David Ziser’s Live Wedding Shoot DVD
Wedding season is  upon us and if you’re a wedding photographer or if you’re aspiring to be one, this DVD is a must-watch for you. Nationally-recognized wedding photographer David Ziser takes you through a wedding shoot from start to finish â” and when he says start to finish he means it. From getting ready with the bride in the morning to taking the required outdoor shots no matter the light quality and discreetly using a flash to capture the ceremony to covering the reception so nothing is missed, David shares his entire workflow method and experiences from more than 25 years in the business. Love is in the air and so are cool wedding photography DVDs, so leave a comment to win a copy of Live Wedding Shoot: From Start to Finish and we’ll randomly draw 3 winners from the comments.
