One of the disadvantages of digital photography, we all know the many advantages, is the confidence it gives to complete beginners to accept wedding photography commissions. With film there would be a cost of about £1 for every shot taken, and you would not know how the pictures were until processed.

Now the cost is negligible and the images can be checked as you go along. This has resulted in more complaints about wedding photographs than ever before.

There are very few good wedding photographers. Lots and lots of bad ones and not nearly enough good ones to go round.  So it is worth getting properly trained which requires careful planning, effective training and lots of hard work. Rome was not built in a day.

You can’t learn photography out of a book. It is like learning a sport. For example, you go to a tennis, skiing or  golf professional who shows some basic things, and then you go away and practice before returning for another lesson. Similarly in photography your tutor will show and demonstrate, you practice with him/her, then go away and take images on your own. The tutor will critique those images and you take them again, having in mind the critique.

This is the only way to improve. Short one, two day, or even four day courses cannot get you to be a good wedding photographer. Regular sessions over a 6 month period are required to optimise the learning process.

Our next Wedding Photography Course starts on Sunday 18th January 2015
