Not every wedding you cover will want every type of photograph, but it will be a good idea to write down a list of what is required, for your first few weddings, because if you forget, you cannot organise a re run. Also you must remember that it is a sentimental day for many people, and there will be opportunities for unusual photographs, keep a watchful eye out for child guests, at some point possibility of an unusual photograph is going to present itself. Weddings are all fairly standard, but most people like to add a reminder of poignancy or humour. It will be a good idea to get yourself invited to wedding rehearsal, that way you can meet guests, and be more comfortable with them on their big day.
The film is a large outlay for a wedding, but most people will be prepared to pay up to 50% before day, which will be sufficient to cover your expenses. Do you use digital or film, for big day. Digital photographers can use Photoshop to enhance your wedding photographs with such techniques as hand-tinting, flaw removal, montage, changing images from color to sepia and black and white, and much more.

Seven Tips For Coping With Hot FlashesWritten by Alicia Simpson

4. Keep a supply of ice water nearby - even at night beside your bed.
5. Use lighter blankets or a fan near your bed to deal with hot flashes at night.
6. Limit your intake of red wine, chocolate, and aged cheeses, which contain a chemical that can affect your body's thermostat and trigger a hot flash.
7. Make use of other coping behaviors. Psychological or behavioral coping techniques are getting more attention from scientific community. For example, a small study conducted by a professor of psychiatry, Robert R. Freedman, Ph.D., at Lafayette Clinic and Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit found that regular, practiced breathing reduced hot flashes by 50 percent in study’s 33 participants.
Other self-help behavioral methods include practicing self-acceptance (remind yourself, out loud if necessary, that this is a temporary symptom of menopause and perfectly normal), tracking emotions and situations that precede a flash (thus putting some degree of self-control back into equation), and trying to keep a sense of humor (share funny moments with friends who are also going through transition).
