Yesterday I was at my friend's wedding. The official photographer was a youngish girl. Hmm...I thought...that's a good change. She was deck out in a Nikon D90 with battery grip and a standard 18-105 VR kit lens. Interesting again...or so I thought. I was curious...no helper? No second photographer? Hmm...that's also new or am I behind time after all I'm 89.
Along the way...she missed a lot of opportunity shots when the couple strolled in. (Where was she?) When the couple popped the champagne, she was out for "fresh air". When the traditional "Yum Seng" was in progress, she took only a few shots from the middle of the hall. (Huh??? Need to go so far?)
Again when the traditional photo op at every table was done so slowly that most of the guest said their byes before the process completed as the couple was rushed to the door to thank the leaving guests.
Most of us at the table were left wondering whether it was a new concept or a very inept wedding photographer?
What do you think?
