Hi dear photogs,
recently I was thinking about the "glamour" in the wedding photo industrie. The big numbers in the game always show weddings of slim, beautyful brides, often in absolut dream locations.
When doing this you have no real problems with background because everything looks awesome. You do not need to concentrate on how to position yourself in relation to the bride to make her look slim, you just can shoot freely and explore new and unusual angles. It will not look unpleasening, it will look artsy. Last but not least, you can keep it very natural in post, no need for skin alteration whatsoever.
Of couse you market what you wanna shoot, but is this the right way? Is the wedding photo industry only for awesome looking people?
I just discovered these very obvious facts for myself while comparing my recent Bali shots to some weddings I shot in my hometown.
I want to show it like it is in reality, "to tell the story". But the brides want to look good of course - so here start the problems when she is not size 36 and has no peach-skin.
