Some photographers recommend a second photographer. Often the need
depends on the size of your wedding and on the number of guests. At some

What is ISO speed and why should you care?

Posted by Mike Voss on Wednesday, February 8, 2012, In : improving your photography 

If you want to take your photography to the next level you’ll need to learn
what some of your camera’s manual settings mean, and how to make them
work for you. ISO is a good place to start.

ISO stands for International Standardization Organization and their film
speed ratings are used to indicate the amount of light necessary for a proper
photo exposure. A film, or digital media, rated at ISO 200 requires half as much
