A very important niche for event photography is the Wedding. A career as a wedding photographer is not easy. They add value by not only capturing images of the people attending, but significant moments during the wedding. A creative eye with visual imagination is the basic trait required in a wedding photographer. However, getting a decent technical background helps complement the creative side. There are some diploma and certificate courses that you can pursue to add technical specialisation
A few short years ago, it seemed nearly anyone with a camera could parlay their skills into a career. This is no longer true. The technical aspect of photography has exploded with the digital photography boom. Not only do you need to learn all the artistic angles of setting up and shooting a photograph, you also need to learn how to produce that photography in its best possible light on a computer. With digital cameras, anyone can shoot a photo but not everyone can shoot a good photo, and not everyone knows how to turn what they ve shot into a professional quality picture. There is so much to know about digital enhancement that it would take years to learn on your own. Doesn t it make more sense to attend a concentrated program, taught by professionals so that you can learn all you need to know in a relatively short amount of time? Fortunately, there are many reputable art schools teaching photography today. During your course of study, you will not only learn all of the technical aspects of professional photography, you will also study art history, the history of photography, color theory, and composition. Most art schools and photography schools also include courses in business practice, in order to get you up and running in your new career as soon as possible. You will also receive assistance in creating your own portfolio to show to prospective customers. Most art schools also aid their graduates in job placement and career counseling. After all, it is to their benefit to help their graduates find jobs, as that is the point of the programs. You can see that the best way to pursue a career in professional photography is to enroll in a photography school. Start your research into photography schools today, and before you know it you ll be enjoying a new career.

In India, wedding is a special event not only for the bride and the groom, but also for the other people who are related to them. Thus, it becomes inevitable to get these moments captured so that one can remember all the fun filled as well as emotional instances that took place in the wedding. Wedding photography provides one with the opportunity to cherish the wedding time later. In the Indian context photography and videography during the entire wedding event is a must. Wedding albums, videos CDs, tapes are specially prepared to relive those moments of pleasure and pain. With the country s rich and outstanding wedding celebrations, every Indian wedding photography service will certainly get the best shots they can get during the rite. in India there are a lot of schools offering photography training. enroll and enjoy a whole new way of expressing art through lenses

Hi Niran I hope from the earlier posts you have got a clear understanding of the concept of wedding photography in India Now let me come to the next point.. wedding photography as a career right ? well if you want to be a part of this extremely creative profession, all you need is a keen eye for aesthetic detail and for what is photo-worthy a thorough knowledge of cameras and the technicalities involved in taking pictures, of light, distance and perspective a sensitive and introspective nature and, most importantly, the guts to take up as a profession, what most of the time remains a hobby. It s a profession as well as an art form. For wedding photography as a career, one must have that extra quality, an interest in visuals, an attentiveness to colour, shape and shadow, an interest in light, in observing how colours look on certain days Establishing oneself as a professional photographer is no cakewalk, which is why, perhaps unfortunately, many talented photographers remain amateurs. Now your third question how to pursue this career Most BFA or Applied Art Courses impart specialised training in photography. Design Courses at National Institute of Design have photography as a subject. Indian Institute of Mass Communication, New Delhi and Mass Communication Research Centre, Jamia Millia Islamia offer basic courses in Photography. After Class XII, one can join as an apprentice with a photography unit. Graduation could be pursued through correspondence.
