Want to avoid having dated looking pictures in your wedding album?
Then avoid these 3 trends when you see them in portfolios!
Whilst there is a plethora of photographers offering their services to clients, many professionals have experimented with different editing styles in order to attract the attention of potential customers and stand out from the 'sea' of people who curry big and heavy cameras around.
In this attemt though they have reduced significantly the 'life expectancy' of the photo.
Black and white photos with one coloured item on it. I mean, yes it was trendy some years ago but come on now, enough is enough!
Crooked photos: Pretty much every photographer does them when they are new to the job and it is okay to do one every now and then but when get your pictures back from your photographer and every second photo is crooked and tilted then you might need to find a chair as you will definitely start to get dizzy!
Filters. Filters age the photos much quicker that they would otherwise. Have you seen photos taken 5 years ago when the 'lovely' Sepia effect (tinting effect) was in full swing? They now look so dated!
Imagine having spent a month's salary on a professionally made album and 5 years down the line it looks like it belongs to the Far West era. What a disappointment!
Making the right choice.
Don't treat photographer's selection as if you are deciding how to wear your hair at the dinner party. Just remember how you feel when you look old photos of you with the haircut that once you were so proud of!
