The second in the series is this one, which has made an awful lot of people laugh. So many possible captions, and a choice of narratives.
So, basically, Jen’s dress was hanging in the bathroom, I think it may have been slightly creased and the steam from the shower/bath was being used to deal with that. Anyway, I went through to get some pictures of it hanging up. I went in and took a couple of shots on the 16-35mm lens, and decided to get something a bit tighter. I went back to my back to change to my 50mm f1.4 lens, and in the minute I was gone and returned, this happened.
I had a second of moral dilemma, and thought, take the photo, then ask questions. I grabbed the shot and went back through to tell the bridal party. I asked permission to use the image and the lad’s mum was more than happy, as you can’t really see anything, but it is a truly great image which makes me laugh every time I see it. I know the family also love it, although I don’t know if the ‘wee’ fella in the photo will like it so much in ten years time.
Camera exposure for those interested: Canon 5D mk3, 50mm f1.4 lens. 1/60th @ f2.8, ISO 800
Documentary style photography – you always have to be looking for the images that will make people laugh, cry or have something to talk about for years and years to come.
