Wedding Photography Tips – From Capturing to Editing

0 Wedding Photography Tips   From Capturing to Editinghttp://froknowsphoto.com/wedding-photography-tips/

I love photographing weddings, they are extremely fun and allow you to get really creative. Every wedding that you photograph is different and presents a different challenge. Sometimes you are faced with a strange location with not a lot of great backgrounds and other times you are in the most beautiful place. Regardless of where you are you still need to capture images.

This weeks photo of the week brings you an image captured at a recent wedding. I want to start off by saying how amazing it was to work with this wedding party, they did not stop smiling and laughing all day. When you are working with people who are having fun, smiling and just being themselves it makes for a much easier day. To set up this photo I will give you some background on the location.
We were on the banks of the Delaware river in North East Philadelphia at an old estate. The grounds were gorgeous but we faced an overcast day and were loosing light. You may have heard me say this before but I love shooting on overcast days. It is like shooting with a huge soft-box in the sky. A soft-box diffuses the light aka the sun is blocked by clouds which in turn makes for really sweet light.

We needed to capture a full wedding party shot before we lost to much light. There was this amazing path with trees that had their leaves changing. When it came to setting my camera and deciding on a lens I knew I wanted to use the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII because it would be sharp corner to corner at 2.8 as well as separate the party from the background. The Nikon D3S was set to 4000 ISO 1/400th of a second at 2.8 manual exposure. Yes, 4000 ISO, I am never worried shooting the D3S that high because it handles it extremely well. Remember, if your exposures are very close and you do not have to make major corrections you have less chance of noise being introduced into your images. I directed to party to walk down the path spread out so I can see everyone and stop at a certain point. I got down on a low angle to add more dimension to the image. As they walked back I used continuos focus to track them while capturing the moment. The best image from the set is this weeks photo of the week.

Digital Photography Tips – Sports

2 Digital Photography Tips    Sportshttp://froknowsphoto.com/digital-photography-tips-sports

A little while ago I asked who was in my general area and would like to come out and photograph a real baseball game with me. We had a lot of readers e mail in and I selected six to join me for a day at the Camden River Sharks game. This is a first in what I hope will be long running tradition of having readers join me on photo shoots to learn. This is the real world Super Secret Project where we actually go out and learn together.

After taking a tour of the stadium to see where we were aloud to shoot from we sat in the dugout for a learning session. As you will see in the video we discussed the basics of photographing baseball. Everything from where we will be standing to proper composition to how not to get hit with a foul ball.

Everyone had a blast learning and shooting. At the end of the video you will see a walk through of the images I captured as well as a critique of some of the readers photos. This is another long form video so let me know what you think of the format and what you are learning from it.
