#1. Don’t Be Afraid to Shoot at HIGH ISOs
Many photographers opt to shoot using lower ISO values when shooting indoor wedding photographs. This is because of the fear of creating noise into the photo.
The technology of cameras as well as photo editing software has advanced to an extent where it’s possible to eliminate noise even when using very high ISO values.
The most potent ISO value you can utilize without sacrificing noise depends on the camera. Find out the maximum value and then try to capture within the limit. This will enable you to take photographs that are shake-free.
#2. Use High-Quality [Branded] Artificial Lights
Make sure to purchase high-end artificial lighting for your indoor shooting. It could be continuous light or flash.
I strongly suggest not to go for a cheap light. It could cause undesirable hue casts within the image, ruining the picture. They do this because they differ slightly in the color temperatures.
In addition, they may only work similarly if you utilize them for short periods.
#3. Select the Right Shutter Speed
The proper shutter speed will allow you to capture photos without blurring. If not, the subject might appear shaky in the photograph.
You must select the shutter speed based on the subject’s movement and lighting. You might find it challenging to try it the first few times.
Once familiar with this indoor wedding photography, you’ll discover the ideal shutter speed to suit indoor light conditions.
#4. Use Depth of Field to play
It’s also a good idea to play with the Depth of Field. Pictures can become boring If you take everything using the same aperture.
Try using smaller aperture values to create a beautiful background blur with gorgeous bokeh.
This is where you should be aware of the best time to use a low aperture. This is ideal when you take one-on-one portraits of the groom and bride. It’s also great for couples’ portraits.
#5. Make sure there is light in the subject’s eyes.
It is not worth taking a wedding photo when no illumination exists within your subject’s eyes. Also, ensure that the eyes are apparent in the photograph.
When you place the lights, it is essential to ensure adequate lighting for the subject. If your eyes are dimmer than the others and you cannot see them, you’ll struggle to correct them during editing.
#6. Capture Candid Shots
Wedding photography is only complete with candid photos. Candid photos help record the bride and groom’s emotions and family members’ emotions.
Having a zoom telephoto lens for taking candid photos is a good idea. A 70-200mm lens is the ideal choice for these photographs.
