I was ask to shoot for a wedding next month (back up photographer). Here are few questions that I need your advise.
1) What setting do you normally shoot for the various situation:
- Tea Ceremony
- Match in
Which of this setting do you use most? Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or Manual.
I have seen some really nice wedding pictures from some of the experts here and wonder how some of the effect is being capture for eg:
- In the tea ceremony, all the people in the foreground and back ground all sharp and nicely lite. I know to get the sharpness I can set the Aperture to about 5.6 but however, when the flash is thrown, those people nearer to the camera will be too bright.
- In the hotel ballroom and during match in, I have seen really nice one like the couple matching in and the whole ball room nicely lite up. I have read that in order to get this result, I can set the settings to higher ISO maybe ISO 800 and having a Aperture of about f5.6 and shutter set at 1/30s. But I have tried it at home and the result is not as nice as those I have seen from those professional's website.
Last but not least, any good advise that I have to take note of?
Thank you for taking time to read this thread.
Will be glad to receive some advise.
