This is nowadays used in Pre Wedding ceremonies(like Haldi or Mehandi) also to shoot the special moment of the person to be a highlight. A small mean of an interval to be offered to take a close-up moment. Cinematography is another way to capture the moment of the scene in the shot films. It is also a great camera skill needed to allow to capture some happy and dramatic moments.
Different Lenses are needed to capture every emotion, to give a certain look, feel, or effect, etc. Cinematographers can select different lenses for different purposes. A person in the distance is shown as much smaller while someone in the front will zoom in large to shoot the moment. The increased usage of filters can greatly impact the final image and affect the lighting.
Light is necessary to create an image exposure on a frame of film. The art of lighting for cinematography goes far beyond basic exposure, however, into the essence of visual storytelling. Lighting contributes considerably to the emotional response an audience has watched a motion picture. The increased usage of filters can greatly impact the final image and affect the lighting.
The cinematographer uses a camera, which represents the audience’s viewpoint or perspective that moves during the course of framing. This movement plays a considerable role in the emotional language of images and the audience’s emotional reaction to the actions.
Important to Shoot a Cinematic Wedding Video:
- Practice a lot with the camera to get a perfect shoot.
- Don’t shoot too much footage, keep it short, creative and try to make a story out of it in your mind.
- Be light and always be ready to capture if suddenly something is started happening around you.
Weddings can be very challenging shooting environments, not only in terms of the event itself but also in terms of lighting. So it’s a good idea to be prepared and have a camera and lenses that work well in low light conditions.
