    Default SMU Wedding

    Hi,

    Did anyone manage to catch the Wedding at SMU?

    I saw the wedding on CNA yesterday.

    I found the photographer was very intrusive.

    He put his camera and powered his flash in front of the couples faces.

    not very good technique right?

    I saw it on TV. But didn't see the photos yet, so cannot comment much..... Maybe the photos very nice!

    Also, it is just that short period that he is very near the couple, maybe he is only taking a few close up of that very moment, the rest of the other moments not so close up?

    (assuming he doesn't have time to change to longer lens...)

    I thought since it was in the day time there was no need to use the flash.

    He positioned his camera just inches from their faces!

    it is not about the pictures, just to make couple feel like they are the super star.

    well... i normally use flash even in bright daylight... depends on the type of mood i wanna portray...

    not that i am the photographer, just sharing some thoughts... flash is not just for night or dark area.

    u reminded me of some event organiser asking Csers to be posers flashing their flashguns at some events...

    You may choose not to take any pictures.
    But whatever you take would be and will be used on our sole discretion.

    agree. how many times you see a photographer taking photos at the those big events. people willingly pose and take photos, but how many will ask for the photos at the end?

    it is all about the benediction of the flash.

    I saw part of it on CNA and what caught me was the press careman from CNA was very close from the couple. This happens all the time, news cameraman always use wide angle to get infront of everybody else as they don't want to get their view blocked, same with some press photographers. I don't think the photographer have much of a choice but to "fight for angle" with the press people, so he have to get close as well, unless he want to miss the shot of get the press cameraman in his shot.

    Just my 2 cts
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
