The Best of Wedding Photojournalism - There are two types of wedding shooters: traditional, that provide the usual images we've all seen in albums - and the photojournalist approach where capturing the spirit and emotion of the event is conveyed.
In this book, the author shows you how to take the second approach and achieve those special images that make people smile, cry and sigh years after they were taken. Capturing that special moment is an art and within the pages of this book you'll learn how to "negotiate" the event. Knowing where to be, when to be there and how to get the shot is just as critical as knowing your exposures.
You'll learn what gear you need, minimizing distractions from flash, shooting indoors and out, verbal requests and working before, during and after the event. In addition, you'll see how to work with and without an assistant, archiving digital files and deciding on an album design.
