This image also got me to the TOP3 medalist position in World Photographic Cup. The Final color of the medal will be revealed in France, Montpellier begining of April
In my work the concept and the pre-visualization of the images are the key issues. It is all about fresh ideas and trying out to achieve something that has never been seen when tying to create original pieces of art.
Sometimes I just know that a project will evolve into something original already before I even start shooting the pictures. This time it was this couple (Vesa & Elina), who gave me pretty much free hands to do wedding photo that would be something original and different. Well, I definitely tried to push myself to create something new and different and I think I did
The soon to be married couple both sent me some ideas they had in mind. The images they sent me as a guideline were from different movies, lots of weird stuff, not definitely your typical wedding shots. I looked through the images and came up with an idea of switching the wedding theme into the world of illusion and magic, something similar weird stuff as in the dream world in the movie Inception.
Bit of location scouting and decided that I will do the images in my friends Janne´s bar Tähti, which has a really cool jazz themed section. Cool walls, red chairs, area for the band etc.
I came up with an idea to switch the perspective of things altogether. I rotated the environment totally sideways and shot one of my coolest composite shots! This image will twist your mind and also your neck
The composite has mainly three elements, the groom the bride and the enviroment. Pretty straight forward retouch, but the concept will be the the key issues to make image stand out.
