I'm not too sure if I posted in the correct forum though.
I volunteered to cover my friend's wedding ROM (not customary) this month for free, mainly because I was just curious in the wedding process and also wanted to practice shooting. Reminded her that quality is not my forte though. I'll be shooting alongside her relatives and her best pals.
I'll be using a Fuji 602z with Metz32-1 and Omnibounce.
I wish to take this chance to document this event like a photojournal instead of taking family-type snapshots.. etc from the bride's place to ROM to the documents and post reception if any. I've never seen a ROM being conducted nor actually functioned behind the scenes in a wedding before so I'd really like to get some guidance from you guys on how to go about doing it.
One of my major faults is that I'm too trigger happy, treating the DC like a static Videocam. I think I really need to think about the shots that I want to capture, compose in my mind before taking the (good) shot.
So.. 2 qns.
What would I be expecting in the wedding ROM? I would be starting at her place though, then moving on to ROM at FC.
What kind of settings should I employ for the various stages of the ceremony and how appropriately should I use them? For eg.. when should I use Omnibounce? Should I use flash when they are exchanging rings?
Actually I'm also quite interested to hear from eadwine as he covered a wedding recently.
I remembered several threads a while back sharing tips.. Some were saying during a certain ceremony make sure that you start shooting with enough batteries.. the poster had to change his batteries and missed that impt moment.
