I'm Samuele, Sam to my friends; class 1977, I've followed in my fathers footsteps. I grew up with rolls, lens and cameras in the little photography studio of my parents. 40 years
Wedding Photographer Tuscany, Italy. Fortunato Caracciolo shares a wedding photography technique.
'Which is the best photo you've ever done'?
My answer is always the same: 'the one I will take tomorrow'.
I'm always looking for something that pushes me to do this wonderful job and makes me love it with all my soul.
It gives me endless joy to think that every time I take a picture it's like I can 'stop time', I can give a bit of my feelings, my soul and my thoughts. But mostly I like to think that I do the best job in the world!
The photograph is a state of mind. To be lived
intensely, it must be lived with passion. After all, the big picture is nothing more than this: my soul, my hopes!
This shot was made at the end of the ceremony in a beautiful place by the sea.
We were in the archaeological park of Capocolonna in South of Italy. We were taking a walk with the couple and a group of friends. Suddenly the bride began to play with her friends to throw their bouquet into the air.
The light was great, the sublime sunset. I just told them to move beyond towards, in my opinion, where the light was better.
The only difficulty was in the sunset that was too low because of the late hour so I had to lie down on the floor, I set the shutter speed of my D810 on CH (continuous high speed) et voila, the shot was done .
Immediately after shooting I showed it to them and they hugged me strong and said thank you very much.
For this photos I used Nikon D810, with 35mm 1,4, ISO 64, 1/400 - f.5,0. For post production I used the Software Lightroom and Photoshop
