Wedding photography is a notoriously difficult genre, full of fast-paced action and challenging scenarios. This fun and interesting video shows a wedding photographer's point of view on the big day and offers some helpful tips and tricks along the way.
Coming to you from Taylor Jackson, this great video follows him as he photographs a wedding from start to finish, offering some helpful tidbits along the way. Weddings are quite difficult, as the pressure is on to capture competent shots in quickfire fashion, and of course, you don't get second chances. I found this video particularly interesting, because Jackson chose to photograph the entire wedding with nothing but an 85mm lens. Certainly, the 85mm focal length is one most wedding photographers are highly comfortable with, but shooting an entire day with only that lens is definitely a creative and technical challenge, which is why so many wedding shooters tend to rely on zooms or at least a few primes. Nonetheless, it seems like Jackson was quite successful in the end. Check out the video above to see it all.
