Shooting Through The Scene
You can’t expect to take just one photo from a moment and get the best image possible – it just doesn’t happen like that! Instead, ‘shooting through the scene’ is a vital technique in order to capture the best moment we can; here are some ‘This is How’ articles by our TiR members exploring this concept:
Today we bring you a fantastic ‘behind the scenes’ piece by Linda Bouritius, as she tells us all about her recent Reportage Award-winning shot from Collection Five. Linda’s thoughts on the discussion that this image created – both positive and negative – and the huge affect it had on her photography, are really profound; can’t recommend reading this piece enough! Thanks so much to Linda for being so open and sharing her thoughts like this.
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 TiR member Geertje Vierhout on the site today, as she tells us all about how she captured this unique image! Such an important and strong theme that Geertje details in this piece; a tip that is truly universal – and we find out exactly why below…Thanks, Geertje!
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!
Excited to have the fab Niels Gerhardt on the site today to tell us how he captured this recent Reportage Award-winning capture from Collection Five. Really insightful tips on following your intuition, shooting through a scene, and a specific tip about a particular camera setting that enabled him to get this image – a great read, thanks Niels!
