The most important day of your life deserves the best wedding film! In this blog post, we will outline tips for creating a memorable and professional wedding video. These tips include what to wear, how to set up a shot, and more!
After reading this, you will know all about reverent wedding films!
What to Wear? You should wear something you feel comfortable in. If it is a dressy occasion, consider wearing black or white instead of red and green which can be distracting on camera. The makeup artist may also ask for your input about what looks best with the colour scheme of your wedding ceremony; that way, everyone will look great!
Natural light vs artificial lighting – Which should I choose? When filming outside during daylight hours, always try to film under natural outdoor lighting rather than using indoor tungsten (yellow) light source as this tends to make people appear orange-toned on screen.
Also, avoid windows showing direct sunlight whenever possible since these create harsh shadows across faces and details such as wedding rings can become lost.
How to set up a shot? If you are filming your first look (or “couple’s first sighting of each other on the wedding day”), be sure that the couple is not standing in front of an open window unless they want sunlight streaming down over their faces!
Also, please do not ask them to smile bright since it will cause reflections from shiny teeth or fill light to be added, so everyone looks great for the camera.
Where should I sit during my ceremony? Sitting near any reflective surfaces such as windows and glass doors can create distracting glare visible on video footage; this problem becomes even more apparent if there happens to be strong lighting shining directly into the window.
If possible, move elsewhere to sit during your ceremony!
How do I frame my shots? It is best not to shoot directly at the sun with a lens with poor flare control or no filter threads; instead, try tilting up slightly above the horizon line of the sun, so it does not look like its source sits right in front of it you.
Using this type of shot, everyone will appear well lit, and full details (like wedding rings) can be seen without any problems whatsoever!
In conclusion, it is important to understand the best ways of using natural light and controlling indoor lighting when filming a wedding for ideal results. Remember always to consider setting up shots in advance, so everyone looks their absolute best on camera!
