I'm glade you have chosen my photo as one of the best to feature in your magazine!

I'm a Italian photographer based in Catania. I love to travel, explore new places and capture the beauty of these places with my pictures. Enkant Imagery is a group of friends, professionals of video and photography.

For wedding shootings I use Nikon D700/D600 (I love the 12mpx of D700 even if it is an old camera) with prime lenses, such as 50mm/85mm, and super wide angles, 16-28mm (mounted on D600 for more details). Also, I love to work in the wedding industry because it gives me the chance to make that day unique by catching the most magical moments with my camera.

This is what I tried to achieve in the image, a unique shot and my own vision/perspective. Capturing the bride though the car window. The wedding ceremony had finishes and the bride was leaving the church. I didn't want to get the standard type of shot of her getting in the car so I was around the other side. The brides dad had opened the door to travel with her to the reception location and I quickly made this shot. I shot this picture in Catania (Sicily) with a D700 and a 50mm 1,4 sigma (at f2,2). I metered to underexpose the subject creating this silhouette using the natural light, then I made some little correction with Adobe Lightroom (contrast, saturation, clarity, sharpening). I believe the use of this technique is very important to create a special ambiance of the moment.

The bride and groom were surprised with the final result, but they loved it and even asked me for a big frame of that image.
