When shooting photos for a wedding, or for any other event, you want things to go quickly and smoothly, and so do your clients. Being able to make quick adjustments makes you less stressed and look more professional, plus it saves you and your client time. Wedding photographer Doug Gordon has created a tutorial showing how to set up an easily adjustable shoot and the importance of doing so:
The first thing you’ll probably notice about the video is that he’s pushing the Pocket Wizard product. But he doesn’t go over the top with it, and he gives some really good advice on how to build some light set-ups and how important it is that you can change those set-ups when you need to.
The main point is that its a good idea to invest in gear that will save you time and effort. In Gordon’s case, the Pocket Wizard allows him to shoot alone without having to worry about his assistant making the right changes to his settings. He has complete control over the shoot and can make adjustments with just the push of a few buttons.
