Photographing a moment

This is a very simple photograph to take as all you have to do is step away from the bride and groom and take it. I like this scene because it shows the couple with the church and it will also show the moment when they are leaving as a married couple.

The photo on the left is the standard colour version and all that I have done is to crop into a 3:2 format which is a common proportion for enlargements. On the right I have just added a small vignette and changed it to sepia which was a technique that was often used in Victorian times, It gives the photo some character. The changes tell you immediately that something has been done and it also makes you think that the photo was taken years ago - especially when the bride and groom are dressed for the part.

Happy snapping
