PHOTOGRAPHY 1080i High Definition Movies.
Digital cameras allow for an immediate preview of images taken allowing you to approve your photographs on the day all dressed up with loved ones around you in Honiton.
Red Cameras and other digital stills cameras can record a high definition movie clip onto the hard drive card and with computer and software packages photographers can offer to render oil and water colour prints monochrome and sepia prints, feathering and other such effects to your wedding images.
Video clips with audio can capture the atmosphere but may be better with a light background music added in post production once you have cleared the music copyright and do check that your wedding and reception venues allow recordings to be made and that you may have to place several microphones around the venue to get good quality audio.
