These are ‘This is How’ pieces that specifically talk about instances where a photographer pre-visualised an image; seeing a resultant capture in their head before it has actually happened (and all about the techniques they used in order to obtain it):
This Is How: ‘Corrupting Influence’ by Lucy Judson
Fantastic to have Lucy Judson on the blog today, as she takes us behind the scenes of this Reportage Award-winning capture from back in Collection Three. This is a really extensive piece, with Lucy dealing with lots of different subjects, including patience, intuition, ‘looking for the moment’, the importance of capturing the moments before, and more. With supporting images as well, this is a fantastic read; thanks so much, Lucy!
This Is How: ‘First Dance As Shot From A Balcony’ by Leonard Walpot
Thrilled to have Leonard Walpot with us today, as he tells us all about how he captured this Reportage Award from Collection Seven (Collection Eight winners due to be announced later this week, by the way!). Really great insights into working with two ‘lead’ photographers at this particular wedding, composition, finding different viewpoints, pre-visualisation and more…

A real pleasure to have the fantastic Lauren Brimhall with us today, as she takes us behind the scenes of this striking capture. This is such an interesting and in-depth ‘This is How…’ article, with so many insightful nuggets; including tips about intuition, pre-visualisation, and hugely important lessons about determination and perseverance, in order to capture the best moments possible for our couples.
