I was about to write my post for this next mehndi, when the photographer, Taimur Ali Ahmed, dropped a note in my inbox that pretty much summed up my observation of his work. I was making notes on how I felt that his pictures were taken at that beautiful point of dusk, when the light is purple-grey and orange, and mixed in with the grey of the clouds, it created a stunning backdrop for the bride and groom, who had a private photo session before heading into the hall at Casa Larga Vineyards for the mehndi festivities.
And then, he sent me this: I like to think of my style as understated glamour in a photo-journalistic style. I'm also a nature photographer. For Anila and Razwans wedding, I really wanted to capture the beauty and charm of the vineyard where the wedding was held. At one point, the sun was breaking through the clouds and made for a great shoot, capturing the chemistry between the couple on their special day.
My thoughts exactly. If you take time to look at Taimur's other work, you will find that whereever he is, at any time of day, indoors or out, he manages to find existing light, and use it to his advantage. This is a great technique for a photographer to know, and a good thing to look for in the work of anyone you are considering.
