    better take some time to practise what the masters have taught you, especially catchlights' tips, at least have some little experience before the big day, it's not easy to work with a 'wedding crowd' around

    ok lah, you've taken the job liao, no chance to balek, just be sure to practise, this one i am serious, show your confidence, but must pre-empt possible problems also. lighting control very important, if all else fail just switch to P mode, having more normal pictures of important moments is better than perfecting the techinical parts.

    Think ahead, act fast.

    Try to get it right at site, bang a few test shots before hand to check. don't shoot under or over 2 stops and think how to save it in photoshop.

    Don't be to ambitious, get the basic shots first, try other angles when is free and available.

    that one i cannot comment cos my experience very shallow, from what i know in event coverage, if you just don't seem to get things to appear right after a couple of shots always put to P and let the camera handle the rest, this is to prevent your nervousness from ruining the rest of the coverage. when there's a break time then slowly figure out what went wrong.

    don't know how to answer you, every event scene calls for different requirement, there's no ok or not ok, this type of things have to learn through experience ... practise, practise, having some practise will definitely help

    f8, be there.

    anyway, depend on what gear you use, basically is ISO 400 for indoor, 100 or 200 for outdoor, flash comensation is depand how the images turn out, f5.6~8 for most general shots, shoot in jpg is fine, shoot in RAW also can, if you have the enough resources to handle the raw files.

    first apply the rules, then learn how to break them.

    the rules have been listed here, so after u've done a few, let's see how u can break them.

    hehe .... you worry too much le, since you are using the 20D, you just insert a 1G memory card, keep snapping ... shoot at least 30 photo for each couple/relatives/elder ... sure have a few can show people one wor ....
