Patience is one of the most important things that someone needs to have in order to become a brilliant documentary wedding photographer; here are posts by our This is Reportage photographers explaining why:
We absolutely love the ‘This is How’ series of posts by our TiR members, and today’s piece is no exception, with an incredibly interesting behind-the-scenes look by Elliot Patching of his recent Reportage Award from Collection Five. Not only really practical advice about reflections, light and editing, but also insightful tips about patience, pre-visualisation and more…thanks so much, Elliot!
Excited to have the brilliant Pete Henderson on the site today, talking to us about how he got this great wedding breakfast entrance capture (a part of the day that can be very difficult indeed to capture so creatively). A super-interesting post, with Pete sharing great insights into balancing the capture of atmosphere/available light, with wanting to make his bride and groom stand out by using flash, great tips on his exact flash setup, pre-focusing, patience, post production, as well as a great little tip about having a ‘backup plan’ for moments like this. A brilliant read!
Honoured to have the great Anna Poole of Luna Weddings with us today, taking us behind the scenes of her recent Reportage Award (Anna actually won two awards in Collection Three; an incredible feat, with only the top 4% of submissions awarded worldwide). Really great insights into getting creative, spotting opportunities, off-camera flash, patience, persistence and more. Anna also shares other images from the series she took, as well as a SOOC file. So interesting; a brilliant read!
An honour to have the fantastic Netherlands-based TiR member Denise Motz on the blog today to take us behind this recent Reportage Award of hers! Not only is the story behind the image powerful, but Denise’s insights into the way she works and got this capture, along with lots of supporting images, really makes this a must-read. Thank you, Denise!
A real pleasure to have the fab Tim Millen of This Modern Love on the site today, as he tells us all about this great capture of his – superb tips on light, patience, composition and more. Really great insights on what Tim calls ‘fortune favours the prepared’ too – such a great quote, and so true!
