I have been really liking my 6d...it's odd, comparing to my mk3, there are some times where the colors fro mthe 6d pop a lot more than the mk3. And other times where the mk3 shines...I have been using them in tandem and having a lot of fun!
6d, 50mm lens at f8, 1/125, and 2 430 ex's to camera right
I hate happy couples, but that's a nice shot!
I know what i do isn't everyones cup of tea, but, I see mostly landscapes and macro work here. As someone who was greatly interested in how the 6d would stand up to shooting both people and weddings seeing more portrait work would have been awesome. So, I post my portrait work here, that way others on the fence and wondering may see!
First is a mix of both portrait/landscape!
then a few wedding images
Nice shots! I'm just jealous I can't marry all those women. I'm in dire need of love and being nagged to death by a myriad of wives!
I wish I could make as much money from my photography as wedding shooters do, that's for sure.
TY Man, but ---- doing this kind of work isn't the big cash grab you may think, at least not for everyone. This is only my second season shooting weddings. Established weddings togs do make a decent living, but thats the key...established! Last year I shot 6 weddings as primary shooter -- 2 of them in the 2k range, the other 4 sub 1k (basically ceremony only), and i shot 12 as 2nd shooter This year I have 4 in the 2k range, and 7 below 1.5k. So far 3 second shooter gigs. Next year i should have more full coverage weddings and less second shooting. But to really be making it with weddings you need to be doing 25-30 weddings at 2k at least, and that goal is probably at least 2-3 years off.
That's still a very nice paycheck. What area are you in, if I may ask?
I would just like to edit images for wedding or event shooters.
Wedding income is one of the most reliable ways to make money as a photographer, but it is not only a lot of work, you have to have the right temperament. You have to take charge, direct traffic, pose people, and manage personalities usually under serious time constraints. I don't shoot a ton of weddings, but I am always exhausted by the end of the day.
My unique position this Saturday is that I am both the wedding photographer and the officiating minister (I have a second shooter for the ceremony). I've done this before, and it definitely leaves me wiped.
No doubt about that! It's something I definitely know from experience. People actually have to want to do what you say. It's good you can command people like that. The only way I can do that, is by getting ugly with them...and they certainly aren't smiling at me then!
I could only be a wedding photographer, if I had a team of kind people, probably mostly female (who are somehow also nice)...telling the subjects how and where to pose, etc. I would also have to somehow get pleasure out of seeing couples in love. None of these things will ever happen for me...haha.
Btw, that is some smooth bokeh highlights from that Tamron 70-200.
