No matter where in the world you are the lucrative wedding season kicks in properly this month, and will then run until mid-September. The year long series Walk through a Wedding follows photographers Justin and Mary Marantz as they help clients capture their ‘big day’. This week they show how TTL flash helps them to give a better service to their customers.
Most couples seek to create a personal and highly unique wedding day. For photographers this means that no two weddings are alike, what worked before may not be appropriate again. This week the Marantzs discuss getting great family portraits, despite working against strict time constraints.
This episode shows the importance of well chosen gear since its impractical to do big changes between shots. People choose a photographer because they want to look extra good in their photos and avoid amateur snaps. Making people look
good requires a good lighting set-up which they achieve through a simple structure base around their use of a large umbrella. The other way to make people look good on their wedding day is to keep them happy which can be achieved by not wasting time and keeping people waiting. Using TTL allows them to capture all the spontaneous joy of the wedding and create some enduring portraits. Check in on their bi-monthly wedding series by clicking here.
