A little something I tried …

Last year during the winter I second shot for Jan Dorfling for a rainy, rainbow filled day with a pretty bride in a short pretty wedding dress. For some reason, I didn’t keep the images of that day. Don’t know whether that was intentional or if I just deleted them by accident. But there is one thing I didn’t delete. This video.

Every now and again, there comes along a wedding where I just feel so inspired! Whether it is the couple that cannot keep their eyes off each other or just the mood of the wedding, I don’t know what does it! But during those times I put down my Photographer hat for a bit… and I take a video.

Now please don’t be too harsh a judge. This was my very first time editing video and I spent about a week just reading up and watching Youtube videos on how to work with Adobe Premier. I’m actually darn proud of myself that I got it to look like this! So if it looks amateurish – that’s because it is! And it’s by no means something I do frequently. If it doesn’t make sense to you, that’s ok too :) It was a spur of the moment decision as I watched the moment between the bride and her father. So this video actually only portrays about 10 minutes before we left!

Please have a look and let me know what you think!

Music: “Teardrop” by Massive Attack.

    Alana Meyer - You are so so talented and this just confirms your creativity once again. You see things in ways others don’t see them. I even love the way it goes in and out of focus at then end because it lends itself to this piece. So beautiful Yolande. Well done!!ReplyCancel

    Lomie Tapela - Hi, I think your video looks professional, not amateur at all. I like the switch between the stills and the motion. It is very personal, very touching and amazing. You are on to something and should continue.ReplyCancel
