This is Why You Need To Hire a Real Photographer

Although this is an old video, I have not seen it before, and it is quite comical. This is exactly why you should view a wedding photographer’s portfolio before signing an agreement. Here’s a tip: If you ask your wedding photographer what speed their lens is and they reply “I don’t know”, they’re not a real photographer!

Have Your 2012 Wedding Filmed and Photographed for Free

StillMotion is giving away a “photo and cinema” prize of $15,000. While I still don’t fully understand the rules, I believe they are asking couples to share their stories about how they met, their relationship, and their ideal wedding. One winner will be chosen, at which point, they will essentially have their 2012 wedding filmed and photographed by 4 professionals. More details below.

The Epic Battle of Photographers vs. Videographers

The following short film was created at After Dark, which is a photographic education opportunity located in Tucson, Arizona. I don’t know what else to say, other than this video took a lot of planning and resources (namely people) to pull off. It truly is “Epic”.

Jasmine Star Releases "Exposed" Magazine

If you follow the work of Jasmine Star, you will already know she is one of the hardest working photographers in the industry. Somehow in her hectic schedule, she was able to find time to put together a magazine called Exposed, which is focused on the ups and downs of wedding photography. If you haven’t seen her work, follow the link below, and you just might be pursuaded to purchase her magazine which sells for $22.99.

Ridiculous Wedding Lawsuit

Unbelievable.

Is it fair to sue your wedding photographer because he missed a couple shots? Perhaps.

Is it reasonable to sue your wedding photographer for something that happened 6 years ago? Perhaps.

Is it reasonable to sue for $48,000 so that you can recreate your wedding day? Probably not.

And what if I told you that plaintiff and his wife had already divorced and she has since returned to her home country of Latvia? Yes you read that right.

I’m surprised lawsuits like this are even allowed to make it in the system. I feel awful for the photography studio who took on this wedding, as they have had to pony up more than $50,000 in legal fees thus far.

The Business of Photography: Perception vs Reality

Most people don’t understand how much work goes into wedding photography. They think you show up, take a few photos, and that’s it. ISPWP put out a survey to which 50 photographs responded. As you can see in the graph, on 12% of a photographer’s time is spent actually taking photographs. The rest of the time is spent editing, advertising, and general business duties.

"A Moving Moment" – Wedding Photography in Slow Motion

Lee Morris of Fstoppers created a beautiful wedding video by shooting at 60 frames per second, then playing them back at regular speed (24 fps). The whole idea behind the technique was to slow things down enough that it looked more like a moving photograph than a video. Did it work? Let’s just say I think the results speak for themselves.
