The winter months can be lonely for a photographer – some more than others apparently. Bob talked to me a lot this winter about some detail shots he saw other photographers taking. Bob watches a lot of videos of other photogs working. I’ll be honest, he watches more than I do. I always feel like if I watch someone else work, I will try to mimic them rather shooting things how I see them. Of course, Bob is actually an artist. He went to school for it and everything. 😉 So he knows how to watch other artists work and take what he needs and leave the rest behind. It’s a great learning tool. I tend to try to adopt everything I see another photographer doing (If I love his or her work) and then I get all twisted around and paralyzed.
Anyway, his study time paid off. He shot a majority of the details at Lindsey and Matt’s wedding at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn last weekend, and I think the results are really stunning. The compositions and thought put into the shots are really well done. God, I hope he doesn’t read this. He also got a new lens and i think it had a lot more to do with the lens than the photographer. (Just kidding buddy)
Also, a huge thanks to Lindsey and Matt. Scheduling plenty of time to get ready allows for extra time to be taken to get some great detail shots. Enjoy!
