This is Washington afterall! I am comforted by the fact that after meeting the wedding party last night for rehearsal- that I'm pretty certain they can make anything funny- what a crew! Everything is a one liner or a loving jab at an obviously long history amongst friends.
I tried something new last night while lurking durring the rehearsal last night. It looks really goofy on my camera- but it works! I ran into another photographer last weekend who was haunting the arboretum shooting senior portraits as well. I inquired about the peice of paper (which later turned out to be packing material of sorts) rubber banded to his multi-directional flash. We were both shooting Canon and the same flash...... so he directed me to some other guy's you tube presentation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNCmuExlHvM
and it seems too simple to be true.... but I tried it last night and was amazed at how much more I liked the photos taken indoor at night than ever before..... so I'm hoping that this gem of information will serve me well today at the wedding ceremony.... we shall see.
