Wedding Workshop Four | Photographing The Couple: Inside the Veil
Inside the Veil
If you’ve never used live view in your camera, now is the time. When setting up a shot from inside the veil, live view gives a more accurate representation of the lighting and lens flares that occur when the veil conceals the lens. Although using live view is not absolutely necessary, it is a helpful tool worth mentioning.
Tips for shooting inside the veil:
- Wide angle lens (24/35mm)
- Wide aperture prime ideal
- Expose for dynamic range
- Veil to conceal lens
- Control flare with fingers or gobo
- Don’t over conceal
- Shoot for good shape
Remember, when shooting with a wide angle lens, we recommend keeping your couple more towards the center of the frame to avoid distorting them.
