so my friend selly asked me to come by to take some detailed shots of some stuff before her wedding. i think managed to capture a few good shots that will hopefully compliment her wedding album. here are some shots i took in the morning before the wedding.
OK!! So here are my first attempts at taking pictures at a wedding. Although my friend Linda had hired a photographer, she agreed to let me take pictures at her wedding for practice in exchange for photos. I’ve never actually shot a wedding so I had no idea what I was doing. This was totally different from what I was used to. Usually, I’m on a race track taking pictures of race cars…but the thing with race cars, I know pretty much exactly where the cars are going to be. As for shooting a wedding, with people moving at will, I had to make sure that I was at the right spot to capture a moment that may be gone within seconds.
The wedding took place in the city of La Canada Flintridge outside of the La Canada Country Club. Lighting was nice and soft since the sun was on its way down, but it was a little gray out because of the clouds. The weather was a bit chilly, but all in all, it was a nice wedding and there was plenty of light out and space to take pictures. In the beginning, I was trying to figure out which setting I wanted to use (manual, shutter priority, aperture priority, etc.) so I tried a little bit of everything. I don’t think I’ve found the “correct” setting yet, but I have a better understanding of what I should be using.
So here’s goes nothing…hopefully Linda and her new hubby will like these photos.
