Barrett and Coe Wedding Course

Today was day one of the wedding course I am undertaking, and its good to be doing some training again.  Although its only 5 weeks since the exam day for the portrait course, I have missed my Sundays in Ware.  Although there is some cross over from the portrait course to this course there is a whole lot to learn.  One of the daunting things about wedding photography, is remembering the photos you have to take.  Missing an important shot, is going to get you into hot water with the bride and groom.  So, to remember the shots you have to take the wedding is broken down into blocks, and today we learnt about Block A, which is the groom and best man, with the ushers at the church, normally taken before the bride arrives.

Obviously we didn’t have a wedding party to use as models, so we used the other students and members of staff.  Jenny, above, is a dab hand at role playing members of the wedding party – above, she is role playing the best man.

Here, the groom and the best man shake hands, a classic wedding shot, although the groom isn’t usually wearing cargo shorts and trainers!

We also practiced some environmental shots, with the aim of killing top light, and recognising the differing levels of light and shade.

So, in this shot of another student, the left side of his face is a little shiney, but there is a hint of a rembrandt triangle, and I am quite happy with the shot.

In summary, its good to be training again, now, on with the homework!
