Reportage Wedding Photography sometimes known as Candid is currently a very popular style of wedding photography in Adelaide. It’s been popular for some time, although many people may still think of it as a new style. Initially it wasn’t well received by all PaulMac wedding photography Adelaide as many weren’t happy as it broke the tradition of the posed Photograph.
In the early days of Wedding photography the Wedding photographer would have a big camera that had to be set up in a fixed position. This obviously didn’t allow for what’s now known as reportage or candid wedding photography and all the pictures were time consuming arranged, posed photographs. This meant all the pictures were very formal. As through the years cameras have got smaller, lighter and faster the style of Wedding Photography has been able to advance with the technology.
Suddenly all the Photographs didn’t need to be posed, the Adelaide Wedding Photographer could move amongst the guests with their camera, taking photographs as the opportunities arose. This also meant that the Wedding Photographer could capture images of people without them knowing and without them having to pose, that’s where the reportage style of photography was born.
