Second shooting a Wedding
« on: June 24, 2014, 10:09:33 AM »
I asked a Wedding photographer friend if I could second shoot sometime, I wanted to get some experience for a friend's wedding I reluctantly agreed to shoot in October.

Here are a selection of my images from that day.

Next time you might want to consider having the model tilt her head toward her right.  The pose she has is already weighted on her left (hair, veil, ear, bent arm, flowers).  A head tilt to her right would add a touch of balance with the right hand holding the dress

Those are some nice pictures.  Kudos for being willing to be a second shooter.  I am still terrified by weddings.   ;D
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind - but I don't believe I was in any position to interfere as second :) (This was a natural shot whilst the groom was getting a photoshoot from main photographer)

I was on candid duty all day :D
