If you want to become a wedding photographer, there are a lot of tips that are inescapable.
Here’s what you need to know.
Use the wrong camera for every occasionPhotographer David Bresson, who teaches photography at George Washington University, says he’s learned that using the wrong type of camera for a wedding shoot can ruin a shoot.
Bressor’s photography career has been influenced by a wide range of subjects including the Beatles, the White House, the Vatican, and even the U.S. Capitol.
Bressingon says that, like any photographer, you need the right camera for your needs, and this can be difficult to learn.
“The biggest mistake photographers make is not getting the right kind of lens,” he says.
“You’re trying to shoot in the dark with a Nikon D800, and then it comes out the other side and the next day you can see that it’s not quite what you had in mind.”
Bressors advice for photographers is to take photos with a wide-angle lens, and get the best angle you can to get the shot you want.
Use a lens that works for youWhen it comes to wedding photography, Bressons advice is to shoot with a lens you can work with for the entire duration of the shoot.
“There are a ton of different types of lenses, so you need different kinds of focal lengths and focal lengths of different lenses to be able to work with different subjects,” he said.
“If you’re shooting a wedding, you’re probably going to be shooting for the whole day, and it makes it more difficult to do this.
So instead, you want the lens that you can use for the rest of the day.”
Shoot with the right body The photographer who shoots weddings at the top of the market can afford a high-end lens and a super wide angle lens.
But when it comes down to it, it’s all about the photographer.
“Most photographers have a lot more money than most of us,” Bresser says.
“[They] tend to shoot at higher aperture settings because they want to get a wider angle.
But if you want a nice wide angle, you don’t want to go wide.
You want a smaller aperture.
So it depends on what you want.”
Keep your subject in focus Bressot says that you should be careful with the subject in your shots, as well as the framing.
“I’m a little bit of a purist on the subject,” he explains.
“A lot of weddings have a big, big table and a lot people in the front, so I’m trying to make sure that I have the subjects at the center and the middle of the table.”
He says that when you’re working on a wedding shot, it makes sense to keep the focus on the person in front.
“When I shoot a wedding I try to keep all the people around the table in the frame, and make sure I’m not looking through the eyes of people,” he adds.
“So I’m keeping the focus the center of the room and the center part of the photo.”
Use good lightingWhen it’s time to shoot the wedding, it might not be the most practical time to use your camera to capture a scene.
“Sometimes you have to be very conscious of lighting,” Besser says, adding that he prefers to use a wide angle or telephoto lens for his weddings.
“As an example, my wife’s wedding is in a small room with a little little bit more space, so if you’re not in the room when it’s raining, that can be a little hard to get your shot.”
Be patient and be prepared to go back for a follow-up shootThe photographer who uses the best quality gear in a wedding can make a big difference in the end result.
“With the kind of wedding you’re planning, there’s a lot that you’re going to need in terms of your lighting, your setting, your subject, and your composition,” Bens said.
But he advises that if you are a beginner, or you are not in a hurry, you can try to shoot a few photos to get used to the process.
“Then, if you can shoot your first couple of weddings and then you can start shooting again, it will take some getting used to,” he added.
“It will take a little longer to get comfortable with it.”
Have fun with your shotsThe most important thing to remember when it come to wedding photos is that you are an amateur, so shoot for fun and fun.
“In my experience, when you go to a wedding you can be shooting a lot in a day,” Brest says.
You can shoot photos of people and flowers, or even people sitting on their chairs, and you can capture the moment.
