Self-taught Australia-based photographer Peter Adams-Shawn has made a name for himself by capturing the reflections in wedding guests’ eyes. He took his first “eyescape” in 2011, and has been taking them consistently since 2014.
His work is so unbelievable that the head International Loupe Awards judge apologized to Adams for thinking it was a composite.
“One other secret – the best frames I’ve captured have had the subject smiling,” writes Adams-Shawn. “This relaxes the shot, brings natural creases in the eyes, and even this close, you can tell the subject is smiling.”
In 2011, he was playing with reflections and captured his first “eyescape” of a young flower girl watching the bride do her hair
