An Advanced Two-Light Setup for Wedding Photography

When it comes to wedding photography, time is almost never a luxury, and as such, the photographer generally has to keep the lighting setups relatively simple to keep things moving. Nonetheless, if you are feeling confident in your abilities and ready to step it up to the next level, a two-light off-camera setup can give you a lot more creative flexibility. This awesome video tutorial features an experienced wedding photographer sharing her two-light setup for photographing receptions.

Coming to you from Katelyn James, this excellent video tutorial will show you an effective two-light setup for shooting wedding receptions. The challenge and downside of working with more flashes are that more things can go wrong, and it is more to keep track of. Nonetheless, as you will see, one of the best things this setup can do is add a lot more depth to the image and take your lighting from functional to artistic, making for more compelling final results. Check out the video above for the full rundown from James.
