When selecting a wedding photographer you need to remember, there are many styles of wedding photography. You want to make sure that you interview a photographer and ask them what style they use. Some photographers only know how to shoot candids, otherwise known as photojournalism. Others are only traditional photographers shooting in color and mostly posed. Still others lean more towards random, which is generally used by amateurs that don’t know how to photograph a wedding. Let’s look at some of the styles.
If you have an idea, don’t let other people’s input ruin your idea. If they don’t like your idea then they can deal with it. You need to learn to do things for yourself. Do you think that Einstein and other great geniuses went on to listen to their friends about their ideas? I don’t think so.
By using a telephoto lens, you can isolate your subject, making it the focus of your photo. You can isolate the mountain in the background or that amazing sunrise, removing the rest of the landscape in the process. This isolation of a subject can be used to good advantage in portrait photography which allows for a tight crop for a head and shoulders shot. Your subjects are usually more comfortable when you are not quite as close as when you are using a 50mm lens. This also produces more natural looking portraits with the added advantage that with a large aperture setting, the background can be thrown out of focus.
We are all aware that there has been an information explosion. Media channels have increased manifold, so has the need for photographs to make them look attractive and enticing to readers. Also, a lot of them prefer to buy photographs as and when required rather than hiring a full-time lifestyle. So to buy photos, they come to web-based photo syndications called microstock agencies.
(2) Buy a couple of dozen roses but don’t give them to your partner! Instead, pick the petals off of the flowers and create a trail that leads from the front door to either a drawn bath or straight to the bedroom and onto the bed, of course)! Forget about dinner at some stuffy restaurant. Who wants dinner when you can have dessert first?!? No matter which you pick make sure to have scented candles, some chocolates, and the wine or champagne that you think your partner would enjoy. Again, use your imagination. The rest is up to you!
Digital camera prices tend to vary. They depend heavily on the size of the camera. You area also very likely to pay for the name brand. The more expensive cameras for professionals can run you about a thousand dollars. There are some that are in the eighty dollar price range. These are the cheapest an amateur can get with high quality features.
Start calling each caterer and give them the key details to your wedding such as the venue, the number of guests, the date and the time of the day the reception should be held.
Since I was offered a free Canon iP4600 printer with my recent purchase of a Canon PowerShot A470, I naturally accepted. But I am not a photographer, and generally prefer to have my pictures professionally printed and developed. The iP4600 works well enough, but the photo printing package was more than I needed, and I certainly didn’t need the hassles with the ink cartridges. I would not purchase this particular printer.
