Wedding in Hotel Du Vin Brighton

Wedding in Hotel Du Vin Brighton This weekend we were chuffed to be invited to a wedding in the Hotel Du Vin in Brighton. On this occasion we were guests of Maz and Rob, however I could not resist taking my camera for a few informal snaps. The good thing about this, was the fact that I could leave the official photographer to work their magic. Obviously, I made sure that I did not get in their way and that meant that I was free to try a few reportage shots in natural light without flash. As I have mentioned before, this gives the opportunity to stand back and catch genuine emotional and candid pictures. Flash or Natural Light Obviously, there is always a balance between the two techniques. Technically perfect pictures with flash can sometimes distract the subject and spoil spontaneity and this has to be considered when taking photographs against the prevailing natural light. There is only so far that you can raise the ISO before the noise in the image ruins the picture and we photographers always have to take this into account.  In the case of Maz and Rob’s wedding, although the room had lots of natural light, as the couple were taking their vows, they were standing against a window with the light behind them.  These are not the best conditions for a photographer to get a good picture, so to overcome this it’s perfectly acceptable to use a technique called fill in flash,  this bounces light into the darker areas and lifts the picture. However this can also effect the quality and distract the...

Tudor Barn Wedding

Good morning from Singularis Photography, I thought that I would include a series of pictures that I took last year, at the wedding of Lyndsay and Bradley at Tudor Barn in Eltham. As you can see, they are all in Black and White and in a natural reportage style. I positioned myself at the back of the room with a 70-200mm lens to capture the emotion and excitement of the couple as they repeated their vows. In this case I did not use any flash and just relied on natural light, with a higher ISO to compensate. Now obviously there is always a technical trade off when you do this, but for me this is more than compensated by the opportunity to capture genuine emotion. As you can see, the couple were great fun and enjoyed every moment of the...
Wedding in Lydd

Wedding in Lydd

Good afternoon from Singularis Photography in Horsham. So today I thought I would speak about what it takes to be a wedding photographer. In particular I will speak about using anything at the venue to always get the picture. In July last year we were fortunate to photograph the wedding of Tim and Diane in Lydd. Even better was the fact that not only was the Church really attractive, but that the couple had their reception in a Marquee on a farm. We had access to all sorts of farm machinery, fields and hay bales and plenty of space. The weather on the day was great and we were able to spend time trying out all sorts of different shot’s. Tim and Diane were really up for having some fun shot’s and as you can see with the attached pictures, I made the best use of everything there, even if it meant standing 20ft up on an aerial platform. They also had access to a vintage soft top VW Beetle as their wedding car, so again it was another opportunity for some fun shot’s.  As a wedding photographer in East Sussex I think it’s important to make the day as enjoyable as possible. It’s a celebration after all, so I always try and reflect this on the day.  Here are a few pictures that show what I...
