Photographed at the Shaar ha Shomaim in Montreal this shot was taken during the Mezinka—a traditional dancing celebration that takes place when a family’s last child is married off to form a new Jewish home.
To get this shot I used a slow shutter about 1/15sec to add a sense of movement, therefore adding an emotional and celebratory touch to the overall frame.
If the whole frame was in focus then the image could be seen in a different manner and evoke another type of feeling.
My flash was affixed to a monopod on camera right and extended over the congratulating crowd and pointed towards the parents of the bride/groom; emphasizing their traditional role as parents to see their children get married.
