Preparing wedding photographers to navigate these once-in-a-lifetime events, this resource acknowledges the highly emotional clients, shifts in natural lighting, and changes in location that come with the territory. Showcasing countless techniques for shooting with flash by itself, ambient light alone, or a combination of the two, the chapters provide elegant solutions to an array of potential lighting challenges that can surface on the wedding day.

From selecting the right equipment for a versatile yet streamlined wedding-day kit to making smart adjustments to settings, all bases are covered.

    Great Wedding Flash book!

    This is another great book from Mark Chen. It gives you a realistic look into the style and technique of a wedding photographer, but would also easily apply to anyone who documents for a living. As always, Mark injects his humor into his explanations, and even adds some comic relief with his Ant cartoons! He also includes some of his extensive knowledge about using Camera RAW, and how it can get you out of a bind. Chen has made another enjoyable book about something that could easily be boring. Mark is a great teacher, and it shows in this book.
