Slow Shutter Pictures of the Wedding
Wedding Party Photographs
I really like doing slow shutter shots. Clients love them and it creates cool effects.
The key is in 3 areas.
1- slow shuter 1/25. Brace yourself, practice good slow shutter breathing and camera stabilization, and fire off 10-15 frames.
2- Focus point on the subjects who must remain totally still. This is critical.
3- The wedding party should be positioned in front and behind the couple. On command they should walk fast across the couple. Don’t let them criss-cross or they will just bump into each other.
The best shot will be the one where there is a blur in front and behind the couple. I will make the wedding party do it twice just to make sure I have at least one good shot.
Other Variations include making them run in circles- This is really fun on a hot wedding day.
Or having a faster shiiter speed so they are not totally blurred but in fact you can see their reactions. Tell them to walk like fast Zombies. On a quicker shutter speed you can see their blurred reactions and its hilarious.
