193/365 - Really interested in your feedback on this one. So I’ve been thinking more recently about the value of having a videographer at a wedding, as opposed to a photographer. If it were me and I was getting married again and I had to choose only one, I would choose a videographer. Now of course, if you can afford both, by all means have both. We were lucky enough to be able to afford both, and when I remember the day, I remember it more from the videos than the photos. Don’t get me wrong, wedding photos are so special and so treasured by the couple and their families. However, the real raw footage of how the day actually happened, for me, is more special and more amazing than a still image of it. A photo is just a snapshot in time of a beautiful moment, but the video is the whole beautiful moment, including all the bits the photo missed. But that’s just my opinion. I’m absolutely not trying to devalue photographers, I’ve done wedding photography myself, but swipe through these and see what I mean. Let me know your thoughts and if you are getting married what you are going for? -
„Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us. We imprinted time with the sweet taste of victory. We conquered fate by meeting at a certain TIME in a certain space. We are a product of the time, therefore we give back credit where it is due: time.
We are synchronized, now and forever. I love you.” - Félix González-Torres in a letter to his lover Ross
I feel like….. improving your photography level is all about practice……..OR……..to hang out with someone who practices a lot. In my upcoming photography workshops in Tasmania, I will be working with very tiny groups of 4 or so, with plenty of one-on-one time, shaping your craft and unleashing your creativity (oh my goodness, that sounds wanky but……anyway). If you don’t get out shooting all that often, you might not be aware of the tips and tricks, and the process involved in creating images that are pleasing to both yourself and the viewer. I’m so passionate about what I do, and I hope that you consider coming along on one of my workshops. I will promise to tone down my joyful morning exuberance to suit your own quiet just-waking-up mood, and have lots of coffee. xx
