The light is the raw material of photography and learn to take advantage of it is essential to have quality work. Couples who are getting married at night, you need to give a great importance to the type of light that will be used, since without it there is no photo. These Tips for wedding can help your marriage to be even better.
It is so important that the type of lighting used in a marriage can completely transform the environment. What do you want? A warm climate, stripped, romantic? Talk to your advisor, your decorator, with DJ and of course, with your wedding photographer is very important. The work of these two first will influence, and what will be your marriage for the rest of their lives, photography.
I’ll explain and give here some tips for wedding that I consider important in lighting.
Lighting Of The Bride And Groom At The Ceremony
If the wedding is being held in an environment with low light and only the bride and groom will be illuminated with a light beam on them, in the photograph that means the bride and groom will be well in the photo, however, the guests, even the godparents, will not appear. That’s because the camera can’t see the light and dark at the same time. Everything has to be with the same light intensity.Therefore, if the bride’s mother is thrilled at the time of photo of alliances, for example, she won’t leave the picture. You worry about the correct lighting in ceremony, where people are also illuminated.
Use of candles is a very romantic and that leaves the environment charming. But be careful that the environment don’t get extremely dark. Consider seeing your photographer’s work in darker environments to make sure he knows how to capture the beauty of the charm of the lights that you, along with the Decorator, built.
It is important to make sure that the place where will be held the ceremony, both the bride and groom as guests are well lit. Decorative lights plays indirectly on the wall for example, are not sufficient to illuminate the bride and groom and guests. They serve only as decoration. So the photographer or videographer will need an additional light. Study this with your decorator, illuminator and photographer for best results.
Colored Lighting In Ceremony
Be careful with the use of colored lights at the ceremony. The blue lights, red and green usually appear in the ceremonies that take place in the same space. These lights at the front desk can arrange to leave space with vibrant colors, but the ceremony is not the place nor the climate to resemble skin tones in blue or red.And there’s no photoshop that solve! Lights reflect, even if they are not directed to the bride and groom and guests. No one wants to look like an alien!
The guest is looking like the Hulk and the decor very different from the one you dreamed of! Is not a rule, but it’s good to avoid, especially in indirect lights and decorations if those colors of light are used in some location where you want to make the family photos. In receptions in the green light illuminates spaces with trees, I try to get away from bright lights, she reaches the skin and also tarnishes.
The color orange is warm and cozy, but if placed near the bride and groom, even if pointed at the wall, can stain the skin. Plan well where this type of light, very beautiful and used, it’s going to be.
Lighting The Wedding Cake
It is common to put a bright light pointed at the time cutting cake and toast.When there is a very big difference in light between an object and another (bride and groom, guests and the cake) one will be very clear and the other very dark, and in some cases may not appear or will appear in the photo with the all-white skin.
If there is a very strong light in the cake and the couple who’s right behind there is the same light intensity, the photo will not be good. In this case or the couple leaves dark or the cake comes out all white, without details. One or the other gets hurt. It is important that all are bright and with the same intensity of light always.
The Dance Floor
Which in my opinion can not miss is light on the dance floor. Often the band is very well lit and the track lacks light. The light that I consider ideal for the dance floor are four light points, two in front and two behind, causing that light Cross and no matter where I shoot, I can record the effects of it. The light illuminating on the diagonals of the Center is what provides a nice atmosphere in the photo and filming. Ceiling light is welcome, since it does not occupy space on the track, but it is necessary that these lights are far apart from each other. A jumble of light on a single point does not solve.
Smoke On The Dance Floor
Although many don’t like it, I think it’s essential, because the smoke draws the light and create amazing effects. As I don’t use direct light on my photo-always have an Assistant, I can take advantage of and use the smoke in my favor. Of course, if the smoke is in excess, there’s no way to see and much less shooting.Common sense always. Talk to the DJ to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Impossible to shoot while it is on. Can be a nice effect to some at the time of dancing, but the picture represents that of every 100 pictures, a, with luck, will survive.
Some DJs and Illuminators utilize the laser effect on the dance floor. In the picture, in most cases, the laser spoils the picture. Nothing worse than a stain on the skin at the time you were dancing their first dance. If the click Exit at the moment when the laser is on the guest, ruined the picture. It’s a very strong beam of light that will stain the skin.
There are still cases where the laser can damage the sensor of the camera when the beam of light goes straight at the time of the click. For which the equipment is not damaged, I don’t photograph if there is that light. I’ve read reports of people who have vision problems after the laser went in the eye.
