Behind The Lens

This photo was taken during the wedding of a man who plays soccer with me. What you see, in addition to the bride, is the almost complete team.
It was a wonderful experience to take care of the photographic aspect of her wedding. This photo was taken around 4 p.m. on 7 September, so not yet at sunset, but with the light still fairly high, which made it difficult for me to take this picture.
As I said before, the light was a problem for me because I had to work a little hard to get the right display. If I showed the right sky, the faces would become too under exposed, on the contrary, exposing people correctly, I would show the sky above, which would become "burned" and discharge details. I opted for a middle way, correct bit in post production
This photo was shot with a Nikon D700. Lens 16-85mm, no tripod, no flash, only me and my cam!
As I said, we are a group of very close friends and I wanted to find a way to convey the "deep" sense of our friendship. Something unequivocal that would make, in fact, a simple photo, a manifest on friendship
Certainly, using Photoshop and Lightroom I had to solve the problem of the light that took over my lens. as I said before I had to make a middle ia. In post-production I slightly illuminated people, giving them a lot of structure and contrast (I liked the idea of recreating an HDR effect, to perfectly highlight their expressions. Similarly, I had to lower the brightness and contrast of the sky. With a brush, however, I left the structure and contrast of the clouds to make that sense of "frame". Translated with
In my camera bag
Now I've a fujifilm xt-20 with two lens: xf 18-55mm and xf 55-200, one flat good TT350 and a Zhiyun Smooth Q for make little video with my Note 8
I'm not anyone as a photographer, it's just a hobby despite many awards. I mainly take street photos and therefore the only advice I can give is to "open your eyes" and be amazed by what surrounds us. Once you succeed, you go back to being children and seeing things that we adults haven't seen in a long time. And just in that moment that a photograph is born.
