Jason Mark says:

“The couple is one of my previous wedding couples. I wanted to have a catch up with them, as well as, work on something a little different. So, I thought they would be perfect. We still went for a pretty stylised look and feel; this style suit both them as a couple, also. I wanted something very close, emotive and to capture them embracing.”

Jason Mark’s Photography Tip Using a Camera Meter:

For this shoot, I was going for a very emotive feel. So, I knew I wanted to underexpose these shots. Some of the images were even shot up to 2 stops under the camera meter reading, which was key in allowing me to bring out the detail in the sky and get that moody feeling I wanted.

Because of this, I chose the Sony A7 as my camera body because it has an amazing dynamic range, which would allow me to effectively pull off the technique I was aiming for.

I also knew I wanted to get closer shots as well as wide, landscape images. For lens choice, I knew the 35mm Zeiss was ideal for this. Which truthfully was rather convenient because at the time this was taken, this was the only lens that I had. (Since then, I have moved on and I am back with Canon and Fuji.)
