May 2014 – a wedding

DSC_1289-2
Well, it didn’t kill me. Although at several points I was certain I was going to die. Trying to be inconspicuous and still get up close and personal with a wedding ceremony is a task best saved for a solid 180mm lense. I brought a 50mm…
Lesson learned.
Fortunately for me I wasn’t “THE” photographer.
I actually had a lot of fun once I got into it. I found myself inspired even.

I know that the idea of my blog was to share the whole brutal process of selecting a frame and talking about post processing, but life has been far to demanding lately for that. My apologies.

I will leave you with this.
When you take a good photograph post processing becomes easy. I cropped I converted to B and W and I added a bit of vignette.
Done.

I am happy with it.

I am also happy not to shoot a wedding again…

May 2014 – The wedding shoot

image

Trust me when I say this.  I am extremely hesitant to do any portrait photography, and I don’t think I have the experience or the proper lighting gear to shoot a good wedding.
That being said my mom’s cousin asked me to shoot her wedding in addition to the photographer they highered.  I said yes to that since I won’t be the professional photog. 
This takes all the pressure off and allows me to gain some experience shooting a wedding.  Should be fun and gives me an opportunity to complete my 2014 photo project may photo. 

I’ll set it up for you later but for now I have to get back to the wedding I’m currently at.  The above photo was taken today and since I was in the wedding party I had to leave my fancy camera at home.   It was shot and edited on my samsung smartphone.
