Sometimes a photograph just stands out at truely amazing, and other times it can be passed by a few times before its noticed. This was the case with the image that won our latest Gold Award at the SWPP International Photography Competition.
It was shot at our Ibiza wedding back in May, and it wasn’t until I was re-looking through the images to find new work to show at our wedding fairs that this image really captured my attention. I entered it for the ‘Environmental Portraiture’ catagory and the judges seemed to agree with me!
I have also included some of our silver award winning images that didn’t quite make Gold, but came pretty close!
I had a great time last weekend shooting a wedding that spanned over 2 days. The wedding was at Pinewood Studios Heatherden Hall and had the ceremony and speeches on the Friday and a big party on the Saturday.
The couple had loads of great ideas to make the wedding unique including a rubber duck theme, bubbles instead of confetti, bowls with goldfish in as table pieces and a giant balloon launch as a finale.
There were too many fantastic photos to choose from so we picked some of our favourite shots from the balloon launch. We were really lucky that there was a strong wind that kept changing direction making the balloon launch even more exciting!
This week we had the pleasure of a visit from the A Level photography students at Hurst Lodge School. The girls came to our studio for an hour to get some inside information on how a professional studio works.
We had a great time pulling faces at the camera in the aim of making one of our unique silly faces montages, and everyone got to have a go at helping to set up the studio lights and using the camera.
Afterwards we spent a bit of time showing how we create our montages in Photoshop and everyone left with lots of useful information.
It was a pleasure working with the girls and this is something we hope to continue in the future.
