Big Camera Big Pressure

Standard

Meeko and Ali

Yesterday I attended a wedding banquet for one at my friends at [eGain], Ali Chan.    I was able to meet his lovely wife Meeko, some of his family, and catch up with some old friends and aquaintences from eGain.  I brought along the D70s to take a few photos, but I ended up taking a lot more.  At one point it seemed like I was the elected wedding photographer, as there wasn’t but one other person with an SLR.  And of course if the groom requests that you take photo after photo you’re going to do it, right?

I just felt pressure for the photos to come out right, perfect in a sense.  I think the over all result is ok, but some of the photos feel like they have too much flash.  I’ll need to see if I can work with some filters, Photoshop some of the photos to see if I can get a better look.  What is posted on the [Flickr account] and at Yahoo! Photos will be the straight RAW images converted to jpeg with no other real edits.

I had a problem working with the crowd of people and their cameras.  If I had to do it all over again, I think I would be a little more forceful with the subjects, ensuring they look at me when taking the photos and getting better position in taking the picture.

If you have any thoughts you’d like to share, please do so.  I can use any comments 🙂
