ROUND 2 THEME: Fine art –Open to interpretation, fine art can cover any part of a wedding that has been shot with fine art in mind. If you‘re shooting in a fine art style then you‘re more likely to think about just the moment that’s taking place and consider your surroundings, light and technique even more than you normally would. Think of those shots that you have a bit more control of, like the time you have shooting the newly wed couple for example, or when you‘ve tried a new technique in the hope of achieving a more ‘arty’ image.
The closing date is 18 June 2019, 11.59pm. The results will be in issue 68, out 19 July 2019.
