The last time I picked my camera up must have been at Christmas and it showed as I was a little rusty to begin with, but as the day unfolded I became familiar with my old friend.
Last weekend just gone I shot my fourth wedding for a friend. I was a some what joint first shooter with a photographer I had never met before, Ben Gatley. It was a great chance to use all of my new gear, including my bag and my 24-70mm f/2.8 Nikkor. Both tools were well worth the money and I’m glad I purchased them.
While shooting this wedding I started to realise just how much people rush in life. It seemed that no sooner had the pastor said “I now pronounce you…” that the couple had finished the kiss and then within what felt like seconds the rest of the service flashed by. People may say that they rush so that they can get things out of the way, but why can’t we slow down our lives a lot more for special days like weddings, birthdays and anniversaries? It’s strange to believe that for all the money you hand out that, the day actually seems as rushed and urgent as the rest.
Anyway towards the end of March I will be photographing at another wedding for a friend except this time I will be the main photographer. An obstacle I have only faced twice within the four weddings I have photographed for. I was originally going to invest in a new computer, preferably a mac but after a problematic battery grip at the weekend a new camera body may come sooner than once thought. Stay posted for an update within the weddings category and a blog post with photographs from my day photographing headshots at UCB.
Thank you for reading.
