THE PROVERBIAL SILVER LINING

We’ve all heard the expression “Every cloud has a silver lining”?  

This image really does, in the literal sense. Let me explain. The worst time to take photos are bright, sunny afternoons without any shade. It’s too bright. Too much contrast. Skin becomes shiny. People squint. There are lots of harsh shadows, etc, etc. 

Long story short, last week, during a shoot, my shoe went missing. The delay caused by me having to go find replacement shoes coincided with the arrival of this one massive cloud over Toronto which saved the photo. Coupled with our notable skyline, stunning sari colours and an epic pose requested by the groom (I was told its a family tradition).
