Following on from Brides and guides Pt 1 here is Part 2!
A little reminder first:
In 2015 I was asked to cover a friend’s wedding which caused a little panic in my head. The obvious thing to do was to get some practice in, but photography training courses are far from cheap and take a lot of time. I’ve already mentioned in another blog that I don’t have that long term attention span, like most people these days. We all want stuff quick quick quick, now now now, or yesterday would be even better.
I already had some skills from what I had taught myself along with some useful youtube tutorials and a bit of 1-2-1 tuition with Adrian Dewey the year before. I just needed to see what I could do with some models in wedding dresses and suits in the right locations, and I most definitely would benefit from some incredibly useful direction and tips from the wedding photography pros – Kim Hawkins and Jodie Chapman.
Today’s photo blog includes a few of my favourite images from the afternoon once we’d had a decent lunch at a local pub in Buckinghamshire. The venues this time were Bisham Abbey and All Saints Church, Bisham.
Something that really stands out was Jodie’s tip to try shooting in monochrome. When shooting in RAW you can see everything in monochrome on the back of your camera but when processing later on in Lightroom you still have all of the file details in colour. Genius. I had no idea about this and would probably not know this by now either.
This is a much shorter blog post than usual where I’m letting the images do the talking, but I have to sign off by reminding/highlighting that you can see more images on my facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/dandavidsonphotography
