3. Poor Lighting In Indian Weddings:

Weddings in India happen during the night. But why you see daylight shots more on photographer’s portfolios? Light and shadow is the law of nature.

Where there is a light, there must be a shadow. But the lighting aspects, in the context of photography, are overlooked in indian weddings.

May be, photographers are afraid to concede this point to you. Light up your wedding venue properly and you will surely have great memorable images in the night also.

Diffusing yellow light effect and right skin tone!


The suitable color theme is one with the effect of diffusing yellow or peach effect. Which you see at famous monuments also around the world.

I know, you want your color theme to be gorgeous or sparkling! Your wedding theme is always a background not a foreground.

If the people at the foreground is to be focused and photographed then the strongly lit up RGB color background can ruin photos.

If your photographer shoot on mounted flash, somehow, he/she can bring solution to some extent! But, You wanted candid shots! And mounted flash disturbs the subjects. Style of photographer matters and that’s your call to choose for your wedding.
