d200 shooting wedding in bright sun
Posted on 2009-05-17
I have been shooting weddings for a while and I have ran into this problem more than once.
I'm mainly asking for some advise. The problem is that all my brides want their weddings a noon.... outside in the bright sun. Although I can control the portrait shots, I have a hard time keeping the wedding dress from overexposing during the wedding. ( since I can't stick them in the shade ) I shoot at a high shutter, about a 400 iso, and anywhere between 5.6-7 fstop. Most of the dress is perfect for the most part, only certain areas are overexposed and contain a bluish hue. and and I can't figure out how to keep that from happening. Even if I under expose the shot, certain areas of the dress is still overexposed. Right now, I'm correcting it in photoshop, but what can I do during a wedding to help? Do I set a custom white balance? <--( I know this may help with the blue)
