How do I get a softer look for wedding shots
Sep 20, 2012

I have a D300 with an SB 800 flash. I mainly use my camera with my 70-200mm with 1.4 teleconverter for soccer, baseball, and swimming. Sometimes I do basketball and volleyball. So I'm used to doing action shots. A friend's daughter is getting married on Saturday and they have asked me to come to the house and get some shots of the girls getting ready before the professional photographer shows up. How do I get softer shots...not really soft but photos that have a more feminine feel that also let the details of the wedding dress come through? Also are there any good sites for a beginner to see exactly what shots I should be trying for?

I have a 105mm Micro lens and a 17-55mm lens, also 50mm.

Nikon D300
