Avoid stilted portraits – there will be plenty of formal portraits taken, so go for the utterly informal. This could be people chatting or laughing together, children playing – anything that breaks the stiff formality of the event. You could even consider taking a shot of the photographer taking photos of the wedding party.

Blend modes: Make a copy of the Gaussian Blur layer and then apply the Screen Blend mode for an even brighter, almost ethereal portrait. Compare this image to the originals (see Use a camera filter to create a soft, romantic portrait). Shoot portraits of people at work When we shoot people in their working environment – whatever that may be – we have a greater chance of capturing their true character. Their workplace not only provides a great foil to a portrait, but it also adds interest to the scene.

When shooting an occasion – a wedding, for example – get to know what will happen and when, so you don’t miss out on any opportunities. • Ensure there’s an obvious subject in each shot; something for the eye to land on as a base for exploring the image. • Aperture Priority mode: Use Aperture Priority mode to control the depth of field in the scene. Go for small apertures when you have large groups or spaces to keep sharp, or wide apertures with shallow depth of field when you want to isolate selected people.
