Its hard to be creative in the middle of this lockdown and with no Cardiff wedding photography going on its time to look to the new year and how I can continue to improve and offer even better photographs for my clients – who are, by the way, the best and always very supportive and lovely. They even indulge me with my selfie obsession!
A couple of years ago I did blogs with re-editing old weddings and seeing if I could find a new editing style and how it would work practically on every part of a wedding day and in different types of light. Light varies from season to season and depending on the weather. It can mean wildly different outcomes to the same editing style and it needs to be tested in these various situations.
This first edit is a slight cheat as it is a slight variance on one I used here on the wedding of Gemma and Ian at St Donats Castle. I have gone back to it as I realised how much I liked the edit when I saw one of the photos again that I had put on to my Instagram feed. It is an edit that gives a deeper look and feels a bit like it could be shot with a Medium format camera.
The photographs below were taken at the wedding of Olivia and Jai at St Tewdrics house in 2019 in early June. It was a great day and one that I really enjoyed as it was quite an easy shoot with most shots I took coming out well. This was due to a combination of a great venue, good light, lovely weather and a very photogenic couple! I’m sure you can see all that in the photos below. The preset (Filter) I have used on this has been called ‘Olivia’ and I am pretty sure I will be using it again.
