My name is Stefano Fiorentin, an Italian destination photographer, based in Croatia. I started with photography while I was in my early 20's, and in time, wedding photography has become my passion. Each new wedding is a new challenge because they are all new unique, unpredictable and provide so many different stories to tell... When I photograph a wedding, I don’t use a template or an established system, I’m always finding new situations, seeing my objects from other angles and perspectives, to make my photos stand out. I look for clean lines, minimalist composition, geometry and colour, a play of light and shadow. I love to look for unforgettable moments that will long be remembered.

I was at the wedding in Zagreb, Croatia, photographing people on a dance floor, trying to capture their expressions, their dance.
I saw a very interesting light which made shadows on the wall, people's faces, on the floor. I looked down and saw guests' legs intertwined with interesting shadows reflected on the floor.

Suddenly, I was attracted with a pair of red shoes and blue colour all around, and this was the moment I saw my photograph, I just needed to put all the important elements together.

The colour of the shoes was very strong, so I wanted to give it importance, putting the red shoe in an abstract composition; I searched for a graphic using the dynamic of the shadows on the ground.

I waited for a right moment and I did my shot. Ok, I made a few shots because people were moving, but I waited for a perfect match: composition, right position of the red shoes, light, shadow direction and the reflection.

I used Canon EOS – 1D Mark III, Canon 35 mm L 1.4, 1/60 sec, f.2.8, ISO 3200,
In post production I made only few colour and contrast corrections in Photoshop.

My photographer colleagues say that this photograph is inspiring them, and newlyweds think it's very particular and unusual. And I'm very proud to hear that!
