Great Tips to be the ultimate wedding photographer in NYC

Great Tips to be the ultimate wedding photographer in NYC

new jersey These days when you think of wedding planning, thoughts of wedding photographers isn't far behind, but that wasn't always the case. That shouldn't come as a surprise since weddings have been happening for much longer than photography has been around! When wedding photographs first started gaining popularity, they were purely studio photography. There were no paper photographs that you could put into a wedding album; in fact not only were there no wedding albums, you considered yourself lucky with your one solitary photograph. The original wedding photograph was a daguerrotype studio posed portrait on a small sheet of copper.

Soon after the birth of photography people began to use it to capture the memories of their weddings. At first they often had to recreate the wedding scene in a studio, although some would simply pose in their best outfit (not the wedding dress!) either before or after the wedding. As cameras became more portable, the photo began to be taken on the actual wedding day, but still with studio quality lighting which the photographer would bring along with them.

You may think that with the advent of colour photography in the beginning of the 20th Century, wedding photos would start to be in colour, but you would be wrong. For a long time colours would quickly fade, so people stuck with black and white. It wasn't until after the second world war that wedding photography started to change more dramatically and weddings began to be recorded with more than one photograph; the ceremony and celebrations would be captured too.

During this post war period, photographers (frequently amateur ones) would often just turn up, take photos of the wedding and then try to sell them to the bride and groom. This is what initially encourage the studio wedding photographers to carry all their equipment to the venue and shoot photographs there, however until the 1970s, these were still predominantly posed shots even when they were so-called 'candid' shots.

The 1970s saw the biggest transformation of the wedding photography industry with the introduction of a journalistic style of wedding photographs. This is still a large part of wedding photography today, although it is now also traditional to have a series of posed shots of the happy couple and their new family.

More recently, digital photography has enabled wedding photographers to take many more photographs over the course of the day, and even to check each shot before the posing couple and guests move away. It also allows for more correction of the photos after the event using photo editing software.

The future? Who knows, perhaps weddings shot entirely by smartphone and automatically uploaded to a social networking site aren't in the too distant future! homepage
