Art in weddings
Fine art wedding photography, the aim of the photographer should be to get images that are to be revered as being works of art. In this style of wedding photography, what comes first is the photographer getting inspiration as to what he wants the outcome of the pictures to be. The eventual results are what the photographer envisioned from the beginning. This means that the photographer covers the wedding with a set idea of how the eventual images should be.
For the modern day wedding, most couples lean towards fine art wedding photography as their wedding style. Going by the fact that the photographer already has something in mind regarding how the pictures should be, the shots gotten are then following the narrative of the photographer. In the images, everything from setting, colour, composition, backdrop and lighting matter in the eventual outcome.
Although most people tend to mistake the fine art wedding photography with photojournalism, the two could not be anymore different from one another. For photojournalism, the focus is based on giving a realistic replication of the events which took place at the wedding without embellishments. However, with fine art, the case is different. The artistic flair of the photographer shines through in the pictures and obvious in their portfolios as well.
The picture the photographer creates is given the term “art” if it resonates certain feelings.
Other photographs that do not fall within the fine art style, are often based on the structure of objects or subject of something without the aim to effect the state of the viewer. Although it is fact that there exists images that are not specifically orchestrated by the photographer regardless, they still manage to relate the connection intended.
In the case of fine art wedding photography, there are different ways in which the images taken can be classified. This is as a result of the lack of objectivity in these pictures. It can then be said that the resulting images are a portrayal of the photographer and not the object.
In spite of these individualities of the fine art wedding photography, it also tries to combine the expression of personal aspects of the photographer with universal questions in order to be able to approach the greater part of the public.
Relate the tale
Although it is great to make a great photo of the bride and groom, the main job as a photographer is to tell the story of the whole event. I think the fundamental difference between an amateur photographer and a professional photographer is that the amateur is content if he gets one or two good photos of the day, while the professional has to make sure that they get an acceptable and artistic take on each situation. This is never as important as at a wedding, you can not go back and do it again, so you have the one that ensures that everything is controlled.
It is very important to know if you should be standing to get the best angle or make sure you have a space reserved for you if you are going to be the last one to enter the church.
