I love the romance of these outtakes from my recent shoot for Montana Bride magazine, and I especially love seeing them in this classic black and white film look.  Our models did such a great job posing for us in a very romantic way that still looks like fashion.  This shoot was very inspiring to see the talent that we could assemble in Billings Montana.  We had such a great team!  More from this shoot coming soon!  See previous photos from this shoot here and here (http://blog.paulbellinger.com/2015/01/montana-wedding-photographer-fashion.html).

Tips for Brides:
I’ve got print copies of this year’s Montana Bride magazine!  This issue features our photos in a fashion editorial, one real Paul Bellinger Photography wedding in the Beartooth mountains, and our double page ad featuring wedding artwork from Kristen and Jake’s Red Lodge romance.  Get your copy and see all that Montana has to offer! Follow Montana Bride on facebook to find out where you can get copies in your city.

Tips for photographers:
These photos are lit with natural light from a large bank of windows about 20 feet from the models out of frame to the right.  There are also two large 4x8’ reflector out of frame to the camera left bouncing a lot of the window light back on to the shadow side of the models.  The windows at Billings Open Studio are North facing, so the light is always indirect and beautifully soft.  Bounce it back with a huge reflector and you’ve got some super soft light with a hint of directionality from the windows.  I have the same kind of light in my own studio and I love it.  In fact, North facing windows have been revered by generations of artists, painters, sculptors, and photographers for centuries.

  9. As an architectural photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area with more than twenty years' specialized experience photographing interior design, I have learned that it is important to know as much about your client as possible before you begin to create photographs for them. It is true that a good photographer can create wonderful photographs without in-depth knowledge of their client's personal tastes and working style, but anyone who has worked with the same team on three or four photo shoots will tell you that knowing more about the people involved will result in much better photographs. This is why architects and designers will often work with a photographer for many years at a time regardless of economic considerations or outside influences. 14 Architectural Photos That Will Make You Look At Buildings Differently
