Faversham weddings | couple’s pre-wedding shoot, Faversham Creek, Kent

Great to spend an hour this morning with one of this year’s wedding couples for their pre-wedding photo shoot in Faversham, Kent. For technical info please see further down the post and if you’d like to come to the next Camera Skills Workshop on April 16th in Canterbury, you need to book now! http://cameraskills.eventbrite.com/


Shooting after 10am, the sun was climbing steadily and so the shadows were escaping fast. The first scene by the large warehouse doors near Creek Creative off Abbey Street required making our own shadows because the sun was behind the building. Light stands, radio triggers, both lights at full power and using their distance to set the ratios (it’s faster when you’re dodging the traffic because one of your stands is in the road!). ISO 100-200 and F4-F5.6 at at least 1/125th for the 24-105L, 1/250th for the 70-200L lens. UV filters off because I was shooting partially into the sun. The remaining scenes were without flash, looking for backlighting where possible and at 90 degrees to the prevailing light. If you’re interested in shooting urban street-based portraiture, please do get in touch for a training session.
