I love flash photography. I think it’s super creative and gives a lot of shots an extra bit of pop. That being said, the above was taken with no flash whatsoever! I know! What was I thinking?
Ok, so here’s the deal. My Monday wedding informs me, as I’m setting up for the day, that one of their guests has a severe case of epilepsy and as such, I won’t be able to use my flash for the entire wedding. Cue two minutes of panic…..now. These are the things you tell your photographer before the day of. Okay, so really, it’s not a big deal. A lot of photographers never use a flash. Still, I watched with trepidation as we got closer and closer to sunset. But to my surprise…I had a lot of fun. The fundamentals of photography are the same with or without flash, and for once, i got to strip down to just be me and my camera. I simply love the above shot, and will be the first to admit that a flash would have ruined the entire thing. Sometimes all you need is a little push to get you going in the right direction…never mind the mild cardiac arrest.
