Often when I'm shooting a wedding photo at Big Sky Resort I am also looking for other elements to make the photo more interesting. Sometimes that might be a human doing something opposite of my main subject, it could be a sign with funny words, or, like in this case, it could be a white mountain goat contrasting against the bride. In this image I am drawn to the two white objects, both looking in the same direction. One is struggling, one is dead.
Compositions like this are fun for me because they bring a little complexity to a composition. I love when the viewer (me) has to stop and pause at a photo to take it all in. I do think there is a place for a 'quick read' photo that is immediately clear with its purpose, but I usually preferred layered photos that require a little thought.
