Want to Be a Better Wedding Photographer? Try Street Photography

Wedding photography is a challenging, high-pressure genre, and anything you can do to be as prepared as possible will help you to ensure that when the big day comes, you can deliver the shots your clients want. One way to improve your abilities that you might not have considered is street photography, and this excellent video will show you why you should practice it. 

Coming to you from John Branch IV Photography, this excellent video discusses how you can use street photography as a means for improving your wedding photography skills. While the actual creative output is often quite different, street photography can be an interesting emulation of the wedding environment, with constant motion, continually evolving compositions, and the need to be quick with your eye and camera in order to create compelling shots. This can make it a very good way to improve your wedding photography skills on your own time and without the higher pressure of a ceremony situation. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

Do you ever write your own article without riding on domeone else's talent and story? Sad...

You really should check before you make such a statement. Yes, FS does use a lot of videos for articles, but they also produce original content. Not so sad.

No fight, Pat. Just trying to get the member straightened out. Alex posts videos from others, but he has also posted a lot of original stuff. Besides, if one doesn't like the content here, one can ask for his initiation fees and monthly dues. No...wait! It doesn't cost a penny to come here and yet, people pi$$ and moan about it. Heck, I'm guilty when it comes to injecting too much politics into the mix but I know in this case, Alex is a steady contributor when it comes to original content.
