Weddings have become the professional photographer’s daily life, but doing quality work is no easy task

Weddings have incorporated more and more innovations with the passage of the years. From the simplicity and tradition of the last century, with few guests and small ceremonies, to huge events with even more than one celebration day. There have also been many changes with regard to technology. Hand in hand with the evolution of the cameras has also gone the professionalism of the photographers, who are able to provide clients with high quality works. Even though it may seem simple, a wedding is a challenge if the ultimate goal is a perfect album. Therefore, we give you some keys to make the work as efficient as possible:

 

Good planning

It may seem obvious, but preparing the material in advance can avoid many troubles. You never have to feel too confident. It is better to check things twice before you suffer a surprise on the day of the event. It is also necessary to know every wedding moment to know where to be at the right time. Therefore, going to all key locations and ask the clients how the day will be will greatly help photographers.

Two, always better than one

Two photographers will capture moments better than one. Not only because they shoot double, but because it allows giving different perspectives and assurance that there is someone to help the other in case of a setback. It is also advisable to use two types of lens that open the range of possibilities.

Top material

A good material is what one characteristic that makes us stand out above the rest, but it’s no good if you do not make the most of it. Having good machines, great objectives and perfect lighting should be accompanied by a mastery of them. The technology advances every day and you have to be up to the last to offer the bride and groom all the possibilities.

A good team is what one of the characteristics that makes us stand out above the rest, but it’s no good if you do not make the most of it. Having a good appliances, great objectives and perfect lighting should be accompanied by a mastery of them. The technology advances every day and you have to be up to the last to offer the bride and groom all the possibilities.

Attention in key moments

At certain points you must not risk. Prepare the burst mode and pay attention at moments like the entrance of the bride, the rings, the first kiss or the exit of the temple. Even so, if you have done a good preparation, you will be able to turn that moment in an authentic work of photographic art without losing emotion and authenticity.

Shoot small details

Details are the key. Here, the clinical eye of the photographer plays a crucial role in capturing what makes each wedding unique and different from the rest. A look, a smile, a zoom in a very specific object or moment … there are countless situations that the photographer should be aware of.

Editing skills

The photograph does not end until it goes through the computer. If we have used RAW format we will have many more possibilities to create without losing the quality of the image. A good knowledge of programs like Photoshop can completely change a snapshot. Of course you should not adulterate a photograph, but play with the different elements of it to get the perfect picture. With luck, it will rest on a shelf for dozens of years.

How to know if your mobile camera is good

If you are the one who pays more attention on the camera than the rest of the elements when buying a mobile phone, this article might be interesting to you

As we told in the previous article of the blog, today most mobile phone users who like to take amateur-level photographs for their social networks or personal albums only carry their mobile devices instead of compact digital cameras. Mobile phones have not reached the quality of a digital SLR camera, and it is very complicated this happens, but the technology advances and the cameras of our phones are getting better and better.

We often tend to think that the number of megapixels means quality, but nothing further from reality. Megapixels are a size unit. The more you have, the bigger the picture, but if a photograph is enough good with 2 megapixels (1080p) at least, why should we be obsessed about our camera having more than 20?

However, the ability of our phone to capture light will tell us much more about the goodness of its camera. As a basic rule, if a phone is capable of capturing good night or low-light images, your camera will undoubtedly be good. It is also the focal aperture. The smaller the value of the “f /” number, the better. The usual in high-end mobile phones is f / 2.2 or f / 2.0.

Focus speed is another factor to keep in mind. If our mobile is fast we will be able to capture a snapshot without spoiling it because of the focus. Also, make sure your phone has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) to prevent blur unless you have the pulse of a surgeon. But the top of mobile phone cameras is the professional mode, that allows us to save files in RAW format, modify the focus, vary the speed of exposure or ISO.
