2019 Behind the Scenes

February 10, 2020  •  2 Comments

We completed another awesome year and were privileged to be a part of so many weddings in 2019. Here is a little behind the scenes of what Korver Photography is all about!

Trying to blend into to background or possibly take a picture with a little green foreground. It is incredible what weather our equipment puts up with and still performs flawlessly wedding after wedding. Where is Waldo? It is all about getting different angles! Trust me, not sleeping. You can always count on Kaitlin to add something to a flower shot. People love to see previews of pictures! Tick prevention 101 - Tuck in those pants! Most years we get several ticks, this year.... zero! Photography is more than taking pictures, it is about connecting with people! Bill missed me so much, he made sure to give me some attention on the dance floor. Kaitlin, the stand in model. For certain shots, we want to make sure the image is worth taking and properly lit before we bring in our clients. Before we asked the bride to get into the tub, we wanted to make sure the image would we worth the effort. Good thing Kaitlin is such a good sport! The flag was getting in the way of our shots, so we moved it. Of course Kaitlin takes a picture of me moving it back! The best part of this "Fake Surprise" shot is when a caterer came out of a side door and saw Kaitlin making funny faces all by herself. They didn't see me setting up the shot from the balcony.

The best part of our photography is that we are constantly trying to improve our craft. We have some new plans for 2020 and can't wait to show everyone what we have learned!

Color photography started to become popular and accessible with the release of Eastman Kodak’s “Kodachrome” film in the 1930s. Before that, almost all photos were monochromatic – although a handful of photographers, toeing the line between chemists and alchemists, had been using specialized techniques to capture color images for decades before. You’ll find some fascinating galleries of photos from the 1800s or early 1900s captured in full color, worth exploring if you have not seen them already.

These scientist-magicians, the first color photographers, are hardly alone in pushing the boundaries of one of the world’s newest art forms. The history of photography has always been a history of people – artists and inventors who steered the field into the modern era.

So, below, you’ll find a brief introduction to some of photography’s most important names. Their discoveries, creations, ideas, and photographs shape our own pictures to this day, subtly or not.

It could be the motto of a legendary stage magician, but it’s actually a quote from Wes Anderson’s key grip, Sanjay Sami. An illusionist of a different sort, his long partnership with the filmmaker recently culminated in The French Dispatch, an anthology of short films about a Sunday supplement to a nonexistent Kansas newspaper, whose final segment features a quietly impossible 70-second tracking shot that Sami describes as “the most complicated shot I’ve ever worked on in my life.”

In addition to the sinuous camera moves scattered throughout the film, Anderson envisioned a showstopper for the movie’s finale, in which feature writer Roebuck Wright (Jeffrey Wright) visits Ennui-Sur-Blase’s chief of police (Mathieu Almaric) to write a profile of his personal chef, Lieutenant Nescaffier (Stephen Park). The tracking shot that ensues takes us through the police station, revealing various rooms, including a shooting range and a gymnasium, ending with Roebuck taking a wrong turn into solitary confinement, where a mobster’s accountant (Willem Dafoe) is being held. The entire time, Roebuck discusses Nescaffier’s cooking — “Police cooking … highly portable, rich in protein, eaten with the nondominant hand only, the other reserved for firearms and paperwork.” In the script, the scene reads like a more controlled and hyperkinetic version of the crane shots in The Life Aquatic that followed Steve Zissou & Co. throughout the bisected Belafonte.
