Summer Wedding Photography Tips for Beginners

Winter, Spring, Monsoon or Summer, when it comes to weddings, they just have their own majestic beauty. Every climate brings with it, an innate essence of its own. Summers are a splash of colours, and considering wedding events have their own spread, it is a plethora of photographing opportunities for the wedding photographer. As a beginner, one must know the best of that the weather can do for you, and here some simple summer wedding photography tips:

Simple tips for summer wedding photography:

1. Lighting matters

In summer while shooting for the big day, keep the harsh sunlight in mind to plan your captures. While shooting outdoors, the shade beneath trees or objects could help soften your captures. Fill-flash and usages of reflectors could also be thought of. Remember that the shadows cast on your subjects’ face due to the harsh sunlight will be a bother. Experiment and learn to quickly treat them well.

2. Complimenting Attire

With the blistering heat, it is nice to wear clothing, which will compliment and help you through the day. Consider wearing a cap. Wear light and pastel shades and fabric that will help absorb the trickling sweat. A good camera strap will help carrying the camera through the day.

3. Know to read Histogram

The small LCD in summers may be difficult for that quick glance to check your captures. It is best to know to read the Histogram, which will quickly tell you about the exposure and tone in your captures.

4. Understanding Exposure

Every beginner must experiment and learn about Exposure. With vibrant colours of summers and the Wedding event, the photographer may wish to try shorter shutter speed, which will underexpose and bring out deeper colours and hues in the captures.

5. Understanding White Balance

Summers are characterized by vibrant tones, and every photographer must know the white balance settings to bring out the summer feel in the captures. Setting white balance will help you read and adjust your camera to the temperature of the light streaming in. For the summer feel in the images captured, you could consider warmer light in the white balance.

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!
