Good Morning Everybody,
Stop, stop - no emails please - I'm talking about the photography and I've seen some ugly bridal photography. I'm most definitely NOT referring to the subject!!! Anyway, hope you got a chance to watch the Canon 5D Mark II video I posted yesterday. I really appreciate your remarks but was a bit surprised by a few of the comments. Hey, Mr. Anonymous - where ever you are - the tongue movement was the high school senior lip syncing the song lyrics, obviously not everyone has my same opinion and I always appreciate hearing from each of you. Anyway 'nough said - still a great video with outstanding photography.
The comments did raise some other questions which I hope to cover in future posts. Kent took hours getting the video together - not a way to be profitable if you sell the video for only a few dollars. This whole video/still/workflow thing needs some additional thought and discussion - so stay tuned. Anyway, how about on with this week's Technique Tuesday...
How To Photograph a Bride - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Every now and then, someone will comment on one of my images of the day and that comment will give me an idea for a future post. That what happened a few weeks ago when I posted "Rocky Mountain High" and someone commented about my cutting off the bride's gown in the photograph. It was his opinion that you should never cut off the bride's gown. I agree 100% with the remark, except when I cut off the bride's gown.
So, how about a discussion about when to cut off the gown and when not to cut off the gown. Hey, wait a second, let me give you the whole scoop on photographing a bride - what you need to cover, how to cover it, what you should expect as a final result. Fasten your seat belts and hit PLAY below and watch and listen.
