The workshop with David Beckstead continued after a lovely lunch at Tanums Gesgifveri with an outing to Strömstad Spa & Resort. The surroundings were gorgeous, so I was more than a little surprised to find out that we would be photographing at the parking garage. I must admit that I had never considered a parking structure as an appropriate backdrop for wedding portraits, and I hadn’t given it a second glance.
It really was eye-opening to see the shots that David Beckstead composed. I’d like to believe that despite 16 photographers pushing and shoving to get the same shot, I came up with some unique compositions too. (Actually, being a group of Swedes and Norwegians, there was very little pushing and shoving–it was all very civilized.)
I do a lot of bridal portraits, and portraits of the couple together, but usually my grooms decline to be photographed alone. Hopefully now I can convince them how cool if could be!
