During this last shoot the lady pestering me came over after the ceremony and even asked me if i had 4 aa's she could borrow for her flash. I didn't as i was eating batteries like crazy because the place was a blackhole, but really... you want to borrow bats?
Hi guys, first I'm a newby, and I hope you forgive me for digging up old posts, I'm really enjoying reading the older posts, and mostly only reading, but a few I have found a strong desire to pass comment.
I am strictly amateur if you take the earning thing to make a pro, but I try to take the act of freezing moments in time seriously, I do take gear to weddings, and have had the pro pass comment audibly but not to my face about that bloody flash, modified my behaviour to take account of his comment, as my friends were paying him, would have done it earlier if he had made me aware, one of those things I hadn't thought about until it was mentioned, very conscious of it now! I had the pleasure of donating a set of 4AAs to his fund as he forgot / burned through his spare set, I had 4 in the gun and 8 spares!
Another party was the inlaws xxth anniversary, I was primary photog as in, you have a nice camera don't you? Will you take some snaps for us!
One of the guests was a photog teacher, someone I would expect to be of "pro" level, she pointed out that I could be using my flash differently, it was off camera held aloft on a cord with a stofen at the time, and she suggested I should bounce from the ceiling, I suggested she look up, the ceiling was criss crossed with beams and had disco lights dangling all over, she still didn't get the significance until I explained about casting shadows!
What was that we used to say at school, can't do it, teach it?
