Suggestions for creative night-time shots

Suggestions for creative night-time shots Credit: www.davidkhphotography.comQ – What are your suggestions for creative night-time shots?

"I think every photographer should aim to get at least one amazing night-time shot of their couple. It will leave them with a great lasting impression, and if you get it right, it could be the shot that stands out from the rest. Your photographer will need either a video light (I use the ice light) or they can use off-camera flash to help with producing a creative night portrait.

"Your supplier should get you to pose, light you with video light and aim for the rest of the scene to be completely black, producing a classic minimalistic portrait.

"Alternatively, you could do the same as above but face each other with your noses barely touching. Put a coloured gel on the video light and place a light behind you, close to your faces but out of shot. This will create a beautiful outline of your faces.

"Another option is to stand four feet in front of a wall, facing each other with the flash behind you pointed at the wall. This will create a wonderful silhouette and is a very simple but creative technique.

"If you’re fortunate enough to have booked a grand venue that is beautifully lit at night, take the opportunity to have some photos in front of it.

"Inside the venue, try to look for interesting angles, use mirrors as a reflection and ways that light can be used to frame you."
