Several councils of the professional wedding photographer
Modern requirements to quality of photos do not allow deviations from color balance, lack of sharpness etc. Pictures have to look as professionally made cards or publications in the magazine. Heat-spots, defects of skin even if they are, are not allowed on the image.
“Nothing is necessary to me, my friend who has “Kodak“ (“Zenith“, “Olimpus“ - necessary to emphasize), will remove everything for me“, - problems begin with this phrase. And business even not that the friend wants to participate in fun too. Though producers of cameras and TV commercial assure the consumer that his device provides good pictures, it not so. For years of work in system of laboratories I saw many photos, made by such equipment, and on the most part removed on celebrations. In 90% of cases it is just technical marriage. Not to mention plots. Cases when it is necessary to go to heavy expenses are known to me and to change all wedding (except Wedding palace) from - for the fact that the photos made by one of relatives did not turn out. In the mode of responsible shooting only professional expensive chamber in combination with experience of the photographer can yield good result.
Several words about amateur digital cameras. Quality of the picture excellent, but here speed yet not at height. Besides, it is correct construct composition “on the fly“ only the professional with experience of wedding shooting can.
the Second delusion concerns where to print photos. Guaranteed qualitative result in laboratory on the next corner cannot be received.“ Your flash did not work“, - the acceptance inspector will tell, giving you a package of the blue or dark pictures made, by the way, from fine negatives. But also they are already for certain scratched. Therefore each professional photographer has “the“ printer or “the“ laboratory where quality control follows each shot. From digital disks quality of the press is guaranteed for 100%.
Here some more councils from the professional photographer to newlyweds:
- the Guarantee of magnificent pictures of your celebration - preliminary discussion with the photographer and the video operator of wishes and the scenario. Do not neglect it.
- Remember that you are removed, and smile more often. At an entrance to the hall of weddings you do not look around, under legs or on a chandelier what interesting to you the surrounding situation would not seem. You look forward or at each other.
- As soon as you crossed a threshold of the hall of weddings, try to do everything very slowly. Especially it belongs to putting down of signatures and putting on of rings. Try not to tear off a feather from paper, give the chance to the photographer to make several photos of this important point. And photographing speed in these conditions not quicker than 1 shot in 6 - 8 seconds. the Groom during signing has to remember
- the bride. It is desirable that newlyweds appeared in one shot. Therefore when the bride appends the signature, the groom has to watch attentively and gently what it does. The same concerns also the bride.
- do not dart sidelong glances. If your attention was drawn by something, look with the raised head and whenever possible with a smile there. Having seen that the photographer aimed on you a chamber, smile to him and do not try to replace quickly a pose or to look down. When the photo is made, the photographer a nod of the head or other sign will let know that it finished work on this plot.
- Very slowly put on each other rings. It is the heaviest moment in shooting. Make so that both a ring, and a hand, and the person were visible to the photographer directly at the time of putting on, but not after that.
- Having received the marriage certficate, do not hide it, and it is proud show to people around. Wait for several flashes of the photographer, and do not hide emotions. The best shots happen to radiant eyes and genuine pleasure just these minutes. surely everything stipulate
- When planning the holiday with the master and allocate time for shooting of a portrait of the bride with studio light. The best results turn out to a trip when a make-up, a hairdress and a dress in the primitive freshness. Especially as for shooting of several portraits no more than 15 - 20 minutes leave. Offer
- the ideas and state wishes. Time of our acquaintance is short, and addictions and tastes of newlyweds are not always clear to the photographer.
