Photography is a profession, a hobby and an expression of oneself. But before can call yourself a photographer, you should have at least mastered one style. Capturing random pictures is not photography. It is just merely taking pictures. Photography is an art.
Photography is a style of taking pictures where in a theme is obvious and the subject is clear. By just seeing a picture taken by a photographer, you will readily understand what the picture is about and what the photographer has in mind while taking the picture. It is not like taking a picture of your food and call it food photography. People are now using the word photography in a very shallow meaning.
If you are an aspiring photographer and want to get into the business, here are a lot of tips that will be useful for you:
1. Know your style.
Knowing your style is the most important thing when it comes to photography. You cannot just copy the style of one photographer and make it yours. Each and every wedding photographer here in the world has their own styles in taking pictures. They all know what they are good at and that is what you should know too about yourself. Use your own creativity to determine what kind of style you are good at.
2. Play with the lighting.
The light is very important in photography. Without it you cannot capture anything. It is a must for you to learn how to use it and even play with it after you have mastered it. Even if you just move the light from an angle to another, you will be able to capture a different kind of picture. Light is indeed important. You should also be able to know how to use it properly and how to blend it on the wedding. Be careful of too much exposure that your pictures might appear different from what you expect.
3. Capture the things that are essential to the event.
A wedding is a very beautiful day. You should be able to capture every detail of it without missing anything. It is a very momentous event that everyone should remember it completely without leaving anything to miss. This is why you should take a picture of the bride’s gown until the ending of the event. By seeing the pictures you have taken, it should bring them back to the planning stage until the ceremony proper. There should also be stolen pictures to capture real happiness and to show the genuine smiles of everyone who has witnessed such a lovely event.
4. Process your pictures.
After shooting the event, you should know how to process your pictures. You can’t just rely on its natural look on your camera; you should also enhance them so that your customers will be happy about your captured pictures. Processing the pictures does not mean that you edit them to make them beautiful, process your pictures in a sense that you enhance its quality and lighting.
