Wedding, One of the most important days in our life. A day filled with emotion and fun, which cannot be described in words but as we all know, it can be relived and rejoiced by looking at the images captured by your photographer. What would you remember after looking at the images captured by your photographer, is all up to you. Who would you blame, if photographer hired by you turns in horrible images. Images should remind you of your memorable day and not how horrible the photographer did his job.
When I first started as a Dorset Wedding Photographer I had no idea that I needed insurance. I backed up all my camera gear, images, workstations, and even had a backup photographer so why would I need one. The thing is it’s for all of the things you can’t plan for. There are two primary types you need to worry about, liability and malpractice. One covers your rear in case you somehow fail in your normal duties and are sued. The other covers you in case you injure someone on the job and covers your gear in case it is damaged. Both are covered through PPA which to be honest is a great community for photographers.
NOTE: Nikon has not shipped the D4 yet, so no one has actually had the ability to write a complete review. Currently this review only covers the known features, differences, and new capability of the D4. Along the way, I make comparisons to the D3S and D3 to highlight the differences in the D4. Although I have pre-ordered the Nikon D4, I do not excpect it to arrive until late February. At that time I will provide an in-depth analysis of the entire camera system.
OK, this isn’t something that can be viably done, but the good thing about this is that in particular beach weddings are quite common. So if a beach wedding is available then there’s nothing stopping anyone from watching from a distance. It’s in the public domain and it can be done. If this happens then keep an eye on the photographer and watch what they do. They will move in a certain way and they will pick certain moments in which to take pictures.
The right equipment is needed for this type of photography. If a large camera is being hauled around then that’s noticeable and it can just get in the way and make people feel uncomfortable.
Clearly the back has a bit of change from the previous D3s setup. What happened to the AE-L/AF-L button? Well Nikon ditched it for better support of vertical or portrait use. The protect button is now overloaded, and is used for picture controls when in shooting mode. They have added a video / still image lever, with the live-view button in the center. The info button is the same. The Zoom is no longer controlled by the dial. Nikon has adapted the D700 style zoom buttons.
Also, very important, well in advance of your wedding, create a wedding photography checklist for your wedding day. Remember to include and write down which type of family shots you want and who you want in them, ceremony shots, bridal room shots, candid pictures during cocktails and the reception and party shots to name a few.
After that, you can now shop for photo albums and other photography equipment and stuff that you might need to keep and preserve your cheap wedding photos. Remember that there are a lot of albums that cost cheap but are as high quality as those that cost too much. A perfect wedding can still be achieved even if you are on a tight budget!
