The most important consideration is the viewpoint. Before you even touch your camera you want to know what is it that you want to photograph and how you want to present it. You also want to give a little thought on the angles you might want to shoot from.
Num 6. Don’t go tight with your clothing choices. I’m not referring to baggy but not too tight either. If you go to tight with your choices of garments, it can indent your skin. Which will display up in the photos and take away from your attractiveness.
Another inspiration has always been Victorian pictures. I think the women were so beautiful back then. I try to include them in jewelry as well. I think the really interesting part is that these people are now long gone and they get to live on in my artwork.
I’m tickled to be able to kick off 2011 by featuring the opening of Nature LA: Ted Yeager at the G2 Gallery on Abbot Kinney in Venice, Ca. Photographer Ted Yeager, a friend and former colleague of mine, is a talented graphic designer and artist. I became familiar with his aesthetic sensibility when we worked together a couple of years ago. In this age of digital everything, Ted keeps it classic, traditional, yet fresh. He shoots primarily black and white film (yes, film!) with medium and large format cameras. His passion for classical photography is as obvious as the love he has for his subject: nature.
Just you two and the photographer The photographer will want to take the Bride & Groom away from the guests for a while to shoot some photographs. This is quite normal. Make sure no one else comes along, NO CHILDREN, no guests, on one. Any other people will get in the way. These photographs cannot be easily retaken therefore you need to get the best first time round.
For our examples, let’s assume we want to take long exposure light trails of car lights. You will want to find somewhere where there is a lot of fast-moving traffic, and not much ambient light. Although, I must add, having neon signs or other lighting on the side CAN add for cool effect of the photo.Now, find a good perspective that will catch the car lights passing by, and setup your tripod, camera, and get ready!
On the bright side there is an accelerating need for images. On the downside, image theft is rampant, image supply is infinite, and old distribution models are crumbling.
