It is important that you pose or pose when taking pictures. For this, first you need to know your own body well. What’s your best posture? Do not you know?
- You must have done some practice for your best posture and angle. Try not to repeat bad postures or expressions in your previously taken photos.
- Your posture and exposure are important when taking pictures. A dull look is the last thing we want. A warm, natural smile is necessary to prevent this. Try to take a deep breath, look natural, without artificial smile, excitement.
- Try not to look directly at the lens.
- One of your shoulders is looking towards the lens and the other is slightly behind. You can also pose by turning it slightly to the right on your face.
- One leg slightly comes forward and the other leg may be left behind.
- Even if you can slightly raise your chin, your neck will look longer and wrinkles will appear less.
- Also, to make your eyes look better, close them a while before they are taken and then open them slowly for shooting. Try not to look directly at the lens.
It is a rule not only for wedding photos, but for all photos. Don’t your favorite pictures come out of the laughing hearts, regardless of the lens? So don’t pose and forget the camera, apart from the classic bride-groom poses on your wedding day.
The support of the photographer is important. Because you can be sure that you will capture great frames with a professional taking your stressful wife and your stress while taking photos and making you feel as much as possible while photographing you. In that case, you’il just have fun.
You have to think and decide what kind of shot you want. Is it in the atmosphere of a historical place, in a natural area that contains all the seasonal tones, or in a place that can add a different atmosphere to the photo? In order to make the right decision, we recommend that you look at the different photographs that contain the places you think, go to the place if possible and give a detailed talk about the shooting.
In order for the most important day to be reflected in the photos in the best way, first of all, the communication with the wedding photographer you will work with should be very good. Each wedding is different and unique, and each photographer has a unique style.

Sometimes the photographer needs to be invisible while walking among the guests. Their equipment must match. It should be able to capture the best shots without distorting the magic of the moment by shooting remotely without using Flash.
Framing is the technique of drawing attention to the subject of your image by blocking other parts of the image with something in the scene. Adding a focal point through framing shows a viewer exactly where to look. For example; giving the photo context, giving images a sense of depth and layers, leading the eye towards your main focal point and intriguing your viewer etc.
Using architectural objects and natural elements to make a great frame can convey the feeling of walking trough the forest or a building a feeling of stepping into the photographer’s shoes and looking at the world trough his or her eyes.
Photography is a memory from all corners of the world, abstracting and recording a certain composition captured. The viewer who looks at the photograph can visualize the part outside the frame and before or after the moment in his or her imagination. As you visualize the book in your dreams when you read. The photographer also gives the viewer only the part in the frame. The better the abstraction, the more striking the subject. The distraction of distracting objects and unnecessary areas makes the subject more visible. And if you also abstract the photo from the colors, you can often give the photograph’s spirit and the feeling it wants to give better. To tell a love with black and white …
A camera works somewhat like the human eye, capturing reflected light from objects and through a camera lens and focusing those light rays into an image. Photographers control the camera and lens to “expose” the light recording material. Light that is in the reds , oranges and yellows is said to be “warm”, conversely, “cool” light is blue.
Lighting plays a crucial role in photography. Taking a good photo requires getting the right amount of light to the sensor or film. It can bring a photograph to life. For example natural light refers to sunlight/daylight. Natural light is less controllable, and it varies greatly depending on numerous conditions such as time of day, season, weather, and geographical location. Artificial light refers to all kinds of light sources, including fluorescent lights, electric lights, flash, and so on. Images are affected by different lighting conditions, setting up the desired lighting environment, adjusting your camera settings. The colour of a photo will affect emotional responses.
Photographs are the universal language of our era. Photography allows us to show others our own view of the World. Creating a photograph is mixture of science and art. Subject, composition, light, and exposure are very important for photographic accomplishment.
Every photographer has a point of interest. Shoot what’s important to you. You should find something you are interested in or experience in. Most popular types of photography are fashion, photojournalism, sports, events, wildlife, newborn, wedding, etc.In short, you must create a story.
