Wedding Photographer South Island, New Zealand . Daniel Beh shares a wedding photography technique.
This photo was taken in New Zealand. We chartered a helicopter to fly up 4000 feet to this place, and we were greeted with an awesome view of the lake. It was quite hilly, so I had the couple standing on a knoll whilst I took the photo from a higher place to get the lake as the background.
Before I took this shot, the sun set behind the mountain range on my left, so I get really good balanced light on the couple, the grassy foreground and the lake.
Walking around the area is physically tiring because itâ€™s a very hilly place. Kudos to my couple who endured the 12-degree celcius wind for a good 5mins while I climbed to the other knoll to get this photo.
I deliberately composed my couple to look small in the photo because I wanted to show the scale of the location. Also, the triangle grassy area serves as leading lines towards the couple, which makes the photo more impactful.
Canon 5D MKIII, 50mm f1.2. Shot at f4, 1/250, ISO320. Centre-weighted metering.
Very little post processing work is done, this image practically an out of camera shot. Other than using Dodge and Burn tool to brighten the grassy foreground a little. The couple love it! They even did a canvas print of this photo!
