How to Light a Wedding Reception

The good people at recently released a 22 min video from their much longer wedding DVD for professional wedding photographers.

The current video walks through 4 different lighting methods for lighting up reception weddings. Unlike many other photography types, shooting a wedding and in particular shooting a reception can be very difficulty without adding lights – the event usually takes place in the evening or at night, sometimes outside or in a place which is very badly lit and so learning how to place your lights currently is extremely important and this is exactly what this video is all about.

You can find many more useful tutorials, tips and tricks on LensVid’s wedding photography section.
