Lighting And Timing- How To Get It Right In a D-Day Photography Session

Upon choosing a photographer having a good profile generally gives you some awesome photos on your d-day, which will be excellent in timing, lighting and weather. However, when you are looking for some extraordinary efforts, there will be something to reward with your final photos.

When it comes to timing and lighting, these two things are connected. Just as the day-light changes from the dawn to sunset, so too does throughout the year. The cooler months provide great light, which is quite softer than the harsh daylight in the month of the Summer. With lighting during summers, it creates soft lighting at the beginning and the end of the day.

So, with proper lighting, we can yield some amazing results. But how? Well, it all comes down to the use of some contrasting colour and how our photographer is interacting with the clients. Less heavy shadows, comfortable subjects (less heat or more flattering skin tones) makes a great wedding photography in Melbourne. Did you know increasing the light can enhance the beauty of the location?

Decide the Best Light for Wedding Photo:

It is generally the time early morning just after the sunrise and when the sun is about to set. This is the warm and golden light help in making some beautiful photos.

Also, be flexible to prepare based on the weather condition- on a cloudy day, the daylight goes away 30 minutes earlier than on a day with clear skies or partial clouds. So, you might need to get early to choose the couple shots before it gets dark.

Time the Photos for the Best Lights:

Do research to know which day to pan out. Search by location and see the sunrise/sunset and let that guide you. Moreover, our professional Melbourne wedding photographers play a couple of tricks to use the location for the best photos.

Set a Wedding Timeline:

When it comes planning your wedding timeline, why not make most of the light spending maximum time with the guests. In summers, the late in the day, in the span of 7:30 to 8:30 in the evening- it will work well for the party time after the wedding. When it comes to deciding the timing part of your wedding, be conscious about how quickly light goes and consider this in planning.

Get Some Unnatural Light:

Depending on how much available light is there, photographers like to shoot with the mix of artificial light, which might be LED panels or flashes used on camera. So, when deciding the venues, don’t forget to find the lighting options there or if there is any restriction. For example, some churches don’t allow flashes to be used. Hence, get all these information and notify our photographers ahead of time if any restriction is there.

Lastly, be a little conscious about the backlit spot, which can happen when you’re standing with your back in front of a place that is streaming light. It creates a result of shadowing you by causing an unflattering light scenario. Talk to our photographer at 0417 399 273 and let us combat such situations, by shooting your moments from exact angle.
