Selecting the Best Wedding Photographer

Picking a wedding photographer is no simple job because there are so many variables to think about including who to select, what to look for, and how much it will cost. Many of these concerns are quite normal and throughout this article I will give you the suggestions needed in picking the best photographer for your wedding.

Last year my cousin got married and she was so surprised at just how many people responded to her ad to hire a wedding photographer. There were so many types of photographers, some were smart, some were impatient, some were clearly amateurs and some were just plain weird. The whole industry has become infiltrated with subpar photographers because of just how profitable the wedding niche is and if you don't select a professional experienced wedding photographer it will be a total nightmare. The pictures may turn out amateurish(or undelivered), he might come to the wedding drunk, he may steal your money and never return and the worst thing is you'll never get a second chance to do it again.

Plan ahead and take your time in selecting a photographer by reading the advice in this article carefully and acting on the information with precision.

Start off by going to your colleagues and relatives and asking them for a wedding photographer reference. While surveying them remember to inquire on the costs, their professionalism and their appearance at the wedding. Make sure you ask these three questions as they are very crucial. Whenever you get a personal reference you can consider it genuine as your friends want the best for you on your big day.

Remember Those Special Dates On Personalised Photo Calendars

There are several reasons why, despite the more hi-techs options now freely available, people still stay loyal to the concept of the good old fashion photo calendar. The fact that it is so old fashion, indeed, is the reason for this enduring appeal. Using a calendar is simplicity itself, so easy that absolutely no prior knowledge or experience is required. After all, no calendar ever came with a complicated book of instructions or a backup CD, and entering the vital information - i.e. the dates which you don't want to forget - requires little more than a pen or pencil and a few minutes of your time. At the start of the year you merely have to jot down major dates such as birthdays and anniversaries and then as time passes you can add the likes of medical appointments, holiday dates and when you have to pay the gas and water bills. Once the dates are up there, there's absolutely no chance of them getting lost due to a power failure or mechanical breakdown and accessing the information is as simple as flipping a few pages.

The only downside, indeed, is the fact that the vast majority of these calendars tend to feature images which seem to have been added as an afterthought - unimaginative subject matter such as meadows and forests or ponies and kittens. Whilst this may seem like a trivial matter, it's still an item which you're going to be looking at more or less every single day and, as such, it surely ought to be something which you'll actually enjoy looking at. The fact of the matter is that you can now create your own calendars using images selected from your own collection of digital photographs, creating something which not only does the job of organizing your time but also lifts your spirits each time you look at it and brightens the room in which it's hanging.

Photography Composition - Understanding the Golden Ratio

Improving your photographic composition skills can be a long and arduous task, yet there is one technique, developed thousands of years ago that can be put into effect in a matter of minutes, that can give you a dramatic improvement in the artistic value of your work almost instantly.

What is the Golden Ratio?

The ancient Greeks were clever people who were extremely adept at seeing the relationships between different things. For instance, they are the ones who discovered the relationship between different sides of a triangle and thus developed the Pythagorean Theorem. They also found the relationship between a circle's radius and its circumference pi: π. In the arts they noticed a similar relationship between great works of art and a particular mathematical formula (the longer part divided by the smaller part is equal to the whole length divided by the larger part) This formula actually derives at number, or more accurately, an approximation: 1.61803... the mathematical constant phi:φ. It is interesting to note that this constant is seen all through the world of science and mathematics as well as in the art world.

Over the thousands of years since the Greeks developed this theory, there has been a great deal of evidence to support it. What does this mean to you as a photographer? It means that there are certain areas within the frame where your subject is likely to draw the most attention. Photographers commonly call this the "Rule of Thirds" but it has its roots in ancient Greek mathematics.

What Is Real? Photoshop Is Used Everywhere You Look

Electronic photo retouching is an ever-expanding field. Wherever you look you can see the evidence of this craft. Most of us are familiar to some extend with Adobe Photoshop in some form; as there are many variations of this program available on different platforms.

Before computers and Photoshop, photo-enhancement was done by retouching the actual photograph with ink or paint. Other technique involves in-camera double-exposure, or working with negatives in the darkroom. Do you remember Polaroids? Scratching the surface of Polaroids used to be very popular.

Airbrushes were also used, whence the term "airbrushing" for manipulation. Darkroom manipulations are regarded as traditional art rather than job related skill.

One of the most famous cases of photo tinkering is a photo of Abraham Lincoln from the 1860s. It was altered using the picture of the body from a portrait of John C. Calhoun, and the head of Lincoln from a famous seated portrait by Mathew Brady.

The photo manipulation industry has often been accused of promoting distorted and unrealistic image of self, most specifically in younger people. The fashion photography is one specific industry, which has been heavily involved with the use of photo manipulation - this is obviously a concern as many people look up to celebrities in search of embodying the 'ideal figure'.

The Photo Effects Are Being Discussed

Numerous people don't know much about photo effects, despite the fact that they are passionate about photography. This can be an advantage, as well as a disadvantage. Why? Things are quite simple. The photo effects are there to improve a photo shot but when they are used in excess, they just ruin it.

In order to better understand, it is important to know what the cool photography effects can do for a photo shot. For example, the photo effects that are wisely used and with a lot of creativity can enhance a photo. They can also help the photographer remove an error, as errors might occur even if you are a professional in the industry. In addition to this, those who add effects to photos can make a photo shot more beautiful than it already is. By highlighting the subject, the message of the photo becomes much clearer and the person who sees it can easily understand what the photographer was trying to transmit. When the message becomes much clearer, the photo manages to do its job. Some photography effects are used in order to add elements, remove elements or make them blurred in order for the photo's message to be more attractive, more interesting and more exciting. Other photo effects can help the photographer transform a simple photo shot into a work of art and even create a series of works of art that can represent the object of an exhibition. These are clearly advantages of the use of photography effects. What is important to keep in mind is the fact that these photo effects are used with a limit and only by professionals who know exactly what each photo effect can do.

Tips On How To Be Good At Photography - Aperture Mode

 Don't worry I was there too! The AUTO mode was the only mode I used. But with time and experimentation you will also get the hang of it and you will be venturing into the other modes eventually. Perhaps you will even start teaching someone else how to be good at photography. Let's take a closer look at the Aperture mode. Your photography will drastically improve after understanding what aperture does.


Just like our eyes a camera has a pupil that could be widened or narrowed to allow more or less light respectively through the lens. This opening is called the aperture and is expressed in fractional numbers starting with the letter "f." Any basic DSLR camera has an aperture range of f/3.5 to f/5.6.

Here is a terminology you need to be familiar with: depth of field. As the term suggests, you can create depth, or shallowness. This brings life to your photo and allows the subject to appear to be separated from the background by adding the softening effect. You control the aperture you control the depth of field. So now you know why a photo could have a sharp primary subject while the background is blurred. Aperture!

Create a Buzz Around Events With Photo Booths

During the late '70s and the early '80s, as a child, a trip to the grocery store usually meant feeling like a lifetime of dragging your feet behind your mother, following her around - aisle after aisle, watching her grab everything you hate and throwing it in the cart for at least an hour.

The only exciting thing about going to the grocery store was that quick walk past all those twenty-five cent kiddy rides. There was usually a mini merry-go-round that could ride three kids at a time, a race car that shakes and makes car noises, and a horse that rocks back and forth and makes the sound of a horse galloping. Although mom hardly ever let you ride these things, especially if it was cold, rainy or windy outside, there was no way she was going to stand out there for three minutes.

That's okay... there's a photo booth inside the grocery store.

Having Fun with Friends

Taking pictures with family and friends is fun. Inside malls, there is usually one of these mini photography studios outside a store or in the middle of the main aisle where the main traffic is. You get four pictures, on a three inch by six inch strip, photographed with the highest of quality.

You can now rent your very mini photography studios at your next private function. Whether it's a wedding, birthday party, a special gathering or event, a company that provides a photo booth rental is exactly what you need to brighten things up. These companies will come to your function and set up your very own photo booth. With unlimited photographs, it's sure to be a big hit.
