Ever wondered what you look like when you're taking pictures?
« on: January 19, 2010, 09:38:53 AM »
Now I don't have to wonder any more.

A guest just posted a video of first dance from Saturday.  It includes some rather alarming footage of me "in action".  Take a look and see if you can figure out

1. Exactly how may pictures I took in 4m 24s
2. What the person in the black military jacket is doing
3. What all the hand waving is about

I'm just grateful they didn't post the bit with me lying on the floor....

What i found most interesting is how at the end they appeared to come over to you to look at the pictures you had taken.
Is that the norm nowadays - having to give a quick slide show off the camera of what you've taken thus far?

It certainly looks like they had a great time and i'm glad the snow cleared for all and they got a variety of video and pictures to remember it all by.

No.  At least not for me.

I'll only usually show a client the camera if
1. It's a cool capture that I want to prove I didn't Photoshop :) like fireworks etc
2. They need a bit of reinforcement.  If I'm taking pics of the groom I'll often show them to the bride so she can go "wow, you look great!!!" to him.

Can't remember what we talked about but they didn't see the pics then.  They were probably asking if I'd had enough from the buffet :D

You beat me to it :D Working on voice and handsignals! I suppose if you can afford a Hasselblad you can afford one of those. ;)

It's looking like 2010 could be an interesting year for you Jonathan.
You're gonna need another holiday at this rate just to recuperate!
