Last week I shared a picture of one of my favourite props – a pair of sparkly bunny ears. This week you get to see them in action. As I said last week, props can easily change the whole feeling of a picture. A wedding includes lots of props – the pretty dress, the bouquet, the veil, the shoes, the rings – lots of little (or not so little) details that don’t necessarily form part of a person’s every day life but which give us an insight into who they are and what’s going on. They’re the little cues that let us build a story from a picture. A portrait benefits from props in exactly the same way. They add detail, and can provide a touch of theatre and drama, giving the story a twist that makes it that little bit more intriguing.
