傳統婚禮拍攝上,早上出門拍攝的地點都會是在女家屋企拍攝。隨著香港人生活水平上升,婚禮出門環境的要求繼而提高。加上為了方便男女家之間的車程,選擇酒店作為出門地點也是一個常見的做法。

最近有一些客人會問我意見,『Alex,那一間酒店拍攝出門效果會更好呢?』

市面上的酒店類型五花八門,每間酒店也有各自的品牌特色,而且選擇酒店作為出門地點也要因應個人地區,所以直接品評哪幾間酒店在拍攝上是最好,其實不太合適。不過我可以在實際拍攝上的經驗,分享一下有哪些條件滿足了就會是一間合適拍攝的出門地點。

第一點,首先以拍攝來說,光線是最重要的。所以拍攝場地有沒有充足陽光是很重要的。即使可以用閃光燈或錄像燈補光,但始終不及陽光來得自然柔和,所以一間採光做得好的房間絕對會對拍攝有大大的幫助。

第二點,如果想在拍攝的構圖和角度靈活多變,房間的大小和實用性都很重要。空間太狹窄的話,可以走動的位置就會太少,拍攝上自然可以做的變化就更少。

第三點是酒店附近或內部有沒有合適拍攝的空間。上午拍攝新郎的時候很多時都在出門地點附近。一些酒店雖然房間內的格局很合適拍攝,但室外對出是一條大馬路,可以拍攝地方不多。有些甚至是一些工廠大廈,拍攝出來的效果然後會遜色很多。

總括來說,可以酒店同時滿足以上三點的話,基本上也是非常合適作為出門地點拍攝的。

For traditional wedding photoshoot, the morning session will take place in the bride’s home. As the living standards of Hong Kong people rise, the requirements for the wedding environment are further enhanced. In addition, in order to facilitate the driving distance between men and women, it is also a common practice to choose a hotel as a place to go.

Recently, some clients will ask me, "Alex, which hotel will have better results for photoshoot?”

There are many different types of hotels on the market, each hotel also has its own brand’s features, and the location of the hotel also depends on personal preference. For me to make suggestions on hotels will not be deem appropriate. However, I can share from my experience on what criteria are for a suitable hotel for photoshoots.

First, lighting is the most important thing in terms of a photoshoot. Therefore, it is very important to have enough sunshine in the venue. Even if the flash or video light can be used to fill the light, it is not as natural as the sun, so a room with good lighting will definitely help the photoshoot.

Second, if you want to be flexible in the composition and angle of the shot, the size and practicality of the room are important. If the room’s space is too small, there will not be much room for movement and fewer angles variations that can be made.

The third point is whether there is another space suitable for photoshoot nearby or inside the hotel. In the morning session for groom’s photoshoot, I will often go to other places near the hotel. Although some hotels have great rooms for indoor photoshoot, the outdoor area is not suitable e.g. busy streets or roads, there are not many places suitable. Some hotels are even in industrial areas with a lot of factories. The photos will definitely be less spectacular.

In a nutshell, if the hotel can meet the above three points at the same time, it is basically very suitable as a place to go.
