Post Production covid-19: day 362 | US: GA | info | act


It’s been a while since I photographed a wedding. I don’t really have the equipment to do it correctly right now, but I do have a good camera, some vintage lenses, and a modicum of talent. The lighting wasn’t ideal for Elaina and Travis’ ceremony, so I decided to go back though the images and give a few a bit more post love.

In the shot third-from-the-end, I missed the focus on what would have been a great photo. Well, give it a bit of an antique look and remove the stool, and it becomes a stunner—maybe one for a frame. For all of these, I used Nik’s Analog Efex Pro—a pretty cool piece of software. It allows for post-post production textures, lens effects, frames, and other color goodness that mimics vintage film cameras.

I almost did their entire set of photos that way. Again, all of these images are shot with the Zuiko 2.8/24 or the Zuiko 2/85.
