    Agree. Just be careful. This could be the most important event in your friend's life.

    yes exactly, i understand too. i also reassured myself by getting an experienced guy for backup. for this matter, i just wanted to learn more from the forum, so i could make better pictures for my friend.

    as mentioned already... the key events of the signing and the kiss happen very quickly... and they don't wait for camera man one!!! also not that much space in front...

    so timing and positioning is very important (forget the tripod)... you and your backup would be very conspicuous moving around (worst if got videographer too)... try to get good idea of the sequence of events so make sure you don't miss anything.

    i also think better to go with the paparazzi flash than the soft shots... but don't over do it with your backup, else the bride and groom would be seeing stars!!! =)

    enjoy the shoot!!!

    I would not advise using direct flash. Background will be dark and there might be shadows. Bounce your flash. If you're not sure, just point it up between 45 deg. to 90 deg. If the zoom on your flash is set manually ( in M or A mode ), make sure it is set to wide angle. Enjoy your shoot. With a more exp. guy around, you should be able to get some good pictures.

    1) Personally I like B/W photos. But not everybody can take good B/W photos. Good angles and tastely done, very critical. I guess digital still cannot produce the nice texture of true-worth B&W films especially the high-contract films such as T-max 100. TCM400, well, can forget about that film.

    3) No tripod lah, unless you also want to be inside the photos, and you set your cam to timer mode. Else, forget about it lah, just weight you down.

    4) Yes, Yes, cold lam the photos, present it in a nice albums, write your own captions! Wow.. Go for it, if the couple is one of your best friends!

    GOOD LUCK!!

    being a photographer myself, i know the difficulty of getting the kiss pic, so during my own wedding, i purposely kiss slightly longer than people usu. do for my photographer. but dunno if she realised or not.

    It's not hard, it's called anticipation. Even if you can't anticipate, D2H/1DMK II also won't help with the 8fps.

    How about 2 flash, 1 bounce the other direct. Of cause, adjust ratio hor.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    I saw a pro guy using 2 flashes, one small camera mounted one with tissue paper around it for direct flash and another METZ hammerhead pointed 45 deg.

    not really anticipation here le.....its being alert and experience.....never missed a kiss shot before le......most important is to know the flow of events.....
