What is Fine Art Photography?
Although there isn’t an exact definition of fine art photography, it involves certain characteristics and techniques that come with an experienced photographer. The photographer must have a vision they’d like to execute, and it requires experience and technical and editing skills to achieve, especially at a fast-paced event.
Fine Art/Cinematic Wedding Photography
Fine Art / Cinematic wedding photography is a style/genre of wedding photography that emphasizes the artistic qualities of the images. Fine art wedding photographers often use natural or dramatic lighting, selective focus, and shallow depth of field to create images that capture and convey emotions.
Although most fine art wedding photographers are highly skilled and experienced, what drives a consistent artistic vision is how passionate the photographer is about their art.
Creating Drama with Dramatic Lighting in Fine Art Photography
Fine Art photographers seek to create unique images by using lights, shadows, and composition to create drama in an image. Dramatic lighting will elevate an image's look and feel.
We aspire to be more intentional with our photography; we want to go further than what you’d expect a regular event coverage to look like. Here at Thania Auri Photography, we seek to display our couple's love through romantic imagery. From our angles to our composition and lighting, we look to enhance those natural romantic moments between our couples.
