Once again, five of Halifax’s finest wedding photographers (and me) hit the studio last nite to come up with ideas and then fight over who’s going to get to pop the flash first. If this was a typical classroom setting, the six of us would have all been sitting in the front row with our left hands raised in the air, the other arm pushing with all its might to get the left arm as high as possible so as to get noticed.
Last night we decided we’d pick 4 random locations, take either a bride (Charlotte) or a bride and groom (Debbie + Perry ‘the male model’) and shoot for 10 minutes. we needed to come up with as many poses as possible using whatever was around.
Before everyone even gets in the door you can see the wheels turning. lights are being setup, lenses chosen and then people start sneaking off to get a few more photos or check out a location in advance. I’ve never been at ‘work’ a day in my life where people sneak off to do more work.
I decided to shoot more behind the scenes video last night because I knew this was going to be something you wanted to see. I’ve got a 5 second clip of Sue stuck in the elevator doors that just wouldn’t be as funny if it were one photo. To see her little body get jammed in those elevator doors over and over and over again was awesome.
I’ll get the video up soon but I’m in the early stages of learning to edit so it takes forever.
in the meantime, I took 14 frames last night. i had a few ideas in mind. this was them (ok, I stole the last shot from someone else).
