NZIPP Iris Awards 2014
Silver Awarded in Wedding Classic Category
Title: Other Side of the Block
I have been to Arrowtown a couple of times in the past and have noticed the Coachmans Hall since my first visit. This is a pretty unique looking shopping hall at Buckinghan Street (the main street in Arrowtown) providing not only shops inside the hall but a shortcut from Buckinghan Street to one of the main car park along Ramshaw Lane.
The shot was done in a very nature way. Apart from the wedding couple & my assistant at the other side of the block knew what to do and where the camera position was, no one else knew what was going on. I was expecting pedestrians walked pass between us to form the random kind of pedestrians patten as the foreground, and I did not expect what I got to be quite honest.
Big thanks to the old couples, the very first group of pedestrians, passing by the building and kept that walking distance between them. I was not hesitate at all pressed my camera's shutter to capture that symmetrical image. The man with cap looked at the kissing couple at the other side of the building created quite a bit of story as well. Right after he noticed the kissing bride and groom, he called his friends (happened they were the couple of the front) to check out, and there was no way for me to capture the very same kind of shot again. Thanks God I did not miss that split second.
