Another part of the day that a lot of wedding photographers say is their favourite; the partying! There are lots of different ways this can be captured; here are some articles by our members that specifically relate to the party (tips, setting and more):
Thrilled to bring you a brand new ‘This is How’ piece today, and it’s a double-header, as the fab Patrick Mateer reveals how he captured two Reportage Awards from the same wedding.
This is a really in-depth piece – thanks so much Patrick! – with lots of insights into things such as reportage details, colour, composition, the power of cropping, contrast, capturing the dancefloor, the first dance, shooting close, visual ‘call backs’, observation, context, and more….
‘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!
So happy to be back again with another fantastic ‘This is How’ piece! Today, the brilliant Bogdan Chircan tell us exactly how he captured this recent Reportage Award of his:
A little milestone for us today: As the fab John Steel shares all about how he captured this image (which is super apt for New Year’s Eve), we also celebrate our 100th ‘This is How’ piece! We can’t thank our TiR photographers enough for sharing so much of their expertise and knowledge throughout this year; 100 different images and Stories all explained exactly how they were captured, with such amazing advice and tips from world-renowned photographers; just amazing!
Today’s piece is no exception, with John including lots of supporting images, as well as his Lightroom screenshot of his exact edit. Super tips on capturing the energy of the dancefloor, his exact flash setup(s), assessing each different situation, getting up close, composition and more…thanks so much, John!
Delighted to have Martin Makowski with us today, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Award from Collection Five. Great tips about trying different perspectives, envisaging an image, and the process he went through to try (and succeed!) to achieve it. Also included is lots of supporting images; various other captures by Martin, so you can see how he worked through the scene – great stuff indeed, thanks Martin!
