editor’s note

Welcome to our wedding issue, which I believe includes exceptional images from some of the hardest-working photographers in the business. In fact, I think you’ll be as impressed with what they have to say about their motivation, business practices, marketing skills and emergency disaster plans as with the quality of the photographs you see in each article. And whether you’re a seasoned wedding shooter or are just starting out, I think you’ll find great advice from the pros in these pages. For example, take the image you see here, photographed by veteran wedding photographer Javon Longieliere. He’s profiled by Jill Waterman for her story on destination weddings (beginning on page 26). In the image, you’ll notice a lovely bride being escorted by her father while a string quartet plays in front of…

Panasonic Launches Full-Frame Mirrorless Lumix S1, S1R Cameras And Three Lenses For New System In late September 2018, at this past year’s Photokina photography trade show in Germany, Panasonic whetted the appetites of photographers by announcing the camera maker would be developing two new digital full-frame mirrorless cameras as well as 10 compatible lenses based on the Leica L mount (by the year 2020). This year, the camera manufacturer made the announcement official by providing ample details and technical specifications on the two new digital cameras—the 24.2-megapixel Lumix S1 and the 47.3-megapixel Lumix S1R—as well as details and technical specs on three compatible S-series lenses: The Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4, Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. and Lumix S 24-105mm f/4 MACRO O.I.S. One area that may distinguish these Panasonics from the…

a first look at 3 small mirrorless cameras: sony a6400, fujifilm x-t30 and canon eos rp

If 2018 was a banner year for new mirrorless cameras, the beginning of 2019 has kept the momentum going with the introduction of three new smaller-sized cameras: the Sony a6400, Fujifilm X-T30 and Canon EOS RP. Now, I realize “smaller” is a somewhat relative term. For example, the EOS RP is larger and heavier in comparison to the X-T30 and a6400, but only by degrees, and in part, that’s because the EOS RP is a full-frame camera. The Fujifilm and Sony have smaller APS-C-sized image sensors. But being a full-frame camera isn’t always the issue. Take the new Olympus OM-D E-M1X. It uses a Micro Four Thirds image sensor—smaller still than the image sensors found in the a6400 and X-T30—and yet the Olympus is not just significantly bigger than the Sony and…

a photojournalistic approach to wedding photography

Philadelphia area-based Cliff Mautner is well into his fourth decade as a professional photographer. During that time, he’s not only effectively transitioned from film to digital, but he’s also changed focus from working as a photojournalist to a wedding photographer. Plus, he’s taken on a variety of corporate and commercial work. But just how did this photographer, who’s a Nikon Ambassador and two-time WPPI Grand Award Winner for Photojournalism, successfully make the leap into the highly competitive and ever-evolving arena of wedding photography? Mautner credits his broad background and finely tuned skill set. But perhaps most of all, he admits that he needed to adjust his approach to photography. Digital Photo Pro: What are the main differences between a photojournalistic approach to wedding photography and a traditional approach to the big day? Cliff…
