Great event photography brings photography skills front and center. It's about the craft, skill and an eye for light and composition, relaying on these more so than the subject. This is because you have to photograph what is there, at the same time recognising and capturing those moments to represent the event and provide the right interpretation for the consumers of your photographs.
It is of course also about the biggest cliche in photography; the decisive moment. Most photographers can make a good photograph from a good subject but I love and respect those photographers who get great photographs out of challenging situations. Here are a few photos from the last two event we covered.
