Wedding Photography Tip: Use Two Cameras

There are some situations in which you should always use two cameras. Weddings, live performances and photo journalism or any situation in which you may not have time to change lenses or camera settings require two cameras. With one camera you will miss shots in these kind of scenarios. Having two cameras will also protect against failure of one of the cameras.

Wedding Photography Tip: Ask the Rules

Before shooting a wedding, ask about any rules.  Some churches and reception halls will be very flexible with your positioning and use of flash etc. while others may be very strict on these rules.

Wedding Photography Tip: Trianglular Formation

If you are shooting a large group portrait, and the composition seems weird or lopsided, try arranging the people in a triangular formation. Whether you have three people or thirty, a triangle is a good default strategy.

Wedding Photography Tip: Focus on the Scene, Not your Settings

If your subject is in motion – the Bride walking down the aisle or the newlyweds sharing their first dance – there is often not time to be playing with your camera settings. Set your aperture to a good, versatile setting like f/8, and then forgot about it and focus on being where you need to be to take the best possible shots.

Wedding Photography Tip: Plan Your Photographs

Sometimes, a great photo is a chance event; the light, the subject, and your camera all behave just right, and magic happens. More often though, great photography is the result of careful planning and preparation. Look at other photos for inspiration. Think about what you want to capture about your subject, and what the best way to do that might be. Is this wedding shoot going to be bright and fun, or dark and romantic? How will that change your lighting, your focus, your lens selection? If you answer these questions before you start shooting, you are much more likely to get the photograph you imagined.

    All great tips but you should develop on the settings tips. Set your aperture at f.8 and forget about it. Someone starting out might shoot on Aperture priority, set their A at f.8 and have their Shutter speed go down too low and end up with motion blur images for the entire day.
