Within the world of wedding photography, professionals are constantly innovating -- think drones, GIFs and smoke bombs. Self-taught Australian photographer Peter Adams-Shawn is doing just that with wedding band reflection photos he calls "ringscapes."
"Ringscapes" consist of a wedding scene captured in the reflection of the bride or groom's wedding band.
"It wasn’t really a case of deciding to do them," Adams-Shawn told The Huffington Post. "It was a case of seeing a shot and taking it. Then seeing something similar again and shooting that, too."
"The first 'eyescape' came as a result of taking a shot of a flower girl having her makeup done," Adams-Shawn said. "I saw a reflection of the bride in her eye and took the shot."
The idea for ring reflections came just as organically. In 2012, Adams-Shawn had grabbed a bride and groom's rings to get a photo, when he noticed a reflection.
"I placed the rings on the railing in a gazebo whilst the bride and groom were cuddling to stay warm behind me," Adams-Shawn said. "When I set the rings down, I saw the reflection. I quickly grabbed a flash and took the shot. After that I was always on the lookout for opportunities with rings."
Getting a simple reflection shot isn't particularly complicated, Adams-Shawn said.
"Getting a reflection is relatively easy. Getting a meaningful one that tells a story is for me, at least, where the real magic lies," he said.
But how does he do it?
"I see a reflection, I photograph it," Adams-Shawn said. "I don’t fully understand the intricacies or technicalities of what is going on, but quite frankly I don’t really care. Wedding photography is about the pictures -- the memories."
