Pro­vide di­rec­tion

NPhoto - - The Art Of Weddings -

Kate says… Di­rec­tion is key to the way I work. A lot of wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phers will say they pre­fer to shoot re­portage images, but that’s some­times just be­cause they don’t want to have to talk to peo­ple! At most wed­dings, the re­al­ity is that you have to shoot some ‘posed’ images. Once you start pos­ing the bride and groom you inevitably have to di­rect them, and pro­vide guid­ance and re­as­sur­ance if you want your images to look nat­u­ral. To this end, it’s also im­por­tant to tell them when you’re just tak­ing test shots, and when you’re ac­tu­ally shoot­ing; you don’t want them putting all their en­ergy into giv­ing you their best, most nat­u­ral-look­ing pose when you’re just check­ing the ex­po­sure!
