There are some photos that just can’t help but carry more energy & feeling & if taken a fraction of a second before or after, will become a completely different picture.
I have been developing my skills over the past few months and have had the privilege to photograph some very 'up for it' eager people! this had helped me in many ways to hone my skills and develop as a photographer. My shoots have been completely free of charge and they have often taken home a disk of their images with a slide-show or have been sent their images over the net. Wedding photography is an area I absolutely LOVE and I had the pleasure of attending an Irish wedding with another friend photographer back in May. It was an amazing experience, and gave me my first taste of wedding photography.
I am so, so eager to get out there and fulfil my dream,, to be a north wales photographer.
Amazingly she covered the cost of the flight over to Belfast and we stayed in an Irish guest house with all transfers and a meal at the wedding. We began that day, it was fast, everyone was on a high & everyone looked beautiful! I learnt an incredible amount shooting for that length of time, all day & into the night and mainly all in M-manual mode.
So much so at my friends wedding a few days later my reactions were quicker and I was more decisive on my settings and getting a more accurate exposure first time... it became easier! After 8 long-months of having my camera I was gradually getting my confidence up!
Both weddings were beautiful and I gave my friend and her husband all of their photos from my time as their guest as mine and my husbands gift to them.
