White wedding dress
An issue that a lot of wedding photographers come across with during the main wedding photography shoot is the fact that the camera seems to have a different perception of the white wedding dress than the average human eye. You might brush this off as something that is coincidental or something that may have just been related to the lighting and so on but this is actually a very serious issue. The camera seems to think that the whiteness of the wedding dress is somewhat related to brightness. It will in turn try to automatically dull it out thinking that it is trying to save the rest of the picture in the process. All it really does is make the wedding dress come out looking dull and unattractive and that is what has annoyed Edinburgh wedding photographer so much in the past. There is something that you can do about this though.
A simple solution that you can put in to have some kind of a workaround with the white wedding dress issue that has plagued wedding photographers so much in the past is for you to go ahead and dial in some positive exposure compensation. Learn about this setting and practice setting it on your camera so that you don’t have to waste time in between once you are caught up in the middle of a wedding photography shoot and you need to shift to it so that you will be able to capture the white wedding dress the rest way during that particular time.
What wedding photographers will tell you all of the time is that you need at least two cameras to shoot a wedding photography event. Never ever show up at a wedding photography shoot with only one camera because that is something that can turn out with really disastrous results when it all comes down to it. You need to make sure that you are always able to come prepared for anything that can possibly happen and getting a second camera will do just that for you. There are a lot of places that allow you to rent one out in case you can’t afford to buy one just yet. The second camera will basically serve as your insurance. Equipment failure can happen anytime and without any preamble or whatever so you need to really prepare for the worst as much as possible.
You should also work on getting a second shooter.This is something that wedding photographers have really struggled a lot with when then were starting out. Professional photographer fees do not come in cheap, after all. This is something that you cannot afford to do without regardless though because of the fact that weddings are huge and it would not be possible for just one man to efficiently cover everything that needs to be covered. What you can do is to go ahead and reach out to the other wedding photographers in your area to see if you will be able to initiate an exchange of services of being second shooters in each other’s booked weddings.
