vertiginous angle that shows the huge and deep scenery. So when it was the time I set my camera in manual mode and adjusted ISO, speed, framing and I set my camera in continuous shooting and I asked the bride that once inside the elevator she looked through the glass. Happily everything went perfect and I could captured the image that I was looking for.
