Let’s talk about it straight! Today’s wedding themes are a big-time headache for Indian wedding photographers. You spend a fortune and time over wedding themes. Hardly, you see guests in the portfolios of event planners. The event planner is best at planning your event. He/She has little know-how about the technicalities of the photography. The right balance between an event planner and photographer is much needed.

Wedding Theme And The Right Color:

Every single person at your event contributes a bit of himself/herself on your special days. The event manager or the photographer also has to shoulder this responsibility. I always ask my couples whether they welcome the suggestions? Given the opportunity, I tell them! Right wedding themes or colors enhance the essence of every moment. The great ambiance filled with energy helps the photographers to create wow images. What if! It turns opposite. RGB based wedding theme is one of the reasons which causes trouble to capture candid moments.

Red LED effects have taken away the natural skin tone!

Light is a strength of a any photographer. Wedding themes Based on RGB (Red, Green & Blue) is messing up with the creative ideas of the photographers. A digital camera develops a color photo with in itself with the help of RGB. Setting up wedding themes based on RGB is a common practice in almost every third wedding in India. The chances get higher that your skin tone is not going to look real. Even if, you spend heavy time at the workplace of a famous make-up artist but his/her efforts may go in vain.

Blue LEDs installed in this wedding theme have ruined the shot!

Editor can fix this skin tone which gives a plastic surgery effect sometime. They end up making further adjustments during post-processing. But you wanted to look real, right? If any of the prime color (Red, Green, Blue) is taken away in post processing then It is a flat photo having no emotions in it. RGB color correction is difficult to fix even if your photographer shoots on RAW format. No matter, any kind of expensive full frame camera body he/she owns.

Lighting Aspect In Photography:

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. Fix your wedding theme or color 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 light. 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 background with the help of RGB lights can create a mess. Your family and friends should look gorgeous in your wedding album at first hand !

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.
Photographer can use color filters to cut off the particular color. But how many times the filter is to be mounted or unmounted?
