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):
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:
It’s an honour to have the fantastic Jon Mold on the site today to tell us all about how he captured this Reportage Award-winning image. This is a brilliantly in-depth piece, with detailed insights into his exact flash setup and equipment use, great insights into testing and ‘locking in’ your settings so as to focus on the moment and composition and much more – thanks so much for such an exhaustive and informative ‘This is How’ piece, Jon!
A real pleasure to have the fab Germany-based This is Reportage member Alexander Ziegler on the site today, telling us how he got this striking dancefloor capture. As always with our ‘This is How…’ pieces, there are some fantastic tips and insights shared, including exploring the world from different perspectives, embracing light and shadows, imagination, and Alexander’s use of monochrome mode on his cameras….thanks so much, Alex!
We’re thrilled to have the fab Portugal-based TiR member Hugo Barreleiro on the site today, telling us all about this awesome partying capture of his. Really interesting insights about not missing moments, shooting no matter what the lighting, but also about the difference good lighting can make – with lots of supporting images too. A great read!
Only the top 4% of submissions became Reportage Story Awards in Collection One, and we’re thrilled to have one of the winners – the brilliant Andrew Keher – take us behind the scenes of his award. Reportage Story Awards are given to the very best series of images (between 15 – 20) from a single wedding, and represent the pinnacle of storytelling and consistently excellent coverage. Andrew’s insights are invaluable here, including great tips on getting really close with a 24mm, finding his own style, embracing the ‘targeted chaos’ of weddings, overcoming the challenges of low light, and much more…thanks, Andrew!
