Photographing Candlelight

It can be difficult to capture the spirit of the holidays in one sweeping shot.

Family togetherness, excited anticipation, festive coziness- these are all things we’d love to remember about such a special season. So rather than trying to force a bunch of different feelings and moments in one perfect image, it might be more effective to create a photo series – a collection of meaningful photographs that showcase what the holidays feel like in your home.

What Makes a Good Photo?

Last year I was looking around an entire gallery of competition winners and one thing that struck me was the fact that I struggled to find an image that hadn’t been heavily Photoshopped. Don’t get me wrong, there were some amazing images there and quite deservedly so but it got me thinking about what makes an image good!

I change my mind from one day to the next as to what makes a photo really good. One day I get annoyed at those heavily manipulated images that seem to be all the rage with many photographers these days and the next day I am loving them, processing and creating them myself!

For example, the following image from a recent wedding I shot was a set up from the start, from an idea I had when I saw the brides hotel bedroom. It was taken with just the camera and lens, nothing else. However, it has been through about 8 or 9 processes in Lightroom and Photoshop to get the end result. That result is exactly as I imagined it and I actually quite like the end result.

However, a short time later during another semi-posed session,

Fun Wedding Photography

Wedding photography can be a super-competitive industry. Especially if you live in a small town where successful photographers already seemingly monopolize most clients, it can be hard to stay competitive and marketable as you reach out to work with new customers. That being said, one of the most crucial ways to ensure the satisfaction of your clients is to provide them with a uniquely exciting experience that they can’t find anywhere else. Consider what we shared last week when we discussed the differences between amateur and professional photography:

“A main reason why some photographers grow a big following and others don’t is that those more famous photographers are able to tell a unique story that can’t be found anywhere else. When you take shots at around the same skill level, of generally the same things and in generally the same style as millions of other people, you’re inherently pinning yourself up against competition and giving potential followers and fans less of a reason to check out your work specifically.”

When you get into wedding photography specifically, this holds especially true. So by providing clients with a fun and unique service different from your competition, you’re giving

Unfortunately, those people are missing out on the period of time (usually about 20 minutes later) when the sky lights up again with a stunning, colorful glow (some say it’s almost like a second sunset)!

  • Make a Silhouette-Too many photographers make the mistake of composing sunset shots with the horizon line smack dab in the middle of the shot, every single time. Stop doing this! For a more compelling and colorful shot, put the horizon in the bottom or top third of your image instead.
  • Avoid Filters-Too many amateurs make the mistake of using polarizing
