Aussie photographer takes wedding photos through the eyes of guests

Self-taught photographer Peter Adams-Shawn is wowing us this week with an incredible method called ‘Eyescapes’. Gone are the traditional wedding photos in his portfolio. For ‘Eyescapes’ Adams-Shawn captures the reflections in the eyes of guests.

There’s no trickery involved in his work, either — he simply needs to get as close as possible to wedding guests to be able to see a beautiful reflection in their eyes. That’s so neat!

‘One other secret – the best frames I’ve captured have had the subject smiling. This relaxes the shot, brings natural creases in the eyes, and even this close, you can tell the subject is smiling’, Adams-Shawn said in an interview with our network site Techly.

‘I did my first eyescape back in 2011. It was then not until 2014 that I got to do the second one. Something clicked as to how I could take them. Now I do them pretty much every wedding’, Adams-Shawn told A Plus.
