How important is, for wedding photographer, to be up-to-date
One of most important activity of wedding photographer is to keep himself up-to-date. Why that, in past days I seen works from most important international wedding photographers and I asked to myself may questions. After the basic ones I analysed where born the ideas. Why all photographers around the work make same things? It is every day more difficult to see differences of styles. And If that I talked is real, what a couple has to do for choose one or another?
This questions are not new but I found a sensible answer. Today, communications are very fast and become very easy to see works of other wedding photographers or other kinds of photography. That help us to memorise something from they. Not necessary you have to make a copy of another one, but when you make a creative work, you memory help you to create something you like and maybe you have seen form others. The cinema too has changed; the language and the coloro correction are continuously in progress. These changes have affect on the general taste and found your “comfort zone” in wedding pictures can influence the choose.
What remain at wedding photographer? How he can do to be chosen from couples? I think the “non sense” of this choose is the answer. The magic and the emotions on pictures are not in aesthetically cliches but on content of pictures. I think you feel emotions on situations and moment; when shoot, from where and some other variables are absolutely subjective. The same picture can evoke emotions for someone and nothing for somebody else. When the wedding photographer get the relevant quality has to pull out himself and talk with people that feel emotions for his pictures; they are his clients.
