Look for a Detail Shot

Man and Wife

Quick tip today - always look for a detail shot, something that helps tell the story of the event you're shooting. This is especially great if you're planning on doing some sort of book or other multiple photo layout from the event.

Take today's photo - the connection between bride and groom. Not something you'd get a large framed print of, but it was a great addition to the photo book my wife made of the wedding.

Here's another example from when I was taking photos before a school play:

Again, not something you would probably print on its own, but it was a nice addition to the set of people getting ready and added to the overall story.

Keep an eye out for the detail shots. You'll be glad you did
