We had this gorgeous wedding in Puglia where right after the ceremony, the couple had planned to climb inside a really nice vintage car and drive to our little couple shoot location. Since the car meant a lot to our couple, we made sure to capture some moments they had inside it. We found a beautiful road surrounded by olive trees and asked them to drive up and down a few times just so we had the chance to get really cool angles as the light was also really, really nice.

Composition

Why I composed the way I did

It was important for me to show the feeling of freedom with this image and let the imagination go wild. Driving off into the sunset with the hands in the air and the cans rattling were all part of the plan. We wanted to keep this shot wide enough to show everything: the car, the cans, the hands, the sun through the trees and of course the road. Finally, the road naturally creates leading lines which help bring the viewer through the image.

The Car

Focus description

I focused on the car with a single point since I wanted to make sure that the car was always in focus. It was also a larger object in comparison to the couple and this was important since the couple was driving away from us. That being said, they didn’t drive so fast but we still chose to use continuous tracking to increase our chances of getting the shots in focus.

Light &
Exposure

How the light was used

The light was really amazing; it wasn’t very strong but it was quite hazy and white even though we were quite close to sunset. We found a spot where we could block the sun with the trees and adjust ourselves slightly so we could let a little bit of the light hit the lens (creating a flare).

How I edited this image

I edit this picture in Adobe Lightroom with our Preset Josi. I adjust the white balance and the light and shadow a bit

I edited this picture in Lightroom and very simply applied my Josi Preset, adjusted the exposure and white balance as well as the light & shadows. Sometimes an image doesn’t need much editing to work out just fine – and that is exactly the case here.

Challenges & Solutions

Events that were challenging during the shoot

The hardest part was capturing the moment as it’s hard to keep doing it over and over again. We had to make sure everything was right: the composition, the light, our settings, etc…

Solutions I found

I had this picture in my mind before we took it, and so it was much easier to get myself into position and set up to take the shot. It wasn’t so much an “on the spot” image.

Advice

Don’t be afraid to shoot a lot of pictures. Switch your camera to burst mode and just let your subjects drive into your frame. You can always cull down later, removing the shots that didn’t work and/or make a pretty cool GIF out of it all.
