Wedding Photographer Madrid, Spain. Alberto Sagrado shares a wedding photography technique.
From the beginning, I saw the full moon in the background of the picture, and I realized that it was the best possible background for the photo.
The bride and the groom were moving a lot around the dance floor. I told my assistant to stay behind them to get the silhouette with the black background of the sky. My assistantâ€™s flash had a Pocket Wizard, and was programmed at manual mode with 1/64 power.
Right behind me, there was a small white roof, so I bounced my flash over my camera to the roof to illuminate the couple.
For me it was a great challenge to get several incredible images of this dance and, at the same time, avoid the couple to be posing.
Finally, we were able to get the photos from the bridal dance that represented our clients, which is one of our principal objectives in all the weddings.
The wedding ceremony took place in the city of Elche, Alicante, Spain.
My camera was in manual mode, the flash in TTL -1.5 EV.
Nikon D4 1/250 s
The process is very simple, just LR5.
