Today I sat down to look at the results of Filippa and Petri’s photos. I had finished editing them a few days before, but i wanted to leave them for a while so I could look at everything with a fresh perspective later.
And I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised.
This time around, I tried a slightly different point of view in my wedding photography. I only concentrated on how I saw the whole day, and tried not to think how other people saw it. It was a huge relief because I got to go so much deeper into my “own thing” than usual, without any of the usual pressure on my shoulders. I also tried a few technically new things that I had learned from Zack Arias’ book. In his book, Arias talked about an in-camera multiple exposure technique and I was eager to try it out!
One of the best things about this job is that I’m always learning new things about my field, like a kid on his first day of school! I can vision myself in ten years from now, still learning and developing myself as a wedding photographer.
As a person.
Excited and restless to share stories from my point of view.
I met Filippa and Petri earlier this summer at Mari and Simo’s wedding. When I recall back to that day, I remember how I mumbled english to them, excited about the opportunity. Thanks to Filippa and Petri’s trust in me, I was lucky enough to be there for their day.
