Just a little short of two years ago I shared this video from Profoto US featuring Justin and Mary Marantz. As so often happens with great artists, I got a little feedback that the Walk Through a Wedding series, while nobody questioned Justin and Mary's expertise, they did question how easy it was for them to produce images when there was a script. The comments essentially boiled down to the fact that these videos weren't from real weddings - there was no stress, no "Uncle Harry" getting in the way, no clock clicking the time away, etc.
So, I started "Walk the Talk" to show Justin and Mary's results with images that demonstrated they always practice what they preach. While I normally don't dig a lot out of the SCU archives, as an administrator on two different Facebook forums for wedding photographers, I've seen a lot of mediocre work. The passion of the artists is always top shelf, as they try and learn more - but often the images they're sharing demonstrate their technique has yet to catch up with their enthusiasm.
Last weekend we went to daylight savings time and it's now getting dark earlier. In looking through Profoto's archives I ran across the Walk Through a Wedding series, and since there are so many of you who might not have seen the videos two years ago, it's time to bring at least one of them back. "When It's Dark Outside" hits on some great techniques to help you capture even stronger images, even in the cold of winter.
I'm also sharing a few of Justin and Mary's images from "Walk the Talk." They're all at night and you know each one wound up as a feature image in each couple's album.
