NIKON D750 “MOMENT” SETTINGS

I just returned from teaching at the3-day Fearless Class workshop in Texas with Huy Nguyen and Kirsten Lewis Bethmann. It was 3 days all about moments. During that time I promised the Nikon shooters in attendance that I would explain my settings for optimizing efficiency on my D750 to make my life easier when trying to capture fleeting moments at weddings or family sessions. Since I ran out of time to do that I decided to make a video and finally update this site. 🙂 Sit back and watch how I set up my cameras as well as a little explanation of the one feature of my Nikon’s that will make it extremely difficult to ever switch camera systems. It is a game changer that no other camera systems have as far as I know.     For those what want to watch Dave Cheung’s video on how to set up all of this up in the menus go... Read More

Tyler is exited to be returning to London, England in March to speak at the Elevate Conference and to host a one day Wirkshop on applying  the documentary mindset to wedding photography. Join Tyler for this one day Wirkshop that will challenge the way you think about wedding photography and your own work. This one day Wirkshop, taught by Tyler Wirken, will be a full day rooted around the art of the moment. Instruction will be classroom based with a presentation by Tyler on his photojournalism background and how and why he integrates that into his weddings. Topics will focus on the idea of taking a hands off approach to documenting weddings and why it is important and will range from- -how to simplify your use of camera gear and master the art of capturing fleeting moments -Using light, moment, composition to build the perfect image -how to mentally handle all parts of a wedding day and find the best image possible in any given situation -Why getting the right clients is paramount to success -how to plan the wedding day with your clients to provide the proper environment that breeds moments. Learn to take control of the wedding schedule not the other way around. Please note this workshop will consist of a day full of classroom type lecture and will not be involving any live shooting or personal critique of students. It is a day to learn a different approach to wedding photography and how to achieve it.
