Getting Into Wedding Photography

Posted on: 13 September 2008

Digital Photography School (dPS) has an excellent two-part article on the ins and outs of wedding photography.

In Part 1, Charles Clawson from shares some tips on getting into Wedding Photography.

Wedding Photography is unique among all other photography mediums. As a professional photographer you have free reign over an incredible event full of emotion, action and beauty. Being able to use your skills to capture these moments forever, and have them be cherished by your clients is an honor wedding photographers take very seriously. It isn’t for the faint of heart. The pressure is as high as the clients expectations, but it can be a very rewarding occupation. For these reasons, wedding photography is quite a competitive field. [via dPS]

Mr. Clawson follows up with five things any aspiring wedding photographer can and should do to prepare to enter the field of wedding photography.

In Part 2, Mr. Clawson looks at how to choose the right lens for Wedding Photography.

Without asserting that it’s the equipment that makes a good photographer, here I hope to present some basic suggestions and let you take it from there. Some of the information I present here is Nikon specific, only because that is what I have experience shooting with. I hope that others will share suggestions in the comments on makes and models not included here. [via dPS]
