Neal Urban is known for his unique, award-winning wedding photography. His images have a real energy-saturated colors, dramatic poses, and a real magazine-style, polished look. Images like these don't happen by chance; there is a high level of skill involved, from the inception of the shot through to the final presentation. In this book, Neal Urban presents 60 of his best images, along with a lighting diagram, setup shot, or screen shot and an alternate image from the event. Readers can approach the book from cover to cover or zero in on specific portraits they might want to emulate with their own clients and focus their attention on the creative process used to create those images. In every one of the 60 two-page spreads, you'll get insights into the hows and whys behind Urban's genius. You'll discover what inspired the image concept, which lighting units and modifiers Urban selected to create the mood in the shot, and how the bride, groom, couple, and other major players in the day's events were posed to help tell the story of the day. One of the things that sets Urban's work apart is his HDR-high dynamic range-imaging. The complex approach allows photographers to produce final images contain a much-expanded range of tones, from white to black, than can be captured and reproduced with a "straight" image. As many of the striking images in this book were made with extensive postproduction work, readers will learn more tips and techniques for effective, efficient, artful image-editing than is found in the average book written for wedding photographers. Below written by the author My photography may be contemporary but I also cover the bases of photojournalism and the traditional family portraits. Not only do we provide a service but we also give them an experience of a lifetime. In the portrait session we direct and create moments that last a lifetime. I'd like to share that you can create world class images in your own hometown. You will learn how to create images and compete with the big shot wedding photographers who travel the world and shoot weddings in places like Italy, France and Spain.
