I usually work with a 35mm lens and also with a 85mm in two different camera bodies. I'm using Canon right know. I like to be close to my subjects and play with the information lay
Wedding Photographer Beverino, Italy. Alessandro Manno shares a wedding photography technique.
In my country, Italy, after the ceremony the guests throw rice at the couple as a tradition. Right after that, they start to greet each other. Between those moments I decided to take a shot to show the tail of the dress and the wooden ground of the church. I love details, this is why I took this image.
No difficulties taking this shot. I do exactly what I want. In wedding photography you have to keep an eye on everything. Everything is there you only have to spot it. For this shot I decided to cut away the bodies to focus on the dress.
Shot with a Nikon D300 at a church in Beverino with 17-35mm 2.8; I always carry 2 lens: 17-35mm and 50mm, checking the exposure on the dress.
I've started taking pictures on film, so I prefer to have good shots straight out of the camera and do less post processing. Just B/W conversion, increasing the contrast.
