Many of us know about the primary shades, we all have learnt about them in school. They are the colors that can’t be made by mixing two colors, they are primary colors of a color wheel. While a standard artist color wheel makes use of red, yellow and blue as primary colors many photographers think regarding RBG (red, blue and green) color spectrum.
Secondary colors are a result of the mixing of primary colors. On the photographers color wheel, these shades are orange, purple and green.
Tertiary colors are created by combining the secondary and primary shades. For instance, when using the first yellow, blue and red hues wheel mixing the orange and red or green and blue would result in tertiary hues.
One of the most common links is between the additional hues. Complementary colors fall in the opposite from one another on the color board. These colors develop high contrast and grab the viewer attention.
Analogous hues are next to each other on the wheel. Making use of similar shades create a more harmonious shade scheme and low-contrast.
The monochromes are usually referred as black and white; monochromatic shades are made from hues of just one hue, for example, several different tones of blue. Monochromatic shades are low in contrast and usually create a soothing look.
The size of the image sensor in a digital camera is limited. These sensors are smaller than the regular 35mm film frame. This may result in a lot of issues, such as pixel noise and light sensitivity, to name a few. you can’t find many user-oriented camera that have full frame sensors. So, their sensors are not as good as those found in film cameras.
On the other hand, you can find film media in many sizes ranging from 35mm to 135mm. it’s important to keep in mind that even the smallest size of the film doesn’t match the 24x36m film. In simple words, film cameras offer higher “resolution” than digital cameras.
As far as film photography goes, dust and dirt is a common problem; however, digital photography is effected more by the dust and dirt. If dust gets into the camera and reaches the sensor, you won’t be able to take clear shots.
Negatives have higher integrity than digital photos. In other words, negatives are taken as an evidence of the image authenticity. There are a lot of programs out there that allow you to modify digital images. So, the scope for falsification of digital photos is wider, which is not true for film photography.
Storage, backups, and other Costs
You don’t need a storage medium in case of a film camera. All you need is a film reel. Moreover, the film reels are not as prone to damage as digital cameras. Even if you mishandle the reel, you may end up damaging a frame or two. The rest of frames will be intact.
On the other hand, you need large memory cards and hard drives to store digital pictures. If the storage medium is damaged, you will find it extremely hard to recover the photos you shot. All of the data will be gone forever.
As if anxiety wasn’t heavy enough, the dress adds a ton
Wearing a wedding gown, first thing is that there will be many eyes on you, especially if you are on a stage or runway. Anxiety might take its upper hand and moreover, there’s a heavy dress to shoulder around. This means that smiling and being comfortable becomes a harder task than expected. Photographers thus have to understand this and be a leader in the course of activities. They should use comforting words or humor to get the model to relax and joyfully smiling as Bridal photographs ought to be.
Consequentially, Bridal photography is best when candid moments such as romantic looks, or couples are laughing with each other are shot. Achieving this is an additional level of difficulty where the photographer has to facilitate the couples to be at ease with each other to churn out the most natural and appealing photos.
There will be difficult people to deal with
Kids are one example, and many other people will also constantly be in the way as they want to communicate with each other, or in the case of kids who are just too active will pose many difficulties during the photo shoot. The photographer has to be patient and of course be aware of such challenges.
For a wedding or bridal shoot, bulk of the time will go to make up and dress up the model to look perfect. Also, something we can never control is the weather if shooting outdoors. As such a need to be fast and efficient is expected of the photographer. With all the other challenges working within a time limit will be the toughest part yet.
