It doesn't happen very often - the last time was several years ago - but I had the flash from a P&S "intrude" upon an image I shot during the processional at a wedding I did this past Sunday night.

I have to honestly say the results are pleasing. The flash from the P&S acts as a modelling light and gives a bit more dimension to the single bounce flash from my 580ex (with the little card extended).

P&S are so affordable, it seems like 50% if not more of the guests have them, always taking pictures, with flashes that start to show up in a few pictures. How often are you getting this?

It's a little bright on the bride's shoulders, but isn't too bad. Cute couple.

It's really the first time it's happened to me in several years..... last time was when I was using film at weddings.

You're right about the brightness on the young lady's shoulder Kevin. I just converted this from the RAW original with no manual PP on my part. If they order this as an enlargement I'll apply some exposure adjustment layers as well as sharpenning.

What I find annoying about P&S cameras is the red light that comes on for 2-4 seconds as autofocus assist when it's dark.

I thought so too Evan ;).

The groom is a professional chef. The "feather fan" and associated Peacock motiff was actually carried over to the wedding cake which was unlike anything I've ever seen...... certainly not traditional. I'm still trying to make up my mind what I think about it.

On a side note, I always pull that exit sign from a photo where my eye might gravitate. You stated you did no adjusting. Do you pull it as well?

Hard to remember - that was 7 years ago - but as one of the proofs I would not have cloned it out. Had they chosen it for their finished album or an enlargement I would have removed it.
