When I saw this beautiful wedding photo by Lakshal Perera from Melbourne Australia I was speechless by the magic he has captured in this photo. Lakshal Perera shot this magical wedding photograph showing the newlywed couple in the foreground and the Milky Way floating in the night sky. The surrounding was extremely dim, allowing for a clear view of the sky. Lakshal Perera captured it in a single exposure using a Canon 5D Mark III and 16-35 f/2.8L lens at 17mm, 71 seconds of exposure, f/5.6, and ISO boosted up to 4000 (wow). It’s pure magic!
The photographer Lakshal Perera graduated from University with a PhD in Medical Radition Physics, and as a young child, all he dreamed about was being an astronaut. As an adult, all he dreams about is being a wedding photographer. So when his client Warren & Shirley in Deniliquin ask him to do photograph their wedding photo, when Lakshal took this magical wedding photo for them, both things came together for one brief moment.
