Reflections on a First Kiss
I'd like to thank Ken Kienow at the Starting a Wedding Photography Business Group for starting a contest on "best ceremony kiss" shot. It made me sit back and think how tough it is to really enter artistic choice into a situation where you have to play it utterly safe. You can't not get The Kiss. You can't come up to a couple and say, "I tried something crazy, and it didn't work, so ? no Kiss."
But trying crazy things is the entire basis of creativity. So, it hasn't been about winning or losing for me, but it's been great to poke at the edges of a very tough envelope.
