sunset-1057463_1920 (1)

As a photographer like the Scottish Wedding Photographer who will be covering a beach wedding, it is important that you get to capture not only the beauty of the wedding as a celebration of love but also the beauty of the setting that is the beach.

The natural light from the sun will already take care of the lighting for you. On your part, you don’t have to think about these things and let the photographer take care of making that sunlight work on those beautifully lighted photos.
  2. Scenic venue – one does not have to spend or worry much on the interiors. The beach itself provides a natural and artistic scenery that you can tap to provide a beautiful and natural backdrop for your wedding. Best of all, it is available to you without paying extra, especially if you will not require to have a section of the beach blocked off.
  3. Intimate atmosphere – Beaches are naturally intimate type of places, better appreciated when there are a few people who go there.

Even if a beach is a popular tourist destination, having a beach wedding provides a greater level of intimacy that having a hundred guests would ruin such a mood.

Top Mistakes Wedding Photographers Make That Must Be Avoided

Admittedly, there are some wedding photographers who came into the field of wedding photography with little to no prior knowledge of the business. Thus, they tend to commit some serious mistakes as to how they practice their profession. This piece deals with some of these mistakes so they could be avoided or corrected for the sake of their profession and the wedding photography industry as a whole.

  1. Not providing a legal contract for wedding photography services

Photography is a fun and potentially rewarding career, but you cannot be a successful photographer if you do not take of the legal matters of your business. If you want to be a professional photographer like Heather Finocchiaro you must readily provide needed legal documents. Most important among these is the contract or agreement of services wherein the details of the service you provide are written in black and white. This is so that you and the client have an understanding of what you can or cannot provide as a photographer, not to mention avoid possible legal headaches along the way. Also, many clients prefer to deal with photographers who can provide a contract.

  1. Not limiting the hours of work nor charging for extra time

Having a proper agreement in place will also help you define the scope of work that is expected of you. What if the plan for the day was for a four hour event but due to various reasons the day became twice as long? Are you expected to stay for the same rate you agreed on? Limiting the hours of work and setting the possible extra charges for the extra time will help make your work easier on your end.

wedding-91797_1280

  1. Buying the “best” camera that you do not need.

There is nothing wrong with wanting the best camera available, especially for your profession. Just don’t let it come to a point in the future that you will realize that the camera is too much for what you need and you will regret spending that much for the camera in the process. The point here is this: buy the camera that best serves your needs, and those needs do not require a top of the line, expensive camera. After all, your work will be judged by the images you produce and not the model of your camera.

  1. Bringing ego to the job

Then there is that ego problem a number of photographers sadly have. They think highly of themselves because they get to make people look good. Keep in mind that wedding photography is not about you. It is about two people getting married and you are the one chosen to document the most important day of their life. Better leave that ego at home and come with an open heart and open mind.

  1. Agreeing to work with another team without coordination

There are those instances that we may be requested or forced to work with another team. The bride might book you but the groom’s family have booked their own photographer. Both have their own work attitudes and do not wish for the other team to mind them and vice versa, a recipe for disaster in the making there. It is very important in such cases to make sure both teams are coordinated, like splitting the responsibilities between the two teams and cover for one another if necessary.

photographer-791269_1280 (1)

  1. Giving all the images you shot, including the unflattering ones

As a wedding photographer, you should expect that of the hundreds of photos you will take on the wedding day, not every photo will turn out great. It is your job to make sure you the photos you select to give to your client couple are the best. Including the unflattering ones does not make you a competent documentarian. Rather, you will be perceived as sloppy for being careless that you took those ugly shots, serving as a blemish to your career. And you cannot let that happen.

  1. Not paying enough attention to post production

Somewhat related to the previous point, because not all photos will look perfect after shooting the image, the importance of post-production must be repeatedly emphasized. Some photographers abhor doing post-production because they feel it makes them less than skilled photographers which is not the case. Some photos may not look that good but can still look stunning with the help of post-production, saving the image from being wasted and make your clients happy too.

The Guide To Using Flash At Weddings

The usage of flash in photography has always been a sticky subject among wedding photographers and even non-photographers as well. In fact, there are actually some photographers who despise the idea of using flash or even light modifiers as they feel either they are “unnatural” or just not comfortable using it.

However, there will be instances when flash is necessary to use in certain situations. We shall further look at those situations here in this piece as to what would warrant them for the use of flash.

At Wedding Venues and Reception Areas

Wedding ballrooms, churches and reception areas are prone to have less than ideal light for photographers to take advantage of. Thus, the flash helps create a primary source of light that is brighter and more pleasant than the dim ambient light. It has to be noted though that in a number of cases, churches do not allow using flash during ceremonies, so you have to discuss using artificial light with the church personnel before the ceremony.

church-581061_1920

To help diffuse the harshness of the flash, if there are white ceilings in the area that are not too high, you can mount flash on your DSLR and bounce light off the ceiling or nearby white walls. Alternately, you can use what is called a bounce card which (with the flash) will enable your image to have a much better light source than direct flash.

Photographing Details Indoors

For wedding photographers like Alicia Dunlop, part of the job is to photograph well the details that highlight the theme of the wedding or other interesting details. Sometimes, the light in the venue would suffice, sometimes they would not. If it is the latter case and you wish to save some time photographing details faster, a flash on top of your camera bouncing off a white card might suffice.

When subject is poorly lit outdoors

Most photographers do not bother with flash outdoors, with natural light readily available. Unfortunately, that light is not always available, especially once the sunset arrives. Much like photographing indoors, you may need to use artificial light source, such as flash.

Fill Flash – when shooting backlit

Shooting subjects in a backlit setup can create a nice separation and bring more depth to images. But if the subject is heavily backlit (say with the sun behind), the opposite side of the subject which is facing the camera might get underexposed. Fill flash can help in this situation; single diffused light positioned away from the camera would do the job.

Overpowering the sun to avoid hot spots and intense shadow

beach-wedding-615219_1280

While the sunlight can be a good friend for outdoor photography, there are times, usually in the afternoon, when the light can be too harsh on the photo as the sun is directly overhead. Setting up an umbrella or a softbox with the flash helps get around that problem and you get beautiful photos as a result.

Avoiding environmental color casts on your subject’s skin tone

Sometimes when working with natural reflectors, you get to run into a problem where your subject will assume the color of the reflective surface. You can reduce this effect by using a reflector right next to your subject or use fill flash (umbrella, softbox or other modifier) to illuminate your subject, which will more or less isolate him/her from the rest of the background and reduce color reflections.

Final words

Flash helps provide dimension in your photography, allowing you to solve or at least get around the problems you sometimes face in photography. Just remember to leave some room for creativity to get the best results as possible in your photos.

Tips For Great Wedding Videos

Videos are an integral part of documentation in weddings. Thus, videographers have a challenging task of making sure the output they get to churn out would be of great quality that guests and especially the couple would get to appreciate.

man-736846_1280 (2)

Experts have thus shared 6 tips in ensuring a great wedding video coverage.

  1. Remember that it’s all about the bride and groom. This is the most basic (and most important) tip of all. Keep in mind what they would like in the video. Get as many shots of them as you can of them at every important moment: the holding hands at the rehearsal, when they first see each other at the ceremony, when they walk after the vows and the ceremony, to every interaction they have at any point during the reception. Encourage others attending the wedding to talk about them on camera. Most importantly, concentrate on capturing those once-in-a-lifetime shots.
  2. Keep the theme of the wedding in mind. Make sure that you highlight that theme at every opportunity possible while shooting the video, whether the theme can be seen in the decorations, the outfits, whatever element that is present.
  3. Attend the wedding rehearsal. This will provide you a great opportunity to locate all the electrical outlets you will need, as well as the best places in the venue where your camera can shoot the best possible angles. Also, it will also help you familiarize yourself with other aspects such as placement of the lighting and sound equipment to the order of events, as well as where the key people (parents of the bride and groom, for example) will be sitting, etc. And if you’re actually doing a video recording during the rehearsal (which is highly recommended) is lots of wonderful behind-the-scenes footage to include in your wedding video.
  4. Be friends with the wedding photographer, regardless of his background like a wedding photographer gloucestershire. Coordinate with him on all aspects of the coverage as much as possible and work with one another in providing a great coverage of the wedding in both photos and video. Be ready to have each other’s backs in case one of you is unable to get a good shot, ensuring every important moment is captured in either photo or video.
  5. Make sure you (and your video camera most especially) will be able to see the bride when she walks down the aisle. As obvious as it sounds, make sure that that your video camera’s line of vision will include the bride. After all, she is one of the leading stars of the wedding video you are making, so to speak, so make sure she stands out in that particular moment.

wedding-91797_1280

  1. Make it personal. Even if you have produced so many wedding videos, to your clients which are the bride and groom, their wedding is a unique event that deserves a special touch, so to speak. Edit accordingly, ensuring there is a sense of uniformity between the theme of the wedding and the elements you will adding in the video, like the fonts, the music, the art, etc.

One more thing

There will be times though that things would not go according to plan as you shoot the video during that big day. In case that happens, do not fret. Take it as an opportunity to be creative and come up with interesting ideas that would not only compensate with the issues you have encountered, but also help make the video even more special as well.

Why Hire a Second Shooter for Your Wedding

wedding photographyCouples who are planning their wedding look forward to having the memories of this special event captured or recorded on camera. Most of them would hire a professional wedding photographer to do the huge task of photographing the event and delivering brilliant wedding pictures that are worth keeping.

A wedding photographer is definitely important to hire for your wedding. The question now is, should you hire a second shooter for your big day? A second shooter is another photographer who will assist the primary photographer in covering the wedding. He/she usually coordinates with the main shooter and is associated with the same company.

Some wedding photographers hampshire will include the option of another shooter in the wedding package at a higher rate so couples can have another alternative. Is it really important to have two photographers for your wedding? Isn’t one photographer enough? Well, we have assessed the same thing and we came up with the answer that indeed hiring a second shooter is important.

Below are the reasons why you should consider getting two (or more) photographers for your wedding.

  1. Your main photographer cannot be in two places at once

Normally, a wedding photographer will focus on the couple and the moments during the wedding preparation, the ceremony and the wedding party. At times, there are great or fun moments that happen among the guests that cannot be covered by the main photographer because he/she is busy taking shots of the couple. The only solution to this is if there is someone who can position himself or herself in another spot and take pictures of the guests.

  1. More fleeting moments and people can be photographed

In weddings, the number of guests varies but in most weddings there will be more than 100 guests. And so, by having a second shooter, more people can be captured on camera and both photographers can surely cover more special, fleeting moments.

  1. Better wedding coverage when two heads work together

Two photographers especially from the same company who have worked together before can surely plan the coverage better. The main photographer can lead the planning and assign which parts of the wedding the second shooter will cover or where the second photographer will position himself.

These photographers can even discuss among themselves about taking turns in eating their meal during break. One can take his light meal while the other one continues taking pictures then later on they’ll exchange roles and the other photographers get to rest.

  1. Wide variety of wedding shots

Two photographers can certainly bring more cameras, lenses and accessories that can help produce different kinds of shots. One wedding photographer kent can attach a wide-angle lens on his/her camera to shoot pictures of the wedding venue or the guests while the other one uses a zoom lens or prime lens to take portrait shots of the couple. These two photographers can definitely come up with more awesome pictures that you will truly love.

Of course, the choice of having two photographers will still depend on your budget and in many other factors. If you think your wedding photographer is very skilled and can work on the wedding alone, then you don’t have to hire another one.
