Miami, FL (PressExposure) May 05, 2012 -- Erik Esparza from Ezekiel e. Photography has noticed a disturbing trend in recent years. Many photographers are using filters over their images to give them a vintage or retro look. Much of it can look beautiful, but he believes much of it is also used to help disguise poor photography. Erik feels that the filters take away the sense of the moment and present an image that alters the special day.
To Erik, any married couple can look at their wedding pictures and be brought back to that special day and remember just how it was. The recent practice in using vintage filters is reminiscent of an inexpensive cell phone app like Instagram, that add vintage looks to pictures taken on cell phones. It truly is an amazing feature for a cell phone camera, but maybe not for a special wedding day.
Ezekiel e. Photography sticks to the idea that wedding photography is timeless and shouldn't be made to appear older. It should capture a favorite moment in time for one loving couple and be able to transport them back just as they remember it. Erik is taking a stand to bring class back into wedding photography by saying "why recreate photographs from the past when history will create classics out of today'scontemporary photography".
The Miami based photographers of Ezekiel e. Photography are removing the fluff from "today's" trendy Instagramatic wedding photography.
Much of what has made its way into the sacred art of wedding photography is a style that resembles that of a camera filter cell phone app.
This so called photography bypasses the contemporary "present moment" with images that place a heavy emphases on lower a standard of photography with little relevance to the professional photographic abilities of today.
Ezekiel e. wants their clients to relive a favorite moment in time. What will vintage look like in 35 years?
Contemporary wedding photography can only embrace the moment in which it was captured, created to retell its story for years to come.
