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.
