The days of our lives whip by so quickly it’s hard to measure them all. It seems no time between the moment you’re a young person just starting out on your own, and the moment you find yourself with a family. Then before you know it, you’re waving goodbye as the last chick leaves the nest, drives away to college, job or to begin a family of his or her own. If it doesn’t seem that way to you at the moment, it’s a good bet you’re young. Those with a few miles beneath the tires know; it all goes by too fast.

And once it’s gone, all you’re left with is the memories; those moments that lend life meaning, the signposts that mark our brief passage through this world. And when those years have passed us by, all that remains are the memories; those moments that give life meaning, the road signs that denote our speedy passage through this world. Sadly, memories fade. We forget—was the old Dodge grey or green? Did Aunt Edna wear stripes or polka-dots to my daughter’s wedding? Was my son really the toe-headed boy I remember him to have been? Was there ever a time when grandpa had all his hair?.

With the advent of photography—believe it or not, as early as the 4th Century—capturing those moments became easier. Of course, photography in its early days was a laborious process, one involving complicated equipment, noxious chemicals and expensive components. All to obtain a photo far inferior to what the cheapest camera phone can produce today. In the times we now live, digital photography permits even a rank amateur to create acceptable pictures of commonplace family events; the church get-together, the birthday party, the visit to grandma’s house. But for extraordinary events, those whose very nature marks them as historical—at least in a family sense—professional studios such as Ulladulla Photography and Forever Memories Photography are still your best bet.

Wedding Photography in particular cries out for the professional touch. Images of a wedding should be as gorgeous and enduring as the event itself; images captured forever, like an insect in time’s unassailable amber. Studios such as Ulladulla Photography generate portfolios of significant family events that will be cherished for generations to come, images filled with the stirring moments that comprise that most important of days. Likewise, other images demand the expert approach. Portraiture, baby photos, sporting events and teams, corporate images, parties, formal events…all may benefit by being captured by a professional photographic studio. Most studios maintain an online presence where you can find examples, descriptions of services, and more.

The Issues of Natural Light for a Wedding Photographers

There are two ways to take a picture: making use of natural light, i.e. light that hasn’t particularly been produced by the photographer, and using synthetic light, which could usually be from a flash head above the camera body .

Well above 90  percent of the images we take at a wedding are lit by organic light, for numerous good reasons.  The main benefit for us is that we’re able to display our clientele images from the day that actually present the day as it was. For whilst flash can occasionally provide a technically far more pleasing picture, it is of course ‘false’ light. Images that have been taken with a flash head offering some or most of the light don’t exhibit how a scene really looked, but how it appeared for the 1/100th of a second that the flash was illuminating it.
