Evening wedding reception pictures in Gateshead with DJ lights

Interesting lighting makes all the difference when photographing an evening wedding reception.  or any other subject for that matter.  Its not easy to capture light within dark locations though. A compact camera flash will just white out all the beautiful colours and leave the image totally flat, so you can’t rely on family and friends to get good evening wedding reception pictures, though most professional wedding photographers will know how to capture the colours by underexposing  and bouncing the flash, so if you appreciate beautiful photos, it is a good idea to use an all-day wedding photographer to get these kinds of images.

Such fun!

Almost like an impressionist oil painting! Like Mediterranean sun shining through a bamboo trellis...

Well, that is how my artistic mind views these images, comparing them to memories of sunlight streaming through the vine leaves and clusters of grapes hanging on a slatted  bamboo or wooden pergola in Greece, with the light patterns cast creating oil paintings in my mind – and even in reality (one of mine of such a theme is in a private collection in Germany) – as the shadows cast dramatise the remaining light.

These evening wedding guests sit peacefully in the semi-darkness, punctuated occasionally by bursts of light. They seem a little sad, or maybe just reflective on the day's events...

    Hi Indian DJ. I see you are a genuine DJ so thought I would reply to you. Reel Life Photos is the natural extension of my art: I have been taking photos since I was 11 years old, and was taught the basics by my father, who was taught by his father before him, and even my great granddad was a photographer.

    I initially became an artist, painting portraits in oils on canvass and quick pencil sketches, so photography is my second career, but then its good to do different things throughout your life…
    xx Elaine
