I have a couple doing an engagement party on a "cruise" line on the Chicago lakefront in early spring time. They rented out the whole thing and have about 300 guests.
Thankfully, there will be a ton of natural light, but I'm concerned with a few things and would like some professional input.
1. I shoot with a 5DMKII and a 7D. I've never shot in the rain before so just in case it does rain, what do you usually do? I have a few shots that I have imagined already and they would need to be done outside. How can I protect my equipment?
2. Fast shutter and open f/stop should stop any motion (w/o flash of course), however not sure what to expect on a sizable boat in terms of swaying and movement. I've only been on a boat a couple times and honestly don't remember if they are able to sway much due to the weight of them. Any words of advice or am I just over thinking it?
3. In case of motion sickness (I've never had, but I've hardly been on boats), any suggestions on what to take with me to calm it down?
I'm sure I have more questions, but any help on these ones would be very much appreciated.
Thanks for your help in advance!
