Natural moments, the highs and lows, the mix of emotions that come with getting married… Rafal Borek finds the beauty and artistic composition in all of it, especially the moments that unfold naturally. “Over the past three years, I’ve pushed myself to make the portrait element natural with as little direction as possible,” he says.  With black-and-white imagery being his first love and the mirrorless camera taking over the industry, he says he took advantage of the monochrome viewfinder, to minimize any distraction while composing an image, and it makes him even more sensitive to the importance of light in photography.
