Wedding photographer Harri Rauhanummi, was awarded 3rd place in the Creative Portrait of Kids category for the WPJA's 2013 Q4 Contest.
I like to photograph kids as they are so genuine with their expressions. I went into sacristy just before the ceremony and saw these young flower girls full of excitement. It was a small and fairly dim lit space so I grabbed my 24/1.4 Nikkor lens because I needed that wide angle and big aperture to be able to capture this photo.
- These girls are made for this portrait. Those balloons were destined to be held by them. That wall behind them was always their backdrop. In short, all I’m saying is that everything comes together in this portrait just as it should be. It is an image carved from light as carefully as their carefully managed hair.
