Tips and Advice for beginners:


1. Network

Being a part of a network of photographers, following blogs, and attending workshops could help in a big way in contributing to adding contemporary styles, updating skills, learning tricks of the trade and changing your perspective. It is nice to frequently get in touch with your current skills and keep them update. Heart to heart dialog with professional wedding photographers, could teach techniques that go beyond literature available.

2. Explore locations

It is nice to explore the wedding location prior to the day of the event. This will help in giving you insights which will help you prepare better for the special day. You could explore and take some trial shots to check the angles and also anticipate what exactly should be packed for the occasion. With a packed schedule if it is not possible to travel and if the distances are wide and far, then you can check out for blogs, which have captured the venue, these may also give insights on work done and help you prepare better.

3. Apply inside knowledge

Build on your inside knowledge for the wedding event, build your rapport with folks of the wedding couple, the couple, organizers and the knowledge which you have pooled up, remember to apply the same. This will give you a perspective on expectations and also the rapport built up will help you seamlessly blend and be a part of the event.

4. Continuous shooting mode

Burst Mode (Continuous shooting mode) is an option, which can be explored by photographers. With the steady wedding rituals the burst mode allows the photographer to capture the rituals as they unfold. These captures give the photographer a stunning sequence of photographs to choose from.

5. Knowing to use effects

Capture your subjects in as normal modes as possible. It is also nice to know what your image editor can do, to use the effects, which will enhance your photographs. It is nice not to shoot using the pre-setting effects, which will make it difficult to convert the shots later.

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!
