5 Tips to Overcome Problems encountered by Wedding Photographers

Last Updated :

The beauty in retracing the wedding day is rejuvenating and bringsback fond memories. Wedding photographers need to capture the story happening live and with no second chances. This can be a challenge but it is a grand opportunity to bring out the best in oneself. Problems in themselves are a grand opportunity to push one to think, be agile, be prepared and overcome quickly so that the photographing opportunity is not lost and the moments honestly captured. Here are some simple tips of overcoming problems encountered.

tips to overcome problems encountered:


1. Equipment Failure

The equipment on the big day will play a huge role, and it is best to keep a checklist to carry for the session. It is best to think of the worst scenario and prepare accordingly, so if the equipment fails to work there will be backups. Double-check the list whilst packing so that you’ve not missed out on anything. Keep the list update, so that every time you’ve encountered a problem, the solutions and the equipment finds its place on the list.

2. Eye Trouble

Eyes are the soul and window to emotions, and the eye troubles like red eye, closed eye and squints can be a bother. For the red eye you could use the anti-red eye function on your DSLR, use fill flash, and ask the subjects to look away and then try your captures. For closed eye and squints you could ask the subjects to close their eyes and open it just when you are ready to capture, you could also consider usages of reflectors.

3. Too Dark…To Light

This is a familiar issue, when capturing the photographs may be either too dark or too light. And to overcome try and experiment with the exposure, it is nice to use the manual mode in the camera. If the camera offers ‘spot-metering’, using would help, and also try and use fill-in flash, these would help the right exposure for the captures and the issues would be resolved.

4. Indulging in Depth-of-field

Wedding photographers need to understand the basics of using the depth-of-field and indulge in the usage for some great captures. A shallow depth-of-field helps in blurring the background and focusing on the subjects.

5. Setting tones, use fill-in reflector

Shadows on the subjects’ face can cause anxiety, the best way for those natural tones is to use fill-in reflectors, which will magically remove those harsh shadows and also give you some really warm hues.

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!
