Basic photography

By: Benny Oneill | Posted: 09th March 2011

Anyone could be a wedding photographer today. Portrait digital photography has provided the way in which into taking pictures a lot not quite so hard via reliable approaches. Film can get exposed and is usually downright pricey to pay for and build up while digital photography has made it as straightforward as point, shoot, upload. And with a plenty of competition out there, technological innovation just keeps improving and better.

Digital camera models are found in an array of designs and sizes. Commercial and consumer cameras are small and easy to use. They are great for taking on family activities or special events. For a far more professional look, there are Digital slr cameras. These are typically more complex cameras designed for much better quality and skilled photographers.

There's a wide selection of lenses for professional D-SLRs. Dslr cameras need varied lenses for completely different types of photographs. A basic lens for standard photos, wide-angle lens for photos that capture a larger area of scenery, tele-photo for far off shots, and macro lens that's used for that interesting close-up detail.

There are a couple common tips for taking photos using a D-SLR. Composition happens to be an art which should be completed in such a process which is pleasant to the viewers. Digital photography is just another art that needs this sort of composition to function. Focus on the subject wherever possible. In the event you wear glasses, have them on when shooting the picture especially if you are using a DSLR. Remember, getting a fuzzy image isn't what you are looking for. Finally, if you wish to be artsy you can play with it with the spots from where you shoot the photo. A eagle's eye or worm's eye view can be pretty creative and fun.

DSLR reviews are available on the web to help you select the best camera for your needs. Whether it's a basic point-and-shoot camera like the Canon Ixus or possibly a high quality DSLR from Nikon, there's something on the current market for everyone. To get the best of both worlds, you can also find hybrid cameras for photography that are sleek and stylish much like the simple models but come with more professional lenses.

If you want personality and professionalism (day of) and great photographs (after). Hopefully you get the best of both worlds and here are some tips to making a good choice.

1. Meet your wedding photographer and get to know him/her
You are stuck with us for the whole day, so it helps if there is a "vibe." I had one bride let her mother choose a photographer that barely spoke english and could not communicate effectively (though he was producing amazing photographs, which is of course the latter half).
Make sure they work well with others

2. The photographer often has to direct the flow of the day, which can be a serious issue if there is not cooperation with the other vendors. The DJ should be telling the photographer when events happen at the reception (unless there is a coordinator). The videographer should work with the photographer to ensure that both get their footage/photos. This is something that you also have to require of other vendors, since I've heard of the nicest photographers in the world still arguing with other stubborn vendors.

3. Make sure your photographer produces consistent results.

4. When money is an issue, choose better photos over extra post (like more prints, albums, etc.)About the Author
