    hi all!

    i aint so new to photography but new to wedding photo.
    wanted to ask couple of questions about wedding photography.

    1. what white balance do i set the camera to?
    do i use an automatic w/b or a preset measured from the lights?
    2. do i need to use the "portrait" option on the operating knob in order to make those nice shots?

    is there a general tutorial to wedding photo?

    tnx for the tips.

    The WB should be set to whatever is appropriate for the lighting you are shooting in. You might be in a church, outdoors, in a hall etc. Sometimes the Automatic setting works well...sometimes not. The ideal solutions is to shoot in RAW and then you have the ability to adjust the WB after the shoot.


    No, you don't need to. I've had my current camera for a year and a half, and I have never used any of those 'picture' modes.

    There are plenty, Google is your friend.
