Contre-jour

Earlier this week I spotted this picture on the ‘geek’s Flickr stream, but, as ever when looking at photos by Proper Photographers, felt silly leaving a comment that’d boil down to ‘wow, this is great’, especially as it’s from someone’s wedding.

Aside from the beautiful moment, it’s a hell of a shot to pull off technically. Exposing for any of a dozen areas in that room would have resulted in lost detail. I guess knowledge and experience combine in the necessary split second, and I’m full of admiration. I confess I did unconsciously click ‘more properties’ to view the EXIF data. Oops 🙂

He’s now featured the shot on his wedding photography blog, so I’ll comment here. Wow. It is great.
