As wedding photographers, one of the things we feel the need to do, is to constantly re-invent ourselves. That means constant learning; be it shooting techniques, lighting techniques, post processing, or just improving and strengthening our visual aesthetics so we can see shots before we click. And due to the nature of wedding photography, there isn’t a whole lot of practice or experimentation that can be done in-the-field so to speak. When a couple hires us, we don’t go in and “try” stuff. At the same time, we know that we need to have an ever-growing arsenal of shots and techniques in our belt to be able to pull them out and use them in tight spots.
Consequently, we are always using each other as guinea pigs to try out new stuff on our off days. A good by-product of having to do this is that we can end up with some shots of ourselves that we would otherwise never take. Interestingly enough, we both fight to be behind the lens rather than in front of.
We took the following shots in this little corner in our building gym. This is what the corner actually looks like (sorry about the noise; iPhone picture):
