Relationship Between Personal Photography and Wedding Photography

Every few posts on my blog I’ll step away from wedding photography and post some fine-art photography that I’ve taken. I learned to excel in photography through my personal work and this has been a huge benefit for me in my wedding photography experiences. Yes, the two worlds can co-exist. After all, capturing a wedding implements many aspects of photography: portraiture, landscapes, photojournalism, and even macro. The knowledge and understanding I gain of photography through personal work and weddings is reciprocal.

Here is a photo I took last month of Soco Falls in Cherokee, North Carolina. For the camera geeks: this is 4 separate exposures stitched together in Photoshop. The camera was on a tripod and for each exposure I moved the camera to cover a “section” of the scene. I was fairly close to the waterfall and I wanted this shot to look really wide to pull the viewer in.
