Wedding Shots

I had the pleasure of attending one of my best friends’ wedding a few weeks ago.
Although they had their own photographer for the day, I did take it upon myself to try and get around some of the other guests for some candid shots of them enjoying the evening.

I will say that I have a new found respect for professionsal wedding/ function photographers as you have to try and deal with so many location and human difficulties when composing a shot in 1/50th of a second.
Such as distracting backgrounds, un-level surfaces/ walls, optical illusions, light sources (or lack thereof), the suitability of your own gear for the task (28mm on a 1.6 crop body is waay to narrow for indoor group shots, and F3.5 is waay to slow for a dimly lit room!!).

Anyway, after a decent amount of processing and culling of a LOT of terrible shots, here’s a few i’m happy to share.

See, distracting background, damn coffee machine!!

Another keen photographer (Sam Shelley) commandeered my camera (although a little smaller than his regular kit, 40D) with the 50mm attached and started work on some of the other guests. I really like the contrasts in this shot. although he had trouble positioning the subject directly below the overhead spotlight
