Wedding photographers can often get away with using dirty wedding photos as a cover-up if they don’t have the proper gear, according to a new study. The study conducted by British photographers, from a range of backgrounds, found that the biggest risk is not that the photographer is using a dirty wedding photo, but that they don´t know how to use the images properly.
A few examples were the photographer not properly framing the image and not using a filter that would remove the light that could cause it to appear washed out, and the photographer using a negative image to show off their wedding ring instead of a positive one, the study found.
It also found that, despite a lack of technical knowledge, the wedding photographer has a great deal of control over how the images are processed.
They don’t always have to be in their best interest, said study author, Jess Clements.
They have the power to manipulate the images in any way they see fit and the results can be spectacular.
The researchers, led by researcher and photographer Jess Cates, said they wanted to get a snapshot of wedding photography in 2016, and to compare it to what they had seen in the past.
They analysed over 3,000 wedding images and found that there are some significant changes to the way that wedding photography has changed over the past two decades.
The biggest of which was the adoption of digital photography, which is now widely used by most wedding photographers.
The study found that most wedding images had been shot on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or a PC, and that digital wedding photography was used in nearly 80 per cent of all weddings, compared to around 25 per cent in the early 1990s.
Many wedding photographers were also using a wider range of lenses, and were using digital filters that had been designed for a different kind of wedding.
The use of negative images in wedding photography could also lead to a lot of photographers using dirty images in order to show their clients off and be seen as “professional” wedding photographers, the researchers found.
And the research found that many wedding photographers had used negative images before they were actually using their best-looking wedding images, even when those images had previously been in their portfolio.
There are a few options available for wedding photographers who wish to shoot in a more professional way, and this study found a couple of them that could be used.
“For many photographers, using negative images to capture their images in a professional way is a very useful option, especially if they are using their images for a wedding shoot and are unsure of what their wedding images look like, or if they wish to make sure they capture the best image possible,” the researchers said.
“Many of these photographers have used negative image formats and filters before, so it is important to understand what they are doing and what their limitations are to get the best images.”
Jess Clements, from the British Wedding Photography Association, said there are still some major risks involved when it comes to wedding photography.
“The main risks are that they are not taking care of their equipment properly, and sometimes they donít have the right filters,” she said.
“They may also be using outdated equipment that doesn’t have a good enough light exposure, which can make the image look washed out.”
They also need to be aware of the different standards of quality for wedding images.
There is no guarantee that a photographer will use a wedding photograph without the proper equipment.
