    Having a chat

    by Chris Sitnik » Sun Dec 02, 2012 10:24 am

    Last weekend I went to the wedding of a family member. Wasn't real happy with a lot of my shots in the church, need to invest in a speedlight but that's another story. Outside the church everyone was busy taking photos of the couple and their family. I happened to turn around and spot the two flower girls, who happen to be my cousins daughters and cousins to each other, sat on the stone wall having a girl chat. I'm not quite sure whether I prefer the colours or B&W versions so I'll post both. C&C welcome of course :)

    Yeah maccas isn't a great backdrop I'll admit. was a bit of a spur of the moment thing and unfortunately, these two can be a mighty uncooperative when they're aware someone is taking their photo. Point taken on what your comment previously said before you changed it to "bin it"

    They are just cute, not great photos but I bet the family will love them.


    Photographing weddings is recording the day, often the favorite shot is far from the best shot.


    ( Personally I think more photos of maccas would be great, I LOVE MY MACCAS :D :D )

    I agree with what Dug said that the best photo may not be the best. Let the bride & groom decide if they like the shots.

    Something I would consider next time is getting closer with a shorter focal length to give an impression of connection with the motif. As it is, there is a considerable detachment between chatters and viewers.
