Wedding Photography: LSK

First experience on wedding photography, i felt there is too short of time with so much of activities packed up in a day. It makes photographer need to take immediate action and a level of photography knowledge to cope with different environments.

During the session, i’m filled in as an additional photographer where there are already three official photographer and a videographer responsible through out the event. Since i doesn’t need to worry much about each activities, so i decided to focus only on the bride.

An external flash Metz Mecablitz 50 AF-1 and three lenses was brought to the event, Sigma 10-20mm f/4.0-5.6, Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 and the mostly used Tamron AF 17-50mm f/2.8. The Tamron AF 17-50mm f/2.8 perform fairly good with fast, accurate focus and produce relatively sharp images.

There are few lessons learned from the day,

  • external flash is a must, it lighten up subject’s face and helps on low light environment
  • make use of available lights around, turn them on to give extra punch for image
  • easily missed out great photography moment while changing lens or shooting on other side
  • a single camera will not be enough and risky if the camera is dead (ex: hit shutter’s life, unable to power-on or sudden battery drain).

        International version of the phone will most probably known as HTC Deluxe DLX. Like the sleek design.

        Might consider this phone to replace my current Desire S.

    Its a steep learning curve, but you seem to be making a good start. The photo in the car park needed a lower depth of field to lose the cars, but not so easy if you have very strong sunlight, as you had here, so possibly a close up of the bride’s face would have worked better in this instance. The other photos inside probably could do with a small colour correction to make them a slightly cooler colour, but all in al great for a first attempt at being bombarded by activities crammed into one short day! xx

      Wow… so honored that Elaine gave me a professional view of points. Learned two things from Elaine’s advice, i) compose image on main focus without including undesired objects, ii) tune the colour towards a little blue as image i shot are more warm yellowish. Will keep it in mind! 😀
