I always have a hard time choosing what type of photo to show on my blog. I have tons of photo journalistic type shots of people smiling naturally, unaware of the camera and just being themselves. I also have lots of beautiful detail shots, environmental and architectural pictures depicting the scene. I usually end up choosing the artistic, creative photographs because as an artist I find them more personally fulfilling.
The second photo of the bride is not a typical choice for me to post on my blog, but I chose it to illustrate the technical part of what I do. The formal pictures for this wedding were shot in this same location because of the lighting. As well as having photo journalistic and artistic photos, it’s important to have fundamentally sound techniques to use for formals such as these. These were created by carefully selecting a location and controlling the light. A few feet away and the look of the shot would have drastically changed.
I will always do my best to control the lighting, so I can produce photographs that are truly remarkable. Having a balance of technical knowledge and creative ability is crucial in getting amazing wedding photographs.
The last photo was taken on the front porch at Stowe Acres. A beautiful venue for weddings. Here are some of the highlights from the wedding, I hope you enjoy them.
