Robert does a great job explaining some very simple, yet effective techniques to create beautiful detail shots. His simple technique of shooting the rings and shoes on or against contrasting back grounds is a very effective way to make the details pop in the image. His thoughts on not taking hundreds of photos of the same thing is important to remember. There are a lot of detail shots to be made and you need to be as efficient as possible to capture all of them.

I really enjoyed the tips and tricks Robert mentions in this video. I feel that his tips are simple, effective, and produce great results. I highly suggest that you practice shooting details on your own at home. It’s very easy to set up some rings, flowers, shoes, and maybe even a cake to refine your techniques and be very efficient on the actual wedding day.
