My name is David Alarcón and I work with Oriana Bustamante, she is my parter at work and my wife. Together we are DAVIDYORIANA. We are wedding photographers in Chile.

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.
