IN FOCUS

THE STORY BEHIND THE FRAME

50mm   iso 100   f2   1/4000 sec

This photograph was taken at an intimate luxury wedding in the Bodleian Library in Oxford, in the interior of the 15th century Divinity School on a at midday in a very bright day, when the light is at its harshest. At that time of the day in those sunny conditions, the windows of the Bodleian create really defined geometries of shadow and the contrast between those and the light is extreme, making it very difficult to shoot. 

I knew I had to get creative with my use of shadow and light for this shoot and incorporate this feature in my photographs.

The bride was sat alone on the dark wooden balcony looking out of one of the medieval windows and what struck me was the speckles of light and shadows which where hitting her face. I played with the angles of the adjacent opened window to reflect additional speckled light also on her dress and flowers and took this shot.

In the otherwise very monochromatic and subdued pallet of tones, the bride’s deep red lips really stood out to me, so I decided to framed the picture on camera to highlight that feature as a pop of colour leading the viewer into the frame.
