Wedding photos in b&w


When I view wedding photographers galleries from Coventry area, I could honestly say that time of black & white photography passed away.
Bear in mind, that the color photography became popular in 70’s XIX but first experiments took place in 1855 by James Clerk Maxwell. Now, in time of digital photography, not to many people, especially those who use smart phones or similar devices as main tool to take photos even do not think about B&W photos.

Similar situation is in wedding photography.

I started my journey with photography many years ago from B&W, and I can still appreciate qualities of that kind of images.
That’s why My clients can find a lot of black & white photos in my galleries. It’s enrich, and nicely co-operate with color photography photos.

Below you will find some examples of B&W photos from wedding photo sessions, for more please visit:

MK Wedding Photography at The Chase Hotel, Coventry


The Chase Hotel, and MK Wedding Photography during bride preparation.

Coventry has many weddings venues around, and it was first time for MK Wedding photography to take wedding photos in that beautiful old hotel.

I decided to take photos without flashgun, and additional external source of light, only  photography with ambient light flowing to the dark room through the window. To be honest, little gaps between curtains, which give small patches of light… but what quality of light.rossy samples (5 of 9)rossy samples (6 of 9)

This time we were in Grey Hound Inn in Coventry, next to Coventry canal. Wedding of MR and Mrs S, freedom, no posing, it was more reportage than traditional wedding photo session. We walked around, and I (MK Wedding Photography) took photos of them. Finally I captured plenty of amazing wedding shots of bride and groom.

The light was perfect, I didn’t use off camera flashes, I didn’t use any flashes. It what comes straight from my Nikon D4s.

Simply portrait photo



Few days ago I mentioned on my Facebook page – Marek Kuzlik Photography that I’m going to show,explain how I made this image. Generally it was simply set up. Beautiful model, beautiful make-up and hairdressing, grey background and 2 flash gusn. first as a main light, it was octa 120cm set on the side (definitely less than 45 degrees) and soft circle light on background

tutorial portrait01

First photo, RAW or NEF because I use Nikon system.  The image was underexposed which helped me in post processing to achieve final effect.

tutorial portrait03

photo no:2 after little adjustments on shadows, lights, and contrast I used – adjustment brush in LR to lighten lights and contrast on hair.

tutorial portrait04

no:3   eye – little lightening plus I removed some skin imperfections but are not marked on image above.

tutorial portrait05

No 4 Radial filter for end of job.

tutorial portrait06

And finally after 5 minutes, maybe less I achieved expected effect.

As You can see, you don’t need expensive lights, professional studio. You need some good ideas and use your imagination.


Photography VS Photoshopgraphy


On the end of March this year, I was on The Photography Show on NEC, where I met, maybe I should write I stopped close to a famous UK’s photographer (I will not give his name here). Some of You saw his photographic tutorials on You Tube. On the Nec’s show his show was about “how to turn totally shit photo in to beautiful image after editing in PS“.

Other perfect examlpe which shows that PS, not a digital camera is treated as a master tool in photos creation is work of  my favourite… better to write ex-favourite male Russian portrait photographer. Few days ago I saw her photos before Photoshopography. I was shocked! I didn’t expected that she, recognized photographer on international photography market can do things like that. (I can not publish this photos in my post but maybe You have seen them on Fecebook )

I use PS  like 99% of photographer around the world. I use this software as a tool to little adjustments on raw files not like main one and the only one tool in image creation. Below You will find one from many portraits of my daughter. It was Nikon D4s with 70-200 f2.8, and probably I took this photo on 200mm f2.8 ? but I.m not sure. Anyway subject is sharp, and background with nice strong bokeh .   On photos below You can see that jpg didn’t need much job during editing to achieve nice and attractive look. not like in described samples. (I’m soooo sad that I can not attache this files here but I think You have seen them somewhere on web)

I believe that some of You will leave a comment, share your point of view about present photography, and photoshopography.
