OK so I did a post on this photogenic couple back the day after I took their pictures. I finished up about 35 pictures real quick and released them… but… I had another 100-200 in mind to edit up and give the happy couple.
So I edited them and then I was saying to myself I should post some more. Then I uploaded them wrong and had to change the order of the gallery to chronological (which I usually do as a secondary gallery viewing) and so I thought why not post theese pictures in chronological.
The point of these posts are for future clients to know what I’m about and what to expect for their photoshoots… AND for photographers to see how another photographer operates.
So you’ll see the progression of places and how I use the places and how light changes and how we interact. I might have put in a couple dozen pics into this post but there are still over 100 I didn’t put in. So check them out if you really want to see it all.
K I tried to put more of the newer pics into the mix this time for those who still remember the last post. (Which I doubt people will remember them all)
I really love the one on the bottom right… but it matches the other one so we put it more into a sequence for this post.
Above and below should show you how big a difference the choice of lens can have on a location.
I think these two (below and above) really tell a lot about these two whom I know very well… they are fashionable minded and they met eachother dancing.
At the end of the park near the Eiffel Tower there is a Memorial to peace. It is a great vantage point to the tower.
Being far enough away to photograph a subject this large with an unobstructed view is important to be able to use a lens like the 70-200 in order to stand back and zoom in to be able to compress the scene and give it a unique look and feel.
The framing of the couple and the tower were just great perks. Plus it was on an elevated level which allow to shoot above the park and the fences and people that are strolling about.
To get this far away made it a much harder scene to light up because my lights had to shoot farther… I therefore had to take the softbox off and go straight zoomed in flash… it was still hard being the mid morning on a bright cloudy day.
There is a lot more of the memorial that would make for awesome pictures however being limited on time we went for the pretty straight forward awesome spot.
She was pretty cold by then so we got the jacket back on her and he opted to do a couple extra pictures as we waited for the car to pull around.
THE PLANNED POSTS
This is part of a longer series focusing on 7 different locations (some locations are broken down)
OK so here it is: The first installment of the Wedding Pictures in Paris.
I write this moments before I jump in my car and head to California to do a wedding tomorrow… so the other posts will have to wait until next week.
So as you can expect one could spend all day at this location and take tons of pictures but for us this was one of 7 locations that we went to that day.
I chose a location a bit farther away so I could use both the 50mm 1.4 and the 70-200 2.8 and still have full tower in view.
When I was using the 70-200 I’d usually back aways and zoom in giving them their room and let them kinda come up with their own stuff… I had them walk to me for a couple as I laid there in on the cold wet ground… I know “what a trooper” haha
I call this time of year “Dirty Fall” and I love it. It’s when most of the leaves have fallen they’ve since been rained on and lost a lot of color except for that dirty fall kinda look.
It’s that point where it’s almost a bit more winter than it is fall but some of the colors of fall still remain.
The spot speaks to romance… so they did mostly tender, emotional and romantic poses.
I’m calling this one a sneak peak because then I’m allowed to do a more in depth post on the pictures later… maybe break them down a bit.
Whereas I want to show off how I shoot, why I take the pictures I do (for both clients and aspiring photographers) this’ll just be a “Look-At-These-Pictures” gallery
Well I said this was gonna be a sneak peak… so maybe I should stop it here… there are lots more
Finished up a photo shoot at the Canyons and was heading home and decided to take advantage of the first fallen snow of the year (a light dusting) and the unique light that was shining through on the fall colors.
