You don’t always have to see people’s faces to feel the emotion of an image; touch is an incredibly powerful way of doing this, and something every photographer should keep in mind. Here are some articles specifically relating to touch in wedding photography:
Delighted to have Peter Geluk on the site today, with a really interesting piece about how he captured his recent Reportage Award from Collection Five. Peter’s words really tell us the importance of bonding with our clients; of knowing their backstory before the wedding, so we can be prepared and ready to capture such intimate and emotional moments like this. A brilliant ‘This is How’ piece indeed; thanks Peter!
It’s an honour to have the fantastic Belgium-based TiR member Philippe Swiggers with us today, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Story Award from Collection Three. Story Awards are given to the very best series of images (15 – 20) from a single wedding, representing world-class storytelling, creativity and consistency – with just the top 4% of entries being awarded in Collection Three, receiving a Story Award is no mean feat! I absolutely love what Philippe talks about in this piece: The power and vital importance of building relationships and rapport with not only the couple, but their family and friends too, in order to truly capture the very essence of the day – a brilliant, brilliant read:
Always an honour to feature a new ‘This is How…’ piece by our This is Reportage members, and today is no exception as the brilliant Shlomi Amiga (Canada) takes us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Award-winning capture. Really great insights into capturing connections between people – and doing so by not only capturing faces or expressions. A brilliant read; thanks Shlomi!
Delighted to feature a brand new ‘This is How…’ piece today, with the fantastic UK-based Adam Riley talking to us about he got this recent Reportage Award from Collection One. Thanks so much, Adam!
It’s an absolute pleasure today to have David Scholes on the site, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Story Award. Just the top 4% of submissions were awarded by our Collection One judges; to obtain a Reportage Story Award means the photographer has captured lots of different moments to an incredibly high standard, representing the very best storytelling in the business (which is always a massive goal for wedding photographers).
David shares fantastic insights into focusing on moments and feelings rather than technical things, framing and composition tips, shooting close and low, anticipation and layering, his OCF set up for the evening, and much more. It’s fascinating to hear in-depth analysis about so much from a wedding – thanks so much, David!
