It is not my truly attention to be a wedding photographer at all but I always welcome any sort of experience in that area. It will be handy if I want to capture a wedding moment for my family member in the future. My wish finally came true. My frenz asked for help for his wedding job. I am more than happy to help him as part of my learning curve.
Before this, I always browse through the Internet on any sort of wedding picture, especially in Malaysia. Just to get the idea and tricks for a better picture. Browsing lots of wedding pictures, I can’t help but speak to myself that lots of these pictures can be improved in certain way. I can find constantly lots of technical mistake in the pictures. Some of it does not even deserve to be uploaded in the Internet. Yet, the photographer can earn handsome rewards for that kind of pictures. I just could not understand it at the beginning.
But after I involved myself in the area, I finally found the answer to it. It is way too difficult than I thought. I have to admit, a photographer that can deliver a good result for wedding job…is an extraordinary photographer. My salute to him/her.
The difficulties that I mean are different from one wedding to another. A wedding in a big hall is even difficult compare to having the same event in a house (for photographer). Finding the right setting of the camera, the right moment, the right angle…all that require you to work very quick and sharp. The event will never wait for you. In my case, I ended up snap as many as I can and think later.
At least, two photographers are required in any wedding ceremony. Otherwise, the possibility of missing the right moment is high. For many people in the world, wedding is a significant moment in their life. As a hired photographer, it is your job to capture that wonderful moment so that it will be forever remember.
I’m quite happy with my result. These are just from my camera alone. Combine with my partner’s pictures; I believe it will be better. It was a very good experience and I’m looking for my next wedding job this coming weekend. To Raihan...Selamat Pengantin Baru...
