  1. Hi Binita, that was awsome presentation. Learnt a lot fromit. I have one doubt… at the light techniques part, you said you will set up 2 off light flashes on either side of the mandap, my doubt is do you use any diffusers on the off camera flashes or you just flash the lights directly. May be directly as the power is 1/64 i assume.

  2. This is what a wedding for an couple of Indian descent will typically look like in the United States. I know there are a lot of critiques in here on it being generalized to all weddings around the world but this is a great video introduction for beginners and even helpful for professionals looking to learn another photographers approach. Nobody is perfectly inclusive of all possible social contexts, that's very hard. Personally, I respect her willing to share her knowledge and help others learn.

    She certainly helped me 🙂

  3. I guess she's talking about Indian people wedding in western style.  Because what she's talking about is not Indian wedding, by the way there is no such a thing called Indian wedding anyway. If you are Indian you understand what I am talking about.
