I captured this image about a month ago during one of my urban bridal sessions. I think it has kind of an eerie feel to it (hence the title) but I think that's because of the bride's expression and my use of the super wide angle lens.
I was just playing with the compositional elements, lighting, and extreme wide angle-ness of the lens. Because of my close proximity to the subject, I introduced a slight bit of distortion to her face that added to the unusual look of the portrait.
Would this qualify as a stunning bridal portrait? On some levels, probably not. Does it still qualify as an unusual portrait? I think so. Remember, the photographic creative process is the combination of all things visual and I believe the visual elements came together for this alternative style bridal pictorial.
Quantum at 1/4 power through Zumbrella camera right.
