Good Wedding Photography:
What You Can Do to Make Your Pictures Right.
BEWARE THE SNARE OF "ARTFUL" CONTRIVANCE
You cant believe why on earth did you allow the photographer to "degrade" you that day. But you were certain you looked stupid in the picture. "Groom, hold up the phone receiver and talk into it. Bride, look the other way thats right, okay now, cup your right ear and pretend to hear him. Perfect!"
Who would want a picture like that? You wont believe the paces some photographers put people through, but they sure are silly. What your photographer feel is art may not really be your cup of tea. So, do be careful. Learn to say no if youre not comfortable with a particular pose. Weve seen too many poor couples manipulated into poses best performed by contortionists. Dont be another victim.
ENDURING THE PERFECTIONIST TORTURE
If you really have to take pre-wedding (studio) photography, check with your photographer how many shots and how any hours of photography hes putting you through. Setting a time limit with your photographer would be helpful for it is not uncommon for couples to go through 7-hour photo sessions. If you feel that you can take the marathon, fine. But would you still look good nearing the 7th hour mark? Checking ahead with your photographer would better prepare you for the photo shoot. In turn, this will minimise any unpleasant surprises that might arise due to poor planning.
Another thing to consider
before signing up with any photographer is the location
of the photo session. These days, anything goes and
heres where you have to be careful. A number of
couples have taken to endanger their lives by taking
pictures on railway tracks. Were not talking about
disused railway tracks, but tracks that have regular (and
speeding) services running on them. So, make sure your
photographer really know the train schedule to avoid any
unpleasantness, to say the least.
