Slow Shutter Pictures of the Wedding


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.
