Helpful Tips On Simple Tactics
7 Tips for Wedding Group Photos from a Veteran Photographer Shooting group photos is a skill all wedding photographers need to master. Here’s a 9-minute video from Shutterbug Mag filled with 7 tips for taking group photos at weddings by veteran photographer Denis Reggie . Here’s a rundown of what Reggie teaches (watch the video for visual examples): It’s important to think about where you are positioning different people in the wedding party for a group shot. Reggie often puts men behind the women, but some religious groups have considerations about where the groom should be standing (to the left or right of the bride). Reggie uses an off-camera umbrella light to light his group shots. He actually uses two flashes rather than one, providing a redundancy should one not recycle quick enough or choose to play up on the day. Using color gels to adjust the temperature of the flash can make for a much more well-balanced shot. For indoor or evening weddings, the orange color gels are ideal. Reggie recommends the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera, but choosing the right pieces of gear is essential.
