The white wedding dress can pose a potential problem for you as the wedding photographer.
Although most people will probably read this with a raised eyebrow because they don’t really know or understand what is going on with the white wedding dress, as a wedding photographer, you will know exactly what this is all about. The thing is, although the wedding dress is just technically something that tends to have a lot of white in it, it is not the way the camera sees it. For some reason, because of all of that whiteness going on, the camera somehow thinks that the white dress is a spot of brightness in the photo and it has the potential to ruin the rest of the photo. Because of that, the camera settings will automatically adjust the “brightness” aka make the white wedding dress come out looking less white than it really is. This can be a real problem.
Wedding dress should look great.
You have to understand that the bride has invested an awful lot of time and money on the white wedding dress alone. She would want her dress to come out looking nothing short of perfect and the automatic adjustments can ruin that. What you can do to avert this potentially disastrous take on the dress would be for you to dial some positive exposure compensation into the photos whenever there is a white wedding dress involved. Read up as much as you possibly can about this and try to adjust it as you go along.
Every wedding photographer needs a second camera.
It doesn’t matter how small the wedding might turn out to be. For as long as you know that you are out to shoot a wedding and the clients paid you good money for it, it is your main responsibility as a professional wedding photographer essex to ensure that there will always be a second camera available and ready for you to pull out any time that equipment failure happens. Weddings are huge deals, no matter how small they might turn out to be. This is mainly because you are taking the responsibility to go ahead and cover the most important day in someone’s life. This is not the kind of thing that you should be taking lightly at the end of the day. Equipment failure can potentially ruin the coverage and can even at times be enough grounds for the clients to litigate you or come after you for damages if you are not careful. Make it a point to have one ready to go as much as possible and never show up at a wedding without it. Bring one along even if you don’t think there is any need for it at the end of the day. It helps out so much more if you have something that will get to serve as your insurance.
A second wedding photographer is also a requirement when shooting weddings.
You will not be able to cover all of the tasks that you need to cover if you are coming in all alone.
