How I Photograph Weddings as a Street Photographer:
In this video, I talk about how I see the correlation between Wedding Photography and Street Photography.
Using the documented shooting approach of Tony Ray Jones, I’ll explain how the way we photography on the streets can aid us when photographing documentary weddings.
In this video I talk about Tony Ray-Jones’ shooting approach notes:
- Be More Aggressive
- Get More Involved
- Stay with the subject matter
- Take Simpler Pictures
- Relate Background to Subject
- Vary Composition and Angles
- Be more aware of composition
- Don’t take boring pictures
- Get in closer
- Don’t shoot too much
- Not all eye level
I explore in depth how I use those guidelines in Street Photography, but also how I incorporate them into my documentary wedding photography.
At the end of the video is another full-length wedding Photofilm, so hang around to the end if you wish to see that.
For those interested in the stills used in the video, I’ve included them below. Full EXIF data is available in the images.
As ever, please feel free to leave comments below or over on the YouTube Video and I’ll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.
Oh, and don’t forget our new podcast: The FujiCast Photography Podcast
Finally, thank you to those that stopped to say “hello” at the Photography Show. It was lovely to see so many people at both my talks and even more nice that so many stopped by to mention this website and the new Podcast too.
Thank you for that.
