Professional wedding photographers are expensive, and many couples planning to get married simply can’t afford them. Couples who don’t have deep pockets and can’t afford the high prices established wedding photographers charge will often turn to “wannabe photographers” and enthusiasts, many of which are more than capable of capturing stunning portrait photos much like yourself.
If you are competent at taking portraits, and have the confidence to deal with the stresses of wedding photography there are plenty of opportunities to win some wedding photography shoots that will improve your skills, increase your portfolio and also earn you a bit of money in the process.
There are many established wedding photographers, who have been shooting weddings for several years, totally against photography enthusiasts taking on wedding photography gigs. These photographers are very verbal about it, but this is hardly surprising. I mean, at the end of the day the established wedding photographers have their price list, and if the couple planning to get married can’t afford that price they have no option but to seek a cheaper alternative, and that is where photography enthusiasts like you can help.
If you want to take advantage of this situation and win some wedding photography assignments it is crucial you have the photography equipment good enough to capture high quality wedding photos. If your photography isn’t up to snuff your photos won’t be up to scratch, and you won’t win many wedding photography shoots.
Arguably, the most important photography equipment for weddings are lenses and you need to make sure you have the right type of lenses for the best results. A top end lens on a mid-range camera will capture better wedding photos than a mid-range lens on a top end camera any day of the week, so before upgrading your camera body you should take a look at your lenses in the first instance.
To shoot a wedding you need a few different camera lenses, and these are explored in the following video:-
The Go Pro Session action camera is a small and light, but super strong and robust video camera that is perfect for capturing video footage of extreme sports and activities (rock climbing, sky diving, white water rafting, sailing power boating, motor sports, cycling etc. etc.) and when you get under the skin of this video camera it is easy to see why.
First off, the Go Pro Session camera can be fixed, positioned and located in several different places, and at several different angles. This is a huge advantage as it means this camera is very versatile and capable of capturing dynamic, unique and “different” videos to the norm.
The Go Pro Session camera is super tough, durable and water proof. You can use and abuse this Go Pro and it will still carry on recording. The Go Pro Session’s strength and toughness makes it the perfect camera for outdoor pursuits and activities.
The Go Pro session camera is effectively a “plug n play” camera that is user friendly and very easy to operate. Simply insert an SD card, fix the camera in position and hit the record button. There is no need to faff around with exposure settings, no need to faff around with framing and composition, and no need to faff around with focusing.
The Go Pro Session camera is affordable. In fact, given the image quality, the audio quality and the build quality this action camera is cheap and top value for money. This action camera is by far the best action camera in its class and it is better than many action/video cameras costing several times more.
