How does a photographer capture the love? Not only the passion shared between two young and beautiful people, because we all have seen thousands of photographs that show sexy bodies kissing on the beach with roses and candles all around them. I am talking about the feeling of caring about someone else and dedicating the life to that specific being. It may be a photograph of an old couple making out in Brooklyn, taken by some New York photographer, or it may be a war picture, where a woman hugs a dead body and cries. There is something really strong about the photographs that portray love, in its rawest state. Happy or sad, it exists and it is true. So how do you define the true love in photography?
The absolutely amazing photograph of a man named John Unger, who lulls his dog Schoep to sleep into the Lake Superior, got viral in the beginning of this year. The story behind the picture is absolutely amazing. The 19 year old dog has arthritis and trouble sleeping and John found out that the water is therapeutic for his buddy. He takes his dog, every evening to the Lake Superior and just lulls him. This picture not only lights the love a man can feel for his friend, but also an amazing feeling of the fact that there is still faith in humanity. The photographer, Stonehouse Hudson, never imagined that the moment she captured would go viral. The picture was shared and commented by thousands. People from all around the world found the picture, incredibly stunning. It is more than just a nice moment frozen forever, it is an everlasting keepsake of love.
The wedding photography is one big art that portrays and captures the love between people. It is amazing how cute humans are on pictures, when they hold hands or kiss with their love birds. You can find this amazing feeling, basically in every relationship, starting with lovers, friends and ending up with the love between a human and his dog or cat, it all looks excellent in the pictures. And it is looking so good on the photograph, because love is one of the most delicious emotions someone could ever experience. See the beauty of love in outstanding images, and never forget that there is only one happiness in life, to love and to be loved.
