Capturing the Connection in Couple Photoshoots
Day 2 of the Amsterdam workshop was interesting because we go to hear from two other photographers who do things quite differently. Gabe Mcclintock poses the couples in a position then let them interpret it and pour their own emotions in, whereas Ed Peers only suggest places.
As photographers one thing we look for is the best light, then the composition, so we’ll look at a place and turn around until we find the light, then suggest a way to occupy the space. I don’t like posing much personally but suggesting things to do seems to give the couples some reassurance, although I’d like for you to feel free to move and be yourselves. each photographer has their own way and has the clients that are the best match for them so it’s great that we don’t all work in the same way.
We stared indoors in a bright warehouse place, then moved to a darker one and finally went outdoors. Gabe liked very moody photos, with eyes down and no eye contact. I like them but would want to see some joy and contact too, some interaction, some playfulness.
If you’d like your love and fun captured in a natural way so you remember how fun ti was when you looked at the photos, give me a call. Alix 07763064497
