This experience sparked in me a love of photographing people and live events. So even though I wasn’t cut out for weddings, I can still relate to the excitement and pressure of shooting the big day.
Couples often say their wedding day was a blur. Some of the most memorable moments in their lives are happening in rapid succession and it’s up to you, the photographer or filmmaker, to artfully tell the story from an honest perspective. But even the most experienced creatives end up with some good shots that would have been great if only they had a little more control over the environment.
This is where I think quality effects are indispensable in every wedding photographers tool kit. Whether you want to better frame up the focal point (or frame out a distraction) or dial in the intensity of some memorable weather, effects can help subtly define moments in the way you envisioned.
Lens Distortions effects are hiding in plain sight in the portfolios of wedding photographers and filmmakers across the globe. Several of them were kind enough to share their perspective on our photo packs and some of their unique results.
