Man, my flash skills need some work.
Having said that, I think I got some decent shots of my friends’ wedding.
I shot a combination of strobe (flash-illuminated) and natural light shots. There are a lot of ways I could have gone about the shoot, many of which I probably don’t even know yet. I used a relatively slow lens that didn’t let in a lot of light. I’ve got faster lenses that bring in more light, but they have fixed focal lengths that would have forced me to stand much farther away from the action.
Until I spend a lot of money on a new camera or on new lenses, I think learning how to use my flash properly is the best way to improve the quality of my shots.
Technical critique aside, the wedding was really cool. It was a very small affair, very intimate, and the bride and groom were both radiating happy. I feel honored that they asked me to be a part of it.
Oh yeah – all told, there were four men in kilts at the wedding. It was very fashion-forward.
