Four Different Wedding Photography Types can be offered by Wedding Photographers in Kolkata

As with every popular photography alcove, wedding photography allows photographers to explore their imaginative freedom while seeking inspiration from others. This results in wedding photographers in Kolkata having several “distinct” styles, depending on their aimed purpose.

These paths are not strict standards followed by wedding photographers in Kolkata, especially since every style tends to be fused with other styles. But of course, it’s a good intention to understand them if you’re interested in becoming a wedding photographer in Kolkata and developing a unique style of your own.

Photojournalistic-Wedding-Photography

Photojournalistic Wedding Photography:  A lot of imaginations and inventiveness are required for this wedding photography style, not to mention some essential skill in quickly adjusting camera settings, framing, and shooting as moments unravel around the photographer. Aside from that, photographers in Kolkata will have to blend in, sometimes with a telephoto lens to easily capture candid moments. The results are real and natural images that will evoke a flood of emotions.

Illustrative-Wedding-Photography

Illustrative Wedding Photography: Often used for pre-wedding photography sessions, illustrative wedding photography places emphasis on the composition, lighting, and background. The couple is asked to pose in an often picturesque environment, which makes this style an interesting blend of traditional and photojournalistic wedding photography. Illustrative wedding photography demands some skill in landscape photography, as well as in the use of wide-angle lenses and sometimes even aerial view photography.

Natural-Wedding-Photography

Natural Wedding Photography:  Natural wedding photography involves taking photos using innate light rather than with your camera flash or other artificial light sources. The result is obviously more expected, although it’s usually best for weddings in open area after sunrise and before sunset, or anytime in the day wherein the sun isn’t too grim so as to avoid shadows on the subjects’ faces. However, the photographer will have to be very skilled in dealing with shadows and other lighting obstacles. It’s usually best to use a bright lens with a wide aperture that allows more light in to achieve more well-exposed images for this type of captures. As long as you’re using the right white balance setting, the colour temperature of sunlight will instinctively result in warm photos and nice skin tones.

Fashion-Wedding-Photography

Fashion Wedding Photography: Also considered a type in itself, this wedding photography style focuses on showing off bridal fashion for commercial aspirations. However, we’ve seen this style cross over to a lot of actual wedding and engagement photos in recent years. With the use of lighting setups, trendy poses and expressions, and beautiful backgrounds, this style gives photographers opportunities to be imaginative and creative with their posed shots and for couples to be “models” for a day.

How to Make Your Wedding Photography Assignment Motivating & Not Boring as Wedding Photographer in Kolkata

wedding photography

Among all other avenues of professional photography, wedding photography is the toughest and the most boring for photographers in Kolkata. There is the rituals, ceremony and the solemn affairs bit in Indian Weddings. Then there is the headache of handling the relatives and chaos. Now the question is why wedding photography & filming the wedding ceremony is a boring affair?

 

As an experienced wedding photographer in Kolkata from my percipience, I can say that the boredom comes when you have a fixed format in mind and every wedding you are expecting to be fitted into that format. The ceremonial rituals are mostly scripted for all the communities and religions in India. The real weddings take place between the long-handed parts.

 

In today’s article, I will share my views on making the wedding photography an interesting affair for you as a wedding photographer in Kolkata.

1. Instead of filming or capturing the scripted movements, focus more into candid moments: Nothing but the storytelling approach can make your wedding photographs unique & interesting. So focus on the bride’s facial expression during the bridal shower or groom’s movement during the Haldi ceremony.

2. Never miss any happening into the wedding, shoot a lot & cut the best frame during the wedding: Never commit that you will deliver all the images taken during the events. So you will be able to film and capturing moments after moments and even the transitions between the moments and just photograph it.  For us, each frame is an amelioration over the previous. We shoot through the moment and deliver the peak of the moment. We will cull out 600 photos from the 20,00 in 6-10 minutes. To do this a photographer has to be emotionally precluded. Because during the wedding he/she and the team are fully entailed. And then we will cut 1000 images from 4000. That is really very time-consuming process.

3. Instead of insisting your bride for fake candids, capture some honest moments: Nowadays, capturing fake candid photographs of the bride during the makeup is in trend for the last five years in wedding photography in Kolkata. Stay away from such practice. Shoot when the makeup is half done or capture the moments when the bride is getting prepared. This small practice will be making differences.

Hope, this article based on my previous experiences and observations will help the aspiring photographers in Kolkata who are keen to shoot the various community weddings in Kolkata and across India.
