03 Jul Cara & Clayton | Shades of Green, Johannesburg
Phew, this one is late, but there were a few images from this wedding that I really really liked and I eventually got around to posting these.
When the reception started Tim and I looked at each other knowingly. We knew this was going to be a tough one. Very low light, a high thatch roof (bad for flash photography), and very little to speak of in terms of directional light. I must confess that at the end of the evening I really felt like I worked HARD, and I was mentally quite exhausted. When I looked at the images after the wedding though I realised that it’s at these times that I tend to create my favourite work, especially at receptions. I have to look harder for the right light, move around more to find the right moments, and anticipate better what’s going to happen. I ended up with a few of my favourite images of the season.
Some of you may have noticed that I have increased the size of the images on the blog. If a certain image is too large for your screen, try pressing ctrl/cmd – to reduce the size your browser shows content.
No apologies for the number of b&w images in this post. Enjoy.
The guys pulled off a pretty decent prank on Clayton with the lotto tickets they got for the wedding. He was quite convinced this will not only be the happiest day of his life, but also the most productive one financially.
