Experience Seminars are pleased to announce the launch of our latest training DVD

The Essential Guide to Wedding Photography


Our essential guide to wedding photography looks at the things that you need to understand when shooting a wedding, either for friends and family or if looking to shoot weddings commercially.

The DVD looks a wide range of topics ranging from the planning of the photography on the day, what images to take and the amount of the wedding you cover, through to looking at the camera and flash settings that will give the very best results. We also take a look at the equipment requirements for coping with the very challenging conditions that you can find yourself shooting in.

To give a better insight as to what is involved when shooting weddings professionally we have collaborated on this DVD with Angela Humble who is a successful full time wedding photographer. Angela covers a wide range of weddings in an average year ranging from small civil ceremonies through to elaborate ceremonies in some stunning locations and so is well positions to give a real insight into the challenges faces by photographers.

This DVD is specific to just Canon EOS cameras due to the large amount of the time that we talk about the flash system and its set up with the cameras, although similar to other brands the settings are made in different places.
