I search for most of my references outside of wedding photography. One day looking over the Internet I discovered the amazing work of the photographer Dan Mountford about doubl
Wedding Photographer Romania. Marius Barbulescu shares a wedding photography technique.
At Wedding Photography Select, we don't just want to show you the best images from the best wedding photographers around the world. We want to tell you a little story behind them as well. The idea, the execution, the result. As this section grows, we want to give you an in depth description of each of the shots taken by some of the very best wedding photographers. We hope it proves to be inspiring and insightful.
We had 2 hours for the photo-session. At the end of the session I realised we had some lovely images, but I wanted to get something different and something dramatic. I said to the couple that we need to get a little crazy to finish everything off.
All I needed was a good place to lay down and then I positioned the couple in front of me. I instructed him to jump like that but the hands were all his idea :-) I didn't have to say anything to the bride as I knew her reaction would be genuine, just react as he does some silly jumping.
Using my Canon 5D MKII and a 35mm 1.4 lens, I focused the camera on her and shot about 25 to 30 frames to get the image that I was happy with. I wanted a B&W image and that's all I did in my post work.
I've won an ISPWP & WPS Excellence Award for this image, so I am very pleased and it's hopefully the favourite shot for the couple too.
