Looking for Light by Atlanta Artistic Weddings
You don't need a lot of lights for great lighting you just need the right light for your subject. Recently I meet with a potential client and they asked me how many lights I carry. It made me think about how I shoot. When I get to a wedding venue I try to get there early so I can walk around and look for the best light and think about the time line. That way I know where to shoot in the morning, evening and afternoon. When you are aware of the natural light you can have some beautiful wedding photographs. I like to shoot with a minimal amount of lighting equipment that way I can move quickly and capture the special moments of your wedding day.
This photograph above is shot with natural light and no strobes and I love the lighting in this photograph. I will now tell you why. The lighting is even but has enough shadow to give the subject depth. It was a bright beautiful day. So I took the bride to the front porch of this historic mansion. I wanted a bright background for her but I did not want the light on her to be blown out. I moved her to behind one of the columns on the porch to shade her and then I knew I had the perfect lighting. Even lighting on her face and a bright background to break her up from the background. All of this was done with natural light!
As you visit my site I do hope you enjoy the photographs as much as I did taking them. It is such an honor being a wedding photographer in Atlanta.
Thanks so much for visting!
