The right light
During the ceremony, there may not be much light and you are unlikely to be able to use flash. To overcome this you should consider increasing the ISO on your camera. Some PowerShot and IXUS models feature a Low Light Shooting Mode which will set your camera automatically for the best results. Try taking pictures before the bride arrives and review the results – you won’t get a second chance once she arrives!
Don’t become the centre of attention
This is a special day for the couple that you have been invited to join in – but you shouldn’t take over! And do remember, you are not the official wedding photographer, so do keep out of his or her way and don’t make too many demands on the married couple or other guests. Ensure you remember to switch off the sounds on your camera.
