    Now my basics are shaken yet again...

    Sorry if this is a really silly question catchlights: How did you blur the background, which is stationary, but keep focus on the moving subjects?

    If you are shooting digital, during daytime indoor is ISO 400 or higher, outside is ISO 200 or lower, when in doubt, shoot P mode and RAW.
    Always have extra flash batteries, camera batteries and CF cards with you. (in your pockets or whatever)


    Hope this help.
    I was shooting using a digital camera. And I got the camera like few hours before the wedding!!!! My friend loaned me a 10D to me and I used it for both days.

    Somehow I realised I couldn't really use 1/30 as the camera is very heavy. I need to get use to heavy cameras. Now thinking of buying either a 350D or 20D. I think the cost of the lenses will kill me.

    No, the cost of the lens willnot kill you....but the L-virus will slowly do so....haha....maybe you can get a 20D.....but mirror very noisy....the whole wedding hall also can hear you...

    Wah! Very nice leh. I can never take this kinda good pictures. Mine was so normal and I was using 1/80 for the dinner. But I do not understand why my flash doesn't recycle fast enough. Flash did not work sometimes. And my friend is very sensitive to flash. So, many of her pictures are with her eyes closed. Luckily I was kaisu enough to take more than enough.

    a pre welcome to the DSLR world. No matter wat sys u r using, u definitely wouldn't regret. The arsernal of lens can take time to build up... Just get the basic gear 1st. If you feel that 10D is heavy, then u shld get 350D with the grip. It is female-user friendly Of course, get yrself a flashgun too.

    Regarding flash, I own a Metz 54 MZ 3. Will it be compatible with other Canons?

    That's right.

    shinken,
    _BEE_,
    I deliberately set to slow speed and move the camera while I making this shot.

    Virgo,
    Nothing so special, just too bore, wanted to do something differently.

    Flash not recycles fast enough:
    Check aperture and working distant, aperture too small and distant too far, flash is fired at full power so takes time for recycle.
    Check batteries, maybe all or one batteries is weak.

    Flash not fire:
    Check flash ready light.
    Check flash and hotshoe contacts, may need to clean.




    A scary picture from the same dinner event. Available light with handheld.
