Some people tend to overlook the big picture when it comes to shooting a perfect photograph.

It takes time to stage the right angle, setting, and lighting. Photographers also spend hours on digital editing.

To highlight the artistry and dedication that goes into composing stunning shots, professional Brazilian photographer Gilmar Silva shows just how much work goes into capturing moments that will last forever in a series called LUGARxPHOTO ("place and photo").


Each piece in the series comprises two pictures: a behind-the-scenes look and the finished photo. The setup is just as fascinating as the picture itself.

Balloons provide an amusing element in this shot.

The photographer's house sets the scene for this romantic photo of Silva's brother and girlfriend.

Silva says that making sure the image doesn't look manipulated is a challenge. All the elements combine in this composition for a thrilling result.


He adds layers of whimsy and romance to this beautifully intimate shot.

The photographer took inspiration from a similar setup on the internet and made it his own for this wedding shoot.

It's hard to believe where Silva took this photo based on the final result. This was the first lugarxfoto shot in the series.

He is always up for a client's suggestion. Posing on top of a car is no exception.


Placing the flash behind the subject is a popular illuminating effect.

Using reflective surfaces is one of Silva's favorite techniques.


Here, he uses water to make a splash for this lively scene.

He makes playing with light and silhouette look effortless.

Silva, the star of his remarkable photography, gets the spotlight in this contemplative scene.

Capturing the essence of life isn't done with just a simple snap. Check out more of Gilmar Silva's beautiful photography on Instagram and on Facebook.
