Story

This shot was completely unplanned. I was aiming to produce a really lovely romantic image where my couple were under the umbrella in the rain. But when I noticed the wind starting to pick up a stepped back, switched cameras with the one that had the 24mm lens. I then quickly put my camera in burst mode because I anticipated what was going to happen. Shortly after I positioned myself the wind picked up again this time harder than before and I started taking photos as the groom tried to control the out of control umbrella in the wind. I felt bad for not helping him, but I knew I had to keep shooting.

Composition

Center FramedLeading LinesWideFull Body

If you ever find yourself in a similar scenario where you can’t really control the scene, using a wide lens helps to keep things in centre focus, so that if anything was to cross your frame or if the subject moves suddenly you can still have everything in frame.

Olguin Photography

Photographer Sydney, Australia Sony 24mm
I’m a husband, father of 3 and an avid coffee lover. My wife and I both run the business together and we have been since 2009. My wife (Cassie) works on the finance side of the business (the unseen parts) and juggles the three kids when I’m away on weekends shooting weddings (yes, she’s Wonder Woman). Myself (Alejandro) am the primary photographer. I deal with couples directly and I also still do all the editing myself. YES, I actually still enjoy it would you believe!? I really believe the editing is an important part of putting your final touch and creativity into the photos before delivery. Our business started back in 2008/2009 but back then I used to shoot primarily real estate and commercial work for a graphic design agency I used to work for, which then became my main clientele and who I shot for regularly. That slowly started shifting to weddings back in 2013 when I realised how much I LOVED documenting stories and I’ve now been shooting weddings full time since 2015.
