Be Creative in
With an evening celebration, if
the room is really dim, I’ll bump
up my ISO to see what I can
capture using low light. Having a fast lens nearby is also
helpful in these circumstances.
If the low light isn’t working, my
options are to ask the reception venue to raise the lights a
bit, or I might bounce my flash
on a white ceiling or wall, or try
using an LED light to brighten
the table space I’m shooting.
The videographer’s light can be
worth trying, too, if you don’t
have an extra light on hand. I
like to try different approaches,
so when I am in the editing and
post-production phase, there
are options to choose from.
Look for Photo
Look for the waiters coming
in with a delicious platter. If
the party happens to be a
family-style dinner, be sure to
capture guests passing the
food. If possible, ask to go into
the kitchen and take shots of
the food being prepared.
are endless when the guests
are looking for their name
and table number at a party!
Don’t be afraid to talk to
guests and ask if they would
hold their name and table
number for a quick photo!
This is a great way to remember those precious details the
bride and groom spent time
