ALBUM PAGE IDEAS
Notice in the following examples how a simple change of crop, pose
and expression can then give us a completely new spread of the album.
I didn’t actually take many more images at this location than what you
see here. Overall, I took fewer images but all of them were saleable and
were conducive to be sold as spreads in an album. I try to make every
shot count. I also encourage you to design the pages of the album as
you shoot. Once you take the first shot at a new location, think about
the next photograph that would complement it in an album spread and
match its mood, sensibility and color palette.
TECHNIQUES in PRACTICE
FEATURING ONE BUT
Here’s a different way of using
two existing light sources in your
environment. Although the groom
occupies more space in the frame, the
viewer’s attention is held on the bride
as the light on her lighter skin tone
is brighter than the groom’s. This is a
good example of using both bride and
groom together but featuring the bride.
