Looking for Light in Today's Atlanta Wedding Photography
As a Atlanta wedding photographer the first thing I am looking for when shooting a wedding is light. But what is photography but drawing with light. You can look for light sources everywhere. I generally look for natural light sources because the are just more natural. They are also more predictable vs. flashes and such. When shooting a wedding I like to shoot quickly no one wants to wait and wait on the wedding photographer to set up lights that he can only use on one shot. So I like to travel light and with today's light sensitive cameras you don't really need the bright lights of the past.
At www.atlantaartisticweddings.com we are a group of Atlanta wedding photographers always looking for creative and unique lighting. One of my favorite light sources right now is the cell phone! Most cell phones have a pretty powerful LED light in them now. They are always available and easy to work with. Recently I was shooting as wedding. It was one of the fe moments that the couple danced. I was not the only person who noticed and on of the guests started shooting video with their cell phone. When I saw how he was also holding it high I thought perfect! I lined up on the person and their phone and got this wonderful rim light on the couple. I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I did taking it.
