Wedding Photojournalism Thailand – My style
Traditional style Vs Wedding Photojournalism style
The history of wedding photography starts with traditional style approach not usually the wedding photojournalism style. This is the timeless style that you’ve probably seen time and time again offered by local and international photographers. The hallmark of this style is carefully posed photographs of the key moments. Benefits: A traditional wedding photographer Thailand will usually use a planned “shot list”, which means you’ll get all the important images. Drawbacks: The photographer virtually becomes a “wedding official,” directing the wedding party and guests according to a pre-planned list. This approach is very constricting, and as a result, the bride and groom end up spending less time with their guests.
Photo reportage, documentary approach or wedding photojournalism has become a very popular style, used by many best wedding photographers. This features a series of candid photos covering the entire day. Benefits: wedding photojournalism gives you a series of unique images aimed to “tell the story” of your wedding day. Drawbacks: There is no pre-planned “shot list,” only the photographer’s instincts; images are unpredictable. Low levels of available light may cause some pictures to look grainy. The couple may regret the absence of traditional, posed portraits in their album.
The illustrative style photographers place the subjects in certain settings to take advantage of good lighting or backgrounds. Then, once the scene is set, the couple and their party are free to be themselves, and this results in a more spontaneous feel. Unlike the photo journalistic style, illustrative photography takes advantage of the photographer’s artistic judgment rather than capturing a series of moments. This style often used by the best engagement and pre wedding photographers.
We will agree on the traditional and posed shots we need and the timing. Your wedding photojournalist-that’s me, will scout locations and suggest from a photography standpoint what we think will be the best settings and we will agree on how to incorporate them. Then you are on your own to enjoy your day with your loved ones and I will capture all the action and decisive moments for you -being as unobtrusive as I possibly can. This is your day and you don’t need some egotistical photographer herding people around. For our most recent work please follow this LINK
