At work
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:39:39 AM »
I recently photographed a Wedding in a church with a very nice upper gallery and balcony and at the rehearsal I thought it would be a good idea to have a second shooter up there to cover proceeding from above so to speak.
Anyway jimthetrain was busy working on the railway ( Which reminds me I should of asked Just Dave who lives locally ) so I decided to set up my second camera on remote. I am quite pleased with the result and so is the Bride so everyone's happy even though I can be seen taking the shot and on the right you can see my wife Jenny trying not to be seen. ( Which reminds me of a Monty Python sketch )
By the way there were more people at the Wedding than the picture suggests they were just out of shot.

That's a really super shot. I'm sure the happy couple will love it.

Nice work. I`ve a similar issue next month when the bride would like a shot from the balcony but would not pay for a 2nd shooter to get that and other shots. I`m hoping the vicar is as generous / kind as I hear and might agree to let us stage a shot after the wedding when I can get up there as she wants a close up of them and the longer lens will be on my camera. It`s either that or she does without or thinks again re: 2nd shooter as I am already doing it far too cheaply !

Cracking shot Dave, but wonder how you judged the moment to fire the shutter, or did you take more than one shot?  ;)

Not to cheaply I hope Jinky. Could you not do a similar shot to mine as a compromise.   Oldboy I took five shots this one being the third as it turns out but there was a bit of planning before hand. At the rehearsal I noted where the Vicar would be standing and on the day we arrived early at the church to set up the camera and my wife stood in the Vicars position for me to get a fix for the camera. When I had photographed the Brides entrance at ground level I quickly moved around the edge to the alter and then took a guess that the shots should be OK as she approached the last rows of seats.

The usual friend of a close friend`s daughter in hard times that took my pity and made me offer a more generous discount - as much for the fact it was an all day booking with some nice features that would help my portfolio / development fo the wedding side which I am finding slow. I might try something similar at the rehearsal and see if it works - if I can remember how the remote on my back up works after all this time  ;)

I was just about to give you a hard time for devoting effort to fixing her lack of budget ;)  There's a simple and obvious solution - it just costs them money....

Realistically there's plenty of time in an Anglican ceremony to nip up to a balcony.  Just check that they are doing all the verses to Jerusalem or All Things Bright and Beautiful and you're sorted.  Catholic ceremony you have a-g-e-s....

BTW remote cameras rock.  You can use it cover the shutter noise.  Place your camera very obviously on the floor and then discreetly hit the remote and glare at whoever must have made the noise :D
