This course is designed by Paul Wolfgang Webster for both photographers who have been asked to cover a family/friend’s wedding and those considering a career in wedding photography. It is delivered by Paul W Webster and Robert Kicka in an exciting and hands on manner, to give all attendees the feel of covering a real event. The setting includes buildings or industrial and landscape backgrounds to give all a flavour of working in less than ideal locations.
On the day of the course there will be a recap session for 30 mins on using ISO, apertures, shutter speeds, lenses needed and exposure. This is then followed by practical sessions, working with real couples, and all manner of wedding accessories. You’ll learn how to work with people, how to pose them, how to use the best lighting, flash lighting, studio lighting. You will start to build up a portfolio of your own wedding photographs.
