24mm, 35mm, 85mm, zooms…there are lots of tools available to us wedding photographers! In the following posts, our This is Reportage members talk about the lenses they used for wedding photography – and why:
‘This is How’ is back…! After some time off, I’m thrilled to be bringing back this regular feature, where our members share exactly how they ‘got the shot’. Kicking off the renaissance today, we have the brilliant Kristof Claeys, telling us exactly how he captured this Reportage Award of his. Kristof was ranked 11th in the World here on TiR for 2020, and 16th in the World over on our sister-site for documentary family photography, This is Reportage: Family. I also had the pleasure of interviewing him on our Podcast.
Kristof really takes us on an in-depth dive into his thought process, equipment used, inspirations and more… a really fantastic read. Thanks so much, Kristof!
We think it’s absolutely amazing when our members share their behind-the-scenes tips and advice about how they captured certain images – and it’s brilliant when they share all about their Story Awards too! Today, the fantastic Ash Davenport is taking us back to one of his Story Awards from Collection Ten, including thoughts on his overall approach, as well as specific details about how he captured certain images from the Award-winning Story. Including tips on capturing emotion, patience, lens choice, layers, storytelling, colour, composition, and more, this is an in-depth and incredibly insightful read – thanks so much, Ash!
Delighted to have Jesse van Kalmthout on the site today, telling us all about how he got this fantastic Reportage Award-winning capture from Collection Six. This is an absolutely brilliant piece, with great insights into capturing emotion, his thought process and exact technique, observation and so much more…thanks so much, Jesse!
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!
Honoured to have a brand new ‘This is How…’ piece on the site today, as Michele Morea tells us about how he captured this recent Reportage Award-winning image. Really interesting thoughts on layering, composition, pre-visualisation, and documentary wedding photography in general – a great read!
