Wedding, Bridge, Kite

_MMM2257-164 e-Edit_MMM2257-164 e-Edit As a professional wedding photographer, I occasionally get stumped to come up with composition that is creative, unique and has a spark that my clients will love; ideas that are fresh and new. When I hit a creative slump and am just not feeling inspired, I have a little trick that I think can work for anyone in almost any genre of photography to help get the ideas flowing. I think of three seemingly random unrelated objects that are accessible to me. Then, I direct my models to interact with those objects, sometimes in the most graceless of ways, without me worrying about "getting good pictures", and without over thinking the question: "Am I doing it right?". I also encourage my models to keep it playful, overdo their zeal (It's easier to bring energy and zeal down a bit if necessary than it is to reach up for it. This is why I have people "overdo it".), and not to worry about the camera or me, but just have fun and expect nothing in particular. In this photo, my objects were of course: wedding couple, kite, and bridge. We had a genuine laughing session! I think it worked out perfectly!
