I photographed the wedding of friends the other day. Full Day – starting with the preparations for the wedding and ending with restaurant congratulations. I planted 12 batteries for the flash, 2 batteries and scored 8 GB flash drive. The result is … well, 40-50% percent I squeezed out of what could be – the conditions were tough, there was very little time.
In this post, in fact, want to share my first experience, I hope that many beginning wedding photographers in handy as a reference on what to do is, but it is not.
It all started with the fact that only 25 of December, I learned from a young couple, 9 January I still trusted to shoot a wedding. Preparation time to spare, thank God, at least got to buy a spare battery for the camera – otherwise, would be sufficient only for half of the wedding.
are ready to seriously – after all the time responsible, but experience shooting weddings, I actually do not.
First of all, I read a series of forums on how to remove the frost. The problem of condensation when taking the “heat-cold-warm” has raised me (read the comments must continue to http://focused.ru/3801 !), but if a consensus with Sergei, we did not come. According to the results taken can say the following:
Sally for 10-15 minutes at degrees-frost does not lead to subsequent fogging the camera when you move into heat. The camera does not have time enough to cool, then to condensation. So I had no problems in the room otschelkal bride, then left for 15 minutes to meet the groom at redemption, and then moved into the warm entrance.
A long finding in the cold (30-40 minutes) before moving into heat (in this case a car), I pre-wrapped the camera in a normal plastic bag and stowed in fotoryukzak, who always carried with him, that is, He also cooled as the camera. This strategy allowed for driving on a wedding are not subjected to strong differences of the camera and as a result – no sweat. But the outbreak once I got out of the bag being in the car – just plastic covered with condensation.
In general, the outfit had no problems. Looking ahead, I say that without an external flash, perhaps, could not be removed and half of the frame – the dark doorways, no less dark apartments, a strong contrast between light sky, white snow and everything else.
