5 Simple Tips for Professional Quality Wedding Photography

Last Updated :

Quality is always an inside job. With every professional the biggest driver is passion, learning the trade and just having fun. Wedding photography has many critical elements, but the rush of having a happy client is very satisfying. It is with sheer practice, effort, keeping up-to-date that the photographer will see better results and a quality output. Here are some simple tips that will keep you going:

Simple Tips:

1. Client Expectations

It is nice to be in absolute sync with the Client Expectations have a dialog about the working for the event. Be crystal clear; keep your client posted about what is possible and what isn’t. Keep your portfolio handy. Have fuller details in advance helps to work on them, also remember to be at the venue before the shoot, this helps in getting your gear ready, and also helps visualize the shoot.

2. Update Skills and Style

To have a quality output, it is necessary to keep up-to-date inputs. Every photographer needs to keep update skills, learn about trendy and contemporary styles, learn the newest gigs and gears, try the newest software. This will reflect in the works when you are on ground doing the photo-shoot. The traditional basics will always be the foundation, but keeping update with technology and trends will give you that extra edge.

3. Mastering Basics

Every photographer needs master basics. So the three main pillars are something that will keep you going. Learning about adjustments to ISO, to adjust the sensitivity to camera, Shutter speeds that will help with the effect of motion, and Aperture, which will have a direct impact on the depth of field. These basics will take you a long way for the quality of the photographs. Know about the camera and its functionalities, each equipment with the varied lens will have its working.

4. In Little, great results

Time is always a crucial element, so you’ve either captured or you’ve lost the moment. With wedding rituals the photographer will not get many opportunities for retakes and hence it is nice to be alert, anticipate, use that quiet shutter and capture. In moments where the photographer can request for the couple and the family to pose, remember to be quick to visualize, request organization and take your shots. The longer you take, folks may just run out of patience and apart from which there is a magic of moments which happen spontaneously, remember to optimize on them.

5. Knowing the Environment

It is nice to know the venue, know the environment where the wedding rituals will be conducted. If there are a few rituals, which will be conducted, in direct sunlight then the settings would need to be different and also most of the photography indoors would need to have different techniques used. Remember to reset, use multiple cameras/lenses. Follow the weather forecast; if there are expected showers then you can be truly prepared for that rainy day!

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
