The power of stills photography

Category : Various · (45) Comments July 12, 2010

It’s amazing how a photograph can have the power to take you back to a time and a feeling. This photo of Natalie and Eoin Gillen getting married still makes me come over all sentimental. It’s partly because they look so happy and there is such a sense of momentum and romance about it. Natalie looks ecstatic, and very beautiful. I love that her friends are gathered around her and smiling as she moves forward. Part of the magic of the photo is personal: I inadvertently photographed my boyfriend (top left) before we had ever met, so the camera saw him before I did. To me it is proof of the power of photography, and a reminder of how important it is to have a good professional photographer at your wedding.

Contrast that with video. I have a video of my eighteenth birthday party, which is very entertaining to watch, but the annoying thing about it is that I can’t remember much about the event outsides of the video. Plus, I never actually sit down and look at the video. I don’t even have a video recorder anymore! I wish I had some decent pictures of me looking young and eighteen! Video simply cannot evoke the feelings of a good still, and you cannot hang a video on your wall to give you split second reminders of happy times. As one bride put it, ‘I see my wedding photographs on the mantelpiece and it reminds me of that happy day and of why I got married, through the good times and the difficult. It is my most treasured possession.’ It’s a wonderful feeling to know that I took that picture for her.

Later that evening David and I got talking and we’ve been dating for nine months now…

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

Excellent blog! I genuinely love how it’ s easy on my eyes and also the details are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which should do the trick! Have a nice day!

    TGGP:This blog once claimed to be grabbing some of the far right side of the bell curve.At certain points, it did manage to attract some formidable minds. Some of the best posts I read in the UR archives also have comment sections full of razor-sharp insights. Even in one of his recent posts, MM claimed that his primary goal is to maximize the quality of minds in his audience. However, the recent changes for worse in his writing style and general attitude are unsurprisingly driving off the cream of his readership (and possibly many others as well).

    Look, I’m all for free speech, but we need to institute a system for shunning the shit out of people who make us look bad.I don’t know, maybe make it legal to throw things at them.

    I think what Spider did for tattoo advertising in NYC is great. After going to jail once he still stood up for what he believed in, and NYC is now a hotbed for great tattooists. Sometimes the pioneers aren’t appreciated until they’re gone, but luckily this isn’t the case with Spider. Nice write up on a great artist.
