“This engagement session took place on an island in Sydney Harbour in the middle of a popular art exhibition. This was a great location because there was lots to see and do and the shooting just sort of fell in-between, helping the couple to stay relaxed and have a good time, which really came through in the images.”
Damien’s Photography Tip:
This session was shot late afternoon in the middle of Sydney Harbour at the art biennial. It turned out to be the perfect location because of all of the industrial sheds and machinery, which gave us the opportunity to really play around with the direction of the light and use of color.
Some of the shots (including the last one) were even lit using lighting insulations, which is handy when a flash won’t do!
So don’t be afraid of places you don’t know or have never been – keep an open mind, some places may just surprise you!
Damien used a Canon 5D MKII with a Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 and Sigma 85mm 1.4 lens to capture these images.
