The Look of....

By johnnyboy114  
More from the wedding I went to. This is the bride, who I caught with this loving look filled with pride as she turned to look at husband. I like this for the expression and feel it gives. Similar to others I did, but has a different "feel" to this. Comments and crit welcome as always....

Thanks guys!

Dave, it definitely is becoming a "style" isn't it? Not intentional, just shoot what I see I guess. But, I like it and hope others do too. Might have to have a change of direction!

Al, thats probably the biggest compliment you could give me to be honest. Thats very good of you to say....maybe there is something in what I am doing yet....always that seed of doubt in my head, but good to hear....definitely boosts the confidence about believing I ain't that! Thanks again, really appreciated!

I agree with Dave Johnny, another fine image and they all work well in B&W.

Thanks guys, lovely to hear! Darren, not done the colour versions yet! lol! But agree, they do tend to lend themselves to mono. Glad you like them!

A really natural moment captured in time. This is a wedding picture with a difference clearly taken by a person who knows what he's doing. I have seen wedding pictures by professionals that don't come up to this standard. Keep doing what your doing, your a natural. Best wishes David

A lovely moment in time, captured so well in this shot. It is natural and unposed and I'm sure the bride would be delighted with it.

Candid photography is one that I love, although don't profess to be that good!! This is up there with the best, and I hope she sees this image, as it clearly demonstrates her feelings for her man on this special day. I think your B&W simple processing adds a huge amount to this shot, and whilst sometimes we can overcomplicate our desire to process every shot, you are keeping it simple for the right reasons and letting the photograph tell its own story. Great candid work.

lol! Thanks Adrian, but unfortunately not, these were friends of ours. I just took the camera, but I did get talking to their "official" photographer, who was very nice and very helpful and hopefully she will become a good contact....many have said the same as you, so maybe there is something in this! Thanks for thinking they are so good though. Appreciated!

Definitely top class photojournalism here JB. The moment caught in time is the essence of this genre and what better example of an unposed sentiment than this? An excellent black and white.
