Photo of the Week – Something New – 13/November/2011

Hello there,

Each week I will post up a new photo and a little bit about it and why I like it. – I will aim to update this section each Sunday – lets see how I do.

Okay for the first photo of the week, I am going to use a photo from the wedding I shot yesterday.  The wedding was at the Stunning Old Rectory Hotel in Redditch in Worcestershire.  The Old Rectory is an amazing wedding venue that offers the photographer an almost endless choice of photo locations.

This was the first time I had shot at the The Old Rectory so I wanted to make it count, and one of the biggest features of the venue is a collection of round windows, most photographers take photos using them but from what I have seen most of the pictures were boring so I wanted to do something different.

Why I love this photo is it took around 5 minutes to make, I had tried several different things and it was just not working, but by keeping at it and plugging away, we ended up with this – the second I saw it I knew I nailed it and that was it, it was off to the next location.

As you can see I was outside when this was taken and I love the feeling of intimacy you get from this picture.

Stay tuned for more photos of the week, hope you like.
