I don't shoot weddings
Posted By: ftpaddict, 06-04-2008, 02:27 AM

But nobody can stop me from trying!


"Take that!" - K100D, Soligor 70-200, ISO 400

I "stole" this shot when the bride wasn't paying attention. Her photographer was a guy with a Sony Alpha A100 and a kit lens.

Tell me what you think of it.

I think that is a wonderful candid - the veil was a little over the face but the brides face shows a lot of joy - well shot.

I agree with Bill, a very nice candid shot. Shadows are difficult to shoot in and you were able to capture the joy on her face in this playful shot.

You caught the moment, Dan. Well, she seemed so relaxed and natural there. I preferred photojournalistic wedding photography.

Thank you. I couldn't do much about the veil, as I wasn't even "there". I grabbed what I could.

Thank you kindly. 200mm is a good focal length for portraits, it seems.

What do you mean by photojournalistic wedding photography, James?

Dan, photojournalistic photography is just candid shots throughout the day. So you captured everyone in an unknowingly way. So no saying cheese or smile, snap all the natural moment which is what you are doing

All credit goes to her for that.

Sometimes I wonder if the groom can be the photographer to his own wedding.
