Professional Photography Tips and Tricks
In this serie of blog posts I'll be sharing photography tips and tricks. Things I've learned during my career as a professional wedding photographer. It is not supposed to be a guideline for photography, but just a little peek into my world and how I like to work
Part 1 - Creative Angles
In this first blog post I'd like to discuss creative angles when photographing. As a wedding photographer I like being on the move, constantly looking for creative angles to capture my subject (often a wedding couple ;)).
PRO TIP: Keep moving around, looking for the best angle to capture your subject
When you try to decide your angle, the first things to check are the light and composition, BUT once you've got that covered, you can take that little extra step. What if you lay down on the floor, climb a wall, a tree, use reflective surfaces?
Okay, it might not look very charming, but I love exploring low (really low) angles. Don't be afraid to get your clothes dirty to get those killer shots!
For this shot I lay down in the grass while the bride was swinging on this swing. The shot was taken with a 14-24mm Nikkor lens, so you can imagine her feet were actually pretty close to my face!
PRO TIP: Don't be afraid to get your clothes dirty
It's easy to 'go low', but sometimes you also get the opportunity to 'go high'! Sometimes this means using a simple bench or wall, I love getting up close to our wedding couples from above.
If you are a good climber, be sure to try out climbin in trees as well! You can get some pretty amazing shots from above.
Stay tuned for more PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS AND TRICKS!
