9780240817873: The Wedding Photography Field Guide: Capturing the perfect day with your digital SLR camera (The Field Guide Series)

At any wedding you attend, you will not only see the professional photographer, but a host of the happy couple's friends and family, cameras in hand, all looking to capture the definitive shot of the perfect day. The portability and adaptability of digital photography has opened up the world of wedding shooting; however, on such a special occasion it's vital that the photographer is confident that he or she is up to the job. The Wedding Photography Field Guide-although compact enough to fit easily into a suit pocket-offers comprehensive and easy-to-follow advice on how to do the special day justice. Whether it's dimly lit churches or lively dance floors, wedding photography presents particular and demanding locations, and you rarely have much time to shoot. All the situations you're likely to encounter are covered here, along with advice on the best equipment, posing, people-management, and technique. The book also explores different styles of wedding photography, from the classic formal portrait to modern reportage approaches, with inspirational shots from leaders in the field.

Take a Look Inside The Wedding Photography Field Guide [Click on Images to Enlarge]


I'm constantly keeping an eye out for interesting colors and designs painted on buildings. Sometimes you can find street art that complements your couple perfectly! This was photographed with a 35mm lens, which is my go-to lens for environmental city portraits.

Darkness was falling when we walked by this great wall, so I bumped my ISO up to 3200. Car headlights are adding a bit of light to the bride's face and creating the interesting shadow under the brim of the groom's hat. I photographed this with my 50mm lens.

The groom instructed each of his groomsmen to show up to the wedding with a different belt buckle and tie. They were all so proud to show them off, and I chose not to ask them to straighten their ties because it added to the fun and casual feel of this photograph. I shot this with my 35mm lens.

Mirrored surfaces can be fabulous tools for photographing details. This was a glass-topped wood desk in a hotel room. I crouched low so that the glass reflected the white wall and the bride's ring, and used my 60mm macro lens.
