The Helpful Advice Every New Wedding Photographer Should Heed

Wedding photography is a highly challenging genre, requiring the ability to put your creativity and technical skills to the test in a variety of quickly evolving scenarios, all with no second chances. As such, when you are new to it, it can feel a bit overwhelming to all take in. However, this helpful video tutorial offers some great advice that will get you on the right track. 

Coming to you from Katelyn James, this great video tutorial discusses the importance of finding good light and avoiding bad light in wedding photography. At first, the advice sounds a bit simplistic; after all, all photography is about using good light, but it is something that new wedding photographers often really need to take to heart. New wedding shooters often get caught up in capturing every moment, and no doubt, that should be near the top of your mind, but that shouldn't mean you forget completely about light; in fact, the two should be working in tandem to help you produce your best images. Taking time to observe and work with the light can make a huge difference in your final output. Check out the video above for the full rundown from James.
