As current regular wedding photographer the only thing I can’t tolerate is when guests place themselves in front of my camera or when they try to stand behind me and capture poses I have spent years perfecting. Most people will stop doing it after I give them a “look”. Cell phones are part of virtually every processional these days so its impossible to police it. Candid pictures throughout the wedding are no big deal. It’s only formals I care to keep as my own unique creations. If you want to take a few images of your own, grab the bride and groom at a slow time during the reception and just stay far away from the pro the rest of the time.

Any 'expert' that tells you there is such a thing as a 'good and proper' histogram clearly is not ....

I'd suggest you consider a few interrelated issues:

1) Are you shooting in RAW?
2) If you shoot JPEG, do you plan / want to edit further or do you want straight-out-of-camera (SOOC) JPEGs?
3) What is the noise profile of your camera model?

To me, the histogram has become less relevant than the highlight warning (aka blinkies). When I review test images / in-progress images, I look first at where the highlight warnings occur. If I have warnings, I know, without even looking at the histogram, the histogram will be pushed to the right edge. With extensive experience over tens of thousands of images, I know from a glace at the location of blinkies whether I can recover this highlights in post from my RAW files. If have concern, such as a close-up portrait, I'll adjust the exposure as needed to remove the highlight warnings, pulling the histogram back to the left.

Why are my three questions relevant?

As a Canon EOS RAW shooter, I want that histogram as far to the right as possible for every ISO value and I adjust the exposure in post, whether RAW or JPEG. This Expose to the Right (ETTR) approach reflects the noise profile of every EOS body I've used. For my Sony camera that has a different noise profile, I'm less 'over the edge' of the right side of the histogram, but still seeking exposures that cause some highlight warnings.

You / no one can say what a 'perfect' histogram would look like for every camera and every exposure situation. Rather, develop your own hands-on knowledge with your camera, and if applicable, your processing software.

You are absolutely right about observing the blinkies, particularly when photographing rapidly moving, changing or backlit scenes. Histograms are useful and informative but not worthy of my attention on a busy shoot. As you noted, the Histogram doesn’t tell you where the overexposure lyes within the image. Only the blinkies will do that. My advise to budding photographers is to understand them and then stop worrying about them. Learn to observe the image on-screen, make adjustments and continue shooting.

I’d be happy to tie my shoes without reaching for the Ibuprofen!

I’m using Adorama Streaklight 360 (Godex) lights along with an on camera flash bouncing off the ceilings and walls. Radio controlled units are essential when lighting separate rooms within view of the main room you are focused on. I suggest you look up Rich Baum on YouTube. He has a great method for entry level and advanced photographers.

that I didn't get so involved that I forgot or didn't have time ....

So...I was thinking of doing Hats for fun with this challenge! See what you can -dig up or create! Hats

are fun to wear for added attention, shade on hot days or heat to keep warmer in the winter-protection

also if you are a biker, skier, boxer, etc.

The more unusual, the better! Have fun-I'll be watching!
