How often do you hear the phrase, “photography is all about lighting?”
Probably a lot, right?
And rightfully so...lighting is a crucial element of any photograph, whether the photo is of a person, a building, a plant, an animal, and so on.
The difficulty with lighting, though, is when you either have little or no control over it and when you’re in a high-stress shooting situation.
Both of those difficulties certainly apply to wedding photography!
But, just because it’s a difficult shooting situation doesn’t mean that you can’t do yourself some favors in the lighting department the next time you shoot a wedding.
From bouncing the light from a speedlight off of another surface to placing backlights just so to create a stunning, dynamic photo, there’s a lot to think about and consider as you plan your wedding photo shoots.
