Shotgun Wedding by scottjamesprebble Shotgun Wedding by scottjamesprebble
Shotgun Wedding By Scott James Prebble



Description

In Autumn 1881, two in-experienced lovers had a scare
When they discovered the result of their lustful affair.
Her father condemned them to their marriage bed
By asking the question they both did dread.
As much as they could protest,
He assembled the gun, the groom, the dress.
Once all was prepared, they were wed
Under the threat of a bullet to the head.

*.* I recently discovered that I wouldn't be here if it weren't for two generations of shutgun weddings.
Great photo, makes me imagine how horrified my grandmother was after what had happened. Although, it didn't start with an affair of end happily.

Crazy eights....straight through the face.



Chopper: Look, you're not still angry at me about the leg, are you?
Neville Bartos: Nah, forget about it.
Chopper: Because I don't know if you remember, Neville, but I had that bloody shotgun pointed at your head. I reconsidered and dropped it down to your kneecap. Remember?
Neville Bartos: Forget about it. All right?
Chopper: I mean, what the bloody hell were you doing getting lippy at me with a bloody shotgun? I had a bloody loaded shotgun.
Neville Bartos: The leg is okay, all right?


I can't tell you how many times a year I pop in Chopper. I love that film...yur picture reminded me of it.

Now, this is a very different piece from you! I don't think I've seen you using this sort of texture on your images... or have I missed something? This picture really takes you back at least a hundred years! Great work.

I don't normally do this kind of thing, you're right, but the idea needed it honestly.

Oh no, I didn't mean it'd be a bad thing to do a different thing! The idea and the execution are great! Sorry for the misunderstanding. :)

I like the point of view. And how it seems like the barrel of the gun seems almost to be coming out towards the viewer.

Yes it certainly is, and the silhouet of the gunman does add that sinister feeling to the shot. (Think even in latin sinister means to the left, so sinister in both meanings of the word!!!). Great work Scott.

A most awesome shot Mr Prebble, the depth of field is great, blurred but not so that you can't make out your bride and the church. The sepia tones give it that old-fashioned feel but isn't too obvious like in other people's shots I've seen :D

I see the Jack White resemblence but the first thing I thought was Slash and the church made me think of the video to the awesome November Rain :headbang:

And where did you get the shotgun? Maybe Australia doesn't have the same laws on guns as here but I've been looking for a gun to do shots with and even replicas are hard to get.
