Against the light

artistic bridal pose – wedding photo posing tips

This is a pose widely used by many photographers and a great idea if achieved correctly. I would ask the bride to look though the window and shoot from the back. I would setup the exposure somewhere in between the dark back and strong light coming from outside in order to capture as much detail as possible. Exposing for the light will underexpose the bride and exposing for the bride will overexpose the window. I do not want the extremes as I still want to see some details on teh bride’s dress as it is more important rather then seeing the neighbours through the window. The image can be adjusted in post production to suit your taste.

This image is one of the most artistic shots you can get with the bride and it can represent a symbol.  This image represents mystery of what is coming in the future, going to the light, optimism without trying to sound too deep.

I never miss this, it takes sometimes to move the furniture around in a tight space, but it is all worth it. Classic shot, important pose.

sometimes you so not have curtain handy. Does not matter, ask the bride to put her hands on the window

I believe you need to get the right balance between the light and dark as this will have the extremes in it. Obviously, you can adjust the exposure to suit your personal taste.
