Photographing a Bride and Groom – Digital Photography Tip of the Week

Today’s tip is a simple one, yet effective one.

A bride and groom can be one of the hardest subjects to expose well. The bride is usually dressed in a very white gown and the groom, a very black tuxedo. Together it is an exposure nightmare. One trick to helping with this is to place the bride furthest from the lightsource. Her gown will act as a reflector and pop a little bit of light back into the groom’s tuxedo, thereby helping with the exposure dilemma.

Until next time, Happy Shooting.
