Profit tips for wedding photo albums
In Westminster Abbey you will probably not be left on Friday to document the wedding ceremony. But almost every hobby photographer comes at some time to the embarrassment of having to photograph a bridal couple. The professional Scott Kelby gives tips for unusual, beautiful wedding pictures.
Photographing on weddings is not easy. If you have friends (and they know you own a pretty good camera), it is only a matter of time before you stand in a church and say things like, “Okay, now I need the grandparents of the groom. ” Once you pronounce this sentence aloud in a church, you are officially stamped as a temporary wedding photographer. Just because you make the recordings for free (as a friendshake, for example), you do not need to think that the bride expects anything other than the very best quality. Even worse, the better your equipment, the higher your expectations of your pictures.
Even if you were only a sports or landscape photographer, you are a wedding photographer on the wedding day – the hardest photography job in the world. The reason is quite simple: there is no second attempt. This one wedding for which you are responsible, there is only once. There is no “Hook, I think my camera is broken” or “Oh, I have not enough memory cards” or “Now I forgot the charger for the flash”.
Should one of these scenarios occur, you can be sure that the bride will keep your throat down until your body falls asleep like a bag of cement. For the bride, whether you are paid or not, has planned this particular day minutely and has long dreamed of it. If you miss one of the important moments (the ringing, the kiss, the cutting of the cake, the first dance etc.), you have lost everything. That is why in this chapter everything is all about the one thing: Increase your life expectancy.
