Wedding-day photography is an art. From deciphering drastic ISO changes between the high-noon portraits and the dark, subdued chapel, while still capturing the elation of a new bride and the bitter-sweet emotions of her proud father, to orchestrating eight family members into a well-poised portrait, you will be sure to feel like a maestro by the end of this whirlwind day.
Off the cuff, one might think there are few, if any, differences between packing a DSLR system and an HDSLR system, but once you look beyond the basics, i.e. the camera bodies, lenses and tripod (the legs, but not necessarily the head), the differences start adding up.
Making pictures of the bride as she prepares for the wedding requires spontaneity while catching the decisive moment with a tactful attitude. A wedding day generates tensions on all sides—and as a neutral third party you should be an understanding, positive force for the duration.
With the right tools, outdoor wedding photography can be a nice contrast to the more formal, controlled-light look of photographs taken within the confines of a catering hall or other wedding-centric indoor location.
We're big fans of pocket cameras simply because, unlike bulkier DSLRs, they're more likely to be handy when you need them. With the exception of newer point-and-shoot digicams and bridge cameras with10x-, 15x-, and 20x-plus zoom lenses, most pocket cams come up short when it comes to satisfying wider angle and/or longer telephoto needs. If your digicam features a threaded lens mount or accessory ring, Zeikos offers a selection of optical extenders that enables you to capture wider fields of view—including fisheye—as well as longer telephoto shots.
