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):
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!
Brilliant to have the fab Geeshan Bandara on the site today, taking us behind the scenes of how he captured this recent Reportage Award from Collection Four. Great insights into getting in really close on the dance-floor, going for the different angles/viewpoints, lighting, settings, pre-focusing and more…thanks so much, Geeshan!
Brilliant to have Marta May on the site today to tell us about this Reportage Award from Collection Two. Marta has won two awards with us now, over two different collections – no mean feat! It’s so interesting to read her insights into how this image was captured, about the intrinsic benefits of shooting as a duo, and the importance of capturing real moments. Really recommend reading this; a great piece, thanks Marta!
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:
