Coming Up Roses

Photograph by Ankit Narang, National Geographic Your Shot

Your Shot member Ankit Narang photographed this couple a few days before their wedding. "It was taken at a farmhouse away from the city," Narang writes. "I went before the actual day of the shoot to explore camera angles and interesting light, and I came across this aerial angle and imagined the couple in the morning light along with the shadows of the trees."

The shadows would provide a natural vignette effect, but Narang thought something should be added to the frame to make it more interesting. "On the day of the shoot, the couple brought rose petals on their own, and my problem was solved."

This photo was recently featured in the final story of our Love Snap assignment.

Hello Ankit Narang, A fantastic shot with excellent lighting.  Very sharp and full of details.  The composition is also superb. In all your creation is excellent.  A very big like from me.

You and me, Me and you. And all those rose petals. A real life romantic shot, and in India no less! A sweet young couple on their way to a new and hopefully happy life. Nostalgia comes just looking at this indian scene taken in my homeland. Thanks, Ankit.  j.e.s.
