If you don't get it right in camera, it can be a nightmare to fix in post, and you need some decent knowledge of Lightroom to know how to apply custom WB, rads and grads. Remember post processing is a lot more fun and you'll spend less time when you embellish rather than need to correct.

Haha, yes, I've done that on a poor image, but it's also not that simple, you still need to play with the sliders.

Lightroom is the defacto software for editing wedding photography. Yes, shoot in RAW, you then have more latitude to fix and/or be creative. The best thing to do is not go overboard with anything and keep your images looking consistent. Nobody wants their session to look like it was shot by 5 completely different photographers. While you can apply one preset to all your photos, it does not negate the need to correct exposure, fix white balance, clone out objects etc.Tbik78 wrote: ↑Aug 9th, 2017 11:59 amWhat software you use for photo editing? I used to do editing with Picasa on my computer. It was free, I used to edit my siblings wedding photos and university photographs.
Now, in course I am taking they have briefly explained photoshop and lightroom.
What I understood, you can edit multiple photos together in lightroom (copy and paste ediitings). Have not looked at their prices to compare yet, but what you guys prefer?
Also, do you take photos in RAW, NEF or JPEG. I have learnt that you can do more editing in terms of color in RAW files, correct? These files are super heavy though. You might need 64GB memory cards for a small event?

I've read that book, it's bit vague and he talks about using his Contax film camera.

From time to time there are local workshops for portraiture/weddings.

OP, if you are asking these types of question, I think you need to rethink your plan (though it can still be an eventual goal). An experienced photographer would know the benefits of RAW vs JPG and something you need to understand years ahead of becoming a wedding photographer.

I was thinking more of AD360AncasterRFD wrote: ↑Aug 7th, 2017 10:36 amYes, an AD600 would probably do the trick, I wonder if they're reliable? I'd have to do more pro work to make the Profoto worth it.
I'm using a Rovelight right now on a stand and it's still clunky (forgot to add that to my list which sits in the car too whenever I need it)
