My name is Luigi Rota. I've been a wedding photographer for many years working in Italy. I have always been fascinated by photography and the study of photography through various courses and books.

I currently teach many workshops in photography and for the Nikon school.

My style of photography is reportage capturing the natural flow and emotions of a wedding day, using a Nikon D4 and available light. Working with natural light is quite difficult, it takes a lot of experience to be able to control it properly.

This image was taken at ISO 3200 at 1/60s f2.8.

I try to capture every subject in their natural environment and state. I used spot metering and adjusted the camera settings to get total control over the shot. I observe the subjects in a room and wait for the best lighting conditions and at that moment I take a series of shots in continuous mode and choose the best shot in post.

It is very important to me to be able to apply my own interpretation of a shot in post production. I love this picture because of its naturalness and the emotion captured is also a key part. This is the dad embracing his daughter as she leaves the church with her husband.

For this type of Image I often use black and white with low contrast and very soft light, like an old photograph. I feel there is a greater power of emotion in this moment, so I always try to experiment to bring out its best. I feel that this image is a strong representation of my style at this current stage.
