One of the biggest jobs any photographer can get is as a wedding photographer. One of the biggest hobbies around is photography.Not all people do it for money.Wedding photography is very exciting for those who are still an amateur in this thing.So you you can give some photos to some of your friends who are going to be married which might be better than the photos of their hired photographer.So here are tips on how to do it.
These are some tips for an amateur photographer but they are some tips I have gained doing San Diego wedding photographer work. So if you are a professional they could help as well too.Because as mentioned earlier in the article, doing wedding shoots is one of the most satisfying things that can happen to a photographer.
So, the first thing that you can do is to psyche yourself up to be in the moment.What am I trying to say? Well everyone knows what happens at a wedding.The events here are planned to the last detail. But during those planned events many emotions happen.So you should be ready for those unplannned emotions and take them.Those shots that have emotions in them will be the best among all the photos that you will be taking. In my portfolio as a San Diego photographer you can see that to be the case.
Another tip is to realize the wedding is a fluid event.So do not focus on taking still shots.Capturing the movements of the people in the wedding would result to some of your best photos. It is a hard trick to capture but can be done. Of course I had to hone my skills doing San Diego event photography to be able to do this.But once you start to learn taking photos of moving subjects you will love it.You can outshoot their hired photographer. As an amatuer photographer that will be a great feeling.And you can also share your great photos with your friends.Plus, who knows, it might just be the start of your business.
