Photographer's Note

I was leaving an photographic exhibition and intended to go to the Bordeaux water mirror when I heard a guitar play. There was a big crowd at the doors of a church, many women waving fans, and of course many well dressed persons. It was a spanish wedding, and the bride started to dance with another woman in a round of people, many of them taking pictures. As I was not part of this event, I stayed at the rear and elevated my camera with the widest angle lens above the heads and without viewing what I aimed (no back mobile screen on my camera) pulled the trigger.

The result is not completly satisfying, the sharpness (automatic focusing) is on the bold head of the front photographer who hides part of the dancers, the DOF is too small to get the people sharp enough (down), but I get a live happy moment memory with the crowd taking photographs (one is more attracted by the guitar player!) and encouranging this couple (up).

What do you think? Have you taken pictures in this way?
