Digital Wedding Pictures - How To Ensure You Get Memorable Shots

May 27, 2008
How best to capture the memories of your wedding day; one of the first and foremost considerations for anyone planning a wedding. One trend that has become firmly established in recent years is that of taking digital wedding pictures (instead of using traditional film) with the great benefit being that both the couple and the guests can get to see the photos really quickly. Whilst a DVD can be a great addendum to the day, nothing quite beats the digital wedding photo as a means of capturing the moment.

A wedding photographer can always call on an assistant to help him get the right shots but if you're simply a friend taking pictures, then how can you ensure that you are also taking memorable shots? If you are in a situation where you've been invited to a wedding and you intend to take some digital photos, then you may find some useful information in this article.

When taking a digital wedding shot, try to ensure you have interesting background scenery and that there aren't too many people in the shot. Portrait images (those that show just head and shoulders) can be very effective especially if there is hardly and background in the shot.

Guests with glasses can be a problem as glare from their glasses obscures their eyes and reflects back at the camera. Unless you are angling for a certain effect move so that the sun is behind you when taking the shot. This will help you avoid taking shots with people in the picture coming out dark.

Candid shots can be quite dramatic and these portraits often reveal more than the quality of the picture itself. Many professionals stand well back and use the zoom to capture intimate and memorable moments. You need to be alert at all times when shooting digital wedding pictures since you can't always ask people to keep posing for you and the best shots tend to be when you're capturing spontaneous moments, anyway.

All your effort will be wasted if you don't have fresh batteries or carry enough memory for your digital camera to take every image from the day. A 1GB card should be the bare minimum you have if your camera is a six mega pixel model, a larger capacity if the camera has a higher mega pixel rating.

The higher the resolution you set the sharper the images will be and the larger they can be printed out. You can do this by saving albums onto your personal computer to free up the space on your memory card or burn them to a CD or DVD.

Digital wedding photography has become just about the established norm over the last few years and how successful you are will depend on your attention to detail and your willingness to improve.
