I shot landscape photography exclusively on a panoramic film camera from 2010 until 2017 before the astronomical increase in film costs made it no longer viable to continue.
Our own eyes see the world in the panoramic format but normal cameras do not. Yes you can crop an image after but its not the same as shooting it there and then in the cinematic long format. I’ve waited a long time for a digital camera that would allow me to shoot in the panoramic format and now I’ve finally found one, I’ll be bringing it along to weddings later in 2021 as soon as I start shooting again (fingers crossed soon enough!).
These cinematic style images are so well suited for framing and hanging on wall in large format. The images will be a mix of landscape wedding portraits. Like these images from Emma & Richards wedding and from Danielle & Martin’s wedding in Lough Rynn Castle.
The final two images in this post have been taken with the new camera, my better half helping me test out the camera. Due to the nature of the longer panoramic format, taking portraits with it takes practice, but when you get it right, it’s unbeatable!
