Taking Wedding Photos

There are many things a photographer has to notice while taking a shot.
The biggest problem in photo sessions is that we are not just capturing the moment, we are creating it!
Here are some things you should always take notice of:

Some Important Rules for best Wedding Photography.

1. Photographer should have confidence on his skills.
2. Supportmen are important. You only have one chance, so you need will need helping hands.
3. Besides from lighting, props are very important. Focus on the details and backgrounds is also vital.
4. View should be Clean.
5.Color filters sometimes create magnificent touch.

ISO and Shutter Settings

ISO, 50 (L), 1oo – 25600
Shutter 1/7000 per 30 second & type isĀ Mechanical.

ISO setting and shutter speed timing can be tricky for wedding photography. Professionals always go for MANUAL mode but AUTO also works so you can start off with AUTO.

If you don’t set your ISO properly, you’re destined for doom! Most of your images will be blurry.

      Hi Aravind,

      sorry about the late reply. I guess our guest writer is busy so I’m replying. Any lens above 150MM should be fine for this kind of photography. Rest will be taken care by Adobe Lightroom.
