Elementary Wedding Photography Tips for Beginners

Last Updated :

The most flourishing of photographers have begun their journey as keen learner amateurs. Nurturing your passion, working on basics, and updating the latest trends will keep one going. Wedding photography is a critical and exquisite photographing opportunity, one that is a pure delight.

For a beginner working on some elementary tips could be a step forward to those perfect shots:


1. Breaking away from the rest

The market is swelling with latest gadgets, and there are scores of photographers. It is necessary to learn basics, learn from the manual, and the available literature, apply what you have learnt, experiment and break away from the rest, to stand out. It is your own unique forte, which will make you a successful professional.

2. Don’t get bogged down by details

It is nice not be bogged down by too much details of the f-stops, ISO sensitivity. It is best to not to be overawed by all the talks, focus on your creativity, and think out-of-the-box, master your basics and you will find that you are doing really well.

3. Give space

The wedding will give you a lot of scope for photographing details, and when it comes to the opportunity to photograph the couple, remember not to overdo. Give them their needed space. Don’t intrude. Try and seamlessly be a part of moments, and do your bit. The more the couple will relax, and are spontaneous the more you will get your perfect shots.

4. Focus on your subjects

On their special day the couple naturally will be highlights for everything in the memory collection you are trying to capture. Best to look out for techniques, which bring out the focus of the subjects, like blurring the background. Auto focus is sometimes not an easy option during the event. Remember to use the manual focusing features in your camera.

5. Plan for the unexpected

Wedding photography needs a lot of planning and it is nice to plan for the unexpected. This makes you better prepared; you will be more relaxed knowing that you have already planned for extremes. And once you are relaxed this will reflect in the captures. And most importantly remember to have fun.

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.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

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!
