When it comes to photography – and whether you like it or not – editing is a major, major factor. Whether that’s tips about Lightroom usage, dodging and burning, cropping, black-and-white conversions or more, it’s all so useful to know about, and can really elevate an already good capture into a great one. Here’s some editing tips and techniques by our TiR wedding photographers:
An honour to have the brilliant Matteo Carta on the site today, as he tells us all about how he captured this Reportage Award from Collection Six. Capturing moments like this is something we all aspire to, and it’s fantastic to hear Matteo’s story behind this award-winning frame. Over to Matteo…
A little milestone for us today: As the fab John Steel shares all about how he captured this image (which is super apt for New Year’s Eve), we also celebrate our 100th ‘This is How’ piece! We can’t thank our TiR photographers enough for sharing so much of their expertise and knowledge throughout this year; 100 different images and Stories all explained exactly how they were captured, with such amazing advice and tips from world-renowned photographers; just amazing!
Today’s piece is no exception, with John including lots of supporting images, as well as his Lightroom screenshot of his exact edit. Super tips on capturing the energy of the dancefloor, his exact flash setup(s), assessing each different situation, getting up close, composition and more…thanks so much, John!
Honoured to have the fantastic Shaunte’ Dittmar with us today (who was one of our judges for Collection Four), as she explains all about her thought process and how she captured this striking image. Great insights on composition, the benefits of having a second shooter, the important of making a connection with her couple, editing and more…thanks so much, Shaunte’!
Fantastic to have James White with us today, as he takes us behind the scenes of his Reportage Award-winning capture from back in Collection Five. Really great insights into shooting through the scene, observation, getting up close, capturing emotion, and a great run-down on his edit, too. Thanks so much, James!
Delighted to have a new ‘This is How’ piece on the site today, with the fab Olly Knight telling us all about how he captured this great speech image. Olly shares so much gold, here, including insights into bonding with his couple (and their family/friends) – and just why this is so important – composition, shooting up close, shooting through the scene, info on his edit (with a before/after comparison), and more…thanks so much, Olly!
