Photograph of the Week Huddersfield

Photograph of the Week Huddersfield - Shot of the week 2013

Photograph of the Week Huddersfield - All too often a lot of great pictures go unseen by visitors to the site. This is usually because most of my work is shown behind closed doors or are located on password protected parts of the site. I thought as something of a challenge to me, and also as a great way of showing off work that would ordinarily remain unseen, why not create another part of the site for just that!

I intend to show off a mish-mash of images throughout the year. I imagine that my Wedding and Portrait work will be the dominant source of my "Shot of the Week" work, but I fully intend to display other photos too. I'm extremely busy with my training and very often find myself especially on one-to-one's taking photographs in unusual places. When I say unusual places I am of course referring to unusual for a predominant wedding and portrait photographer! I will also share my personal work too, although due to my diary "me time" is a rarity!

Not all the work will appeal to everyone, I just want to show off pictures that just conjure up personal memories of a time, event or place for me! If my choice fails to impress then so be it!

As well as showing my work, I'll give a brief description of how I took the shot, my camera settings and lighting used etc.

Feedback as always appreciated.

Beautiful Wedding Photography by Gary & Paula Gough

Above: F4 - 1/80 - ISO 1000 - 24mm (EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

This picture is extra special due to the effort from the Bride & Groom to get it. The floor was wet, it was actually raining too. The long walk across muddy Sheep poo grass didn't help matters either! It was more than worth it in the end.

I could of added a dozen or so of their images to this section. Their wedding time with us was amazing. We spent an hour and a half walking through Leeds City Centre. This shot makes it here due to very challenge the shot offered. I wanted to photograph the guys when it was dark so I could balance the ambient street and building lights with flash used off camera. Using Off Camera Flash can greatly enhance your images if you know how to set them up that is!!!

Photographed during Jennifer and Alex’s Wedding  at the Hazlewood Castle.

I bet there are very few photographers that will take the time to get a shot like this. Simple you might think, but as it takes a little effort on the side of the photographer you'll very rarely see a shot like this at Hazlewood. The little effort includes moving furniture and shoehorning guests away from the comfort of the cozy chairs. Not much effort indeed but it's quite a lot of work to a lazy photographer! I'm far from a lazy photographer hence I relish at the chance to get shots like this!

I had to include two 🙂
Photographed during Katherine & Nigel's Wedding at The Mansion, Leeds.

1st above - It's not often Brides are photographed from this acute angle. The lighting is especially low which forced a very high ISO but what a result!

2nd above - I just had to include this image too. The delicate pose and tough lighting conditions really make this image a tuffy to get right. I think I nailed it though 🙂

Photographed during Rachael & Richard's Wedding at the beautiful grounds of Nostell Priory.

I just love this shot for a culmination of a few aspects of the picture: The Pose is delicate, the archway looks stunning and it's topped off with a cheeky bit of light on the back wall. I like it so much I currently have it framed in the studio.

Photographed at Rilpey Castle during a Portfolio Training day. I run these training days monthly, see my Training website for more info.

Shooting at high ISO's using nothing but poor natural light makes a shot like this quite difficult to master. I really like the image, hence it's inclusion here. I took  loads of stunning shots on the day that could of been "Shot of the Week" TAKE A LOOK

Photographed at Adele & Chris’s wedding at the Woodlands Hotel in Leeds

This quirky image is a single shot set up as you see it - It's not created in Photoshop

I took this photograph for a bit of fun, and it was just because the poor "Best Man" took so much stick all day for being short (ish!)

As it's a little cheesy, I posted it on Facebook to get other peoples reaction to it. It caused quite a stir! If I'm honest I was amazed at how many people was positive towards the picture - Either way, I like it, hence the reason for its inclusion into "Shot of the Week"

This has made shot of the week because of the dramatic lighting, pose and the colour clash between Kelly's Hair and the blue in the clouds. There were a few pictures from Kelly's shoot that could of made "Shot of the Week" but I chose this one in the end.

Not the easiest shot in the world to take, kids and animals and all that!!!

It took me 5 attempts to get Scooby and Cooper to both look at me at the same time, they did in the end and that's what counts 🙂

Photograph of the Week Huddersfield - Shot of the Week


The following were shot earlier this year at Fountains Abbey during a Wedding Training day with Pete Bristo and me.

Above: F2.8 - 1/200 - ISO 3200 - 85mm (EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

This was shot utilising just natural light. It's amazing just how my Canon 5D MK II handled the noise! I tried filling-in with flash but it just didn't feel right. I also back-lit the bride with a speedlite but again I just preferred the natural light.

My assistant threw the Veil in the air then disappeared behind the columns in case you were wondering 🙂

Above: F2.8 - 1/1600 - ISO 400 - 150mm (EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

Taken on the same day at Fountains Abbey this was also shot using just the natural light. I think the black and white grungy feel really works here too. There's just something dramatic with a bride on steps.

The most important thing to remember with lighting like this is to ensure the subject is never overexposed. With so much light creeping onto the bride from the left it's all too easy to lighten the image too far!

Above: F2.8 - 1/400 - ISO 200 - 100mm (EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

A simple yet very effective shot using natural light only. This is a great example of less is more! A delicate pose and great use of light falling from the right is just about all that was required to create a great shot! Add to this the wide open (2.8) aperture to help make the bride pop from the background.

Above: F2.8 - 1/60 - ISO 1600 - 85mm (EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

The one thing I like with this image is the lighting - It was shot during the Brides prep utilising an overhead bathroom light. Works for me!

Above: F22 - 1/125 - ISO 100 - 24mm (EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

This is a single photo, shot using my "Off Camera Flash" technique - NOT HDR

This was a commercial photo shoot shot on location earlier this year for a dance/entertainment company . I used three speedlite's off camera, one at the front and one left and right. Due to the midday high-summer time of the shoot I had to ramp up the power of the speedlite's to full power. Shooting this way enabled me to create this quite dramatic image and keep the sky form overexposing.

Priceless!

Above: F4 - 1/125 - ISO 800 - 58mm (EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM) Manual - Canon  EOS 5D Mark II

You couldn't set this up if you tried! Third eye gold. I noticed the two guys falling about laughing at  something, it didn't matter. The second I fired I knew it was a gem!
