Initially, before the photo shoot, I already had a clear idea and understanding of the image of the upcoming photo shoot. Knowing that in the near future I will shoot a wedding for Alina and Petit, I suggested that they hold a pre-wedding love story in nature so that they would have photos from two events. Having received a positive response, we are committed to preparing the image. The basis lay 2 elements: location and bike. The image itself was complemented by the color scheme for clothes by Alina - a blue dress, balloons with helium, accessories and other small attributes. Also, I additionally found a skate for Petit in blue, what would be a combination. The loving couple is not very ordinary: Alina is a miniature girl, not more than 1.6 m tall, and Peter has a height of about 2 m, which in turn also adds to this photo shoot of love story on the nature of fabulousness.
At the planning stage of the image photo session of love story on nature, I already understood that the residence of the Mezhyhiria is best for this. An important point was the choice of the day of the week. As you probably guessed from the photo, it was a weekday. For this reason, there are no unauthorized people in the frame. The weather forecast was optimistic, sunny warm weather, which in turn was supposed to provide a soft sunset light. We approved that the shooting will take place in two locations: the first is a long road, along the fence from the central entrance to Mezhyhiria. Here we will work out the scene with the bike and skate, and the second location is a golf course, on which we will take a photo in motion and embrace.
For a love story photo shoot in nature, we chose a weekday, sunset time, and the residence Mezhyhiria. All these 3 factors contributed to a comfortable shooting process and obtaining the intended result. 3 hours before the shooting of love story, Alina went to the makeup artist, where she was styled and made up. At this time I went around the city and collected pre-agreed props: a skate board, a hat with a blue ribbon, I rented a dress, I bought balloons with helium, flowers and a decor on the wheel of a bicycle. Then I stopped at Alina and Petya and we went to Mezhigorye for a photo session. Upon arrival, I rented a bike, which I booked in advance. At the time of the beginning of the photo session of love story in the mezhyhirye, the clock was 19:00, and the sun began to set. For the whole shooting we had 2.5 hours. I myself conducted a photo shoot at Canon 7D Mk II + Sigma 18-35 f/ 1.8. In fact, it is a high-aperture wide-angle lens with interchangeable focal length, it gave me the opportunity to make both general plans and high-sharp portrait shots on a crop camera. In 2.5 hours we completely coped with the task and even exceeded it.
As a result of the summer photo shoot of love story in Mezhyhiria, I took about 300 pictures in RAW format. After uploading the source material into Lightroom and proceeding to the selection, I deleted half, since many moments were captured in dynamics and movement. During the shooting in motion, some pictures may be blurred, it was their other marriage that was removed. After the selection I started painting the series, it took me about 3 hours. Aligning white balances from bright sun to sunset is not the fastest process. Raised sharpness, increased the saturation of black, adjusted the grit and intensity of key shades (blue and green). After the complete series was dyed, she began to select a series of 30-40 photos for detailed retouching and printing. Retouching spent about 3.5-4 hours, on average, for 10-15 minutes in the photo. Removed defects on the skin and people caught in the frame. The result of the project “photo shoot love story in nature” is presented on this page.
