Ein Funken Hochzeitsinspiration

Kennt ihr eigentlich schon Mognolia Rouge? Es ist ein Favorit unter vielen Inspirationsquellen. Es gibt dort so viele schöne Hochzeitsreportagen und Styled-Shoots zu sehen. Kate kuratiert seit ein paar Jahren die schönsten Bilder und stellt diese in eine Magazin-Format zusammen (ein Blog gibt es natürlich auch). Aber am besten schaut ihr selbst mal rein. 

Der Instagram Account von Magnolia Rouge ist auch zu empfehlen. 


Wer mag kann auch gerne mal in meinem Hochzeitsportfolio gucken

Depth of Field is dependent on 'distance to subject' too

You often hear or read that to achieve a shallow depth of field you need a fast lens, i.e. one with a large aperture. Like a f/1.4 or f/2.8. This is true in a lot of situations but not all. The depth of your focus field depends very much on how far the subject you are focusing on is from your camera.

Say I'm using a 50mm lens:

f/4.0 50 mm 1/100 s  ISO100

I could use an aperture of f/4 and photograph two models with their head more or less next to one another. If I stand about 6 feet back I'll have them both pretty much in focus.

f/8.0 50 mm 1/60 s  ISO320

But if came in closer, wanted to fill the frame and came up to about 2 feet; I'd focus on the front model, then the one behind would already be slightly out of focus, even if I stop down to f/8.

So keep the distance to your subject in mind when you are choosing your depth of field via your aperture setting. If your camera has a DOF preview button which stops down the lens so you can see the effect through the viewfinder use that get a feeling for the needed aperture.
