Wedding Photographer

This is why I hate weddings.

I'm wondering about that flash photography technique. He's got a diffuser and he's bouncing off a ceiling that has to be at least 15 feet up. That's a 30-foot round trip and some loss from the diffuser. That requires either film or other ISO equivalent in the high sensitivity category. He's got a couple cameras with moon lenses on them. I can't think of any good reason why he couldn't have stayed back near the fountain and shot from there, while tilting the strobe head.

Not only would this have saved him from dunking ten grand worth of equipment, it would probably also result in less reject exposures with blur and skewed horizon.

But what do I know? I'm no wedding photographer.

I'd like weddings more if I saw that occasionally!

And he totally blocked the video of the walk back down the aisle.

At our wedding, I forbid the photographer to come down the aisle. All ceremony photos were taken from the back of the room.

I LOL'd. Good thing my chair has arms, or it would have been ROFLMAO!
I'm still chuckling...


Also, if you have one person in charge of all official photogs, coordination should stop this sort of bad business.

Twice I've been at weddings where the pictures I took with an old Canon 35mm were sent around the country for family and friends to make copies. Once the photographer found that the shutter hadn't worked properly. The second time they'd hired someone who had no clue about wedding photography. [Alas, at our wedding 27 years ago, the photographer took several roles of people meeting us at the church door - and all we have is their backs!]

So, did they actually PAY this guy?

I think the subject of this video hates weddings now a lot more than any of the witnesses, or even the photographer who recorded the "baptism".

If you have a lens that can zoom across a football stadium, why couldn't you take those shots from further back and stay out of the way (and out of the fountain)? I'm no pro, but he could have seriously lost all the photos he took that day. And depending on the contract they may actually have been able to sue him for failing to deliver those photos. Hope they all turned out though.

More horrible than I can say. I was a photojournalist for many years and always avoided wedding photography. Way too much stress if, for instance, you fall into the fountain.
