Yup. I just got another 600EX-RT primary b/c I was intrigued by the radio triggering and thought it would be neater to have another one and use the built-in triggering to do some quick and dirty OCF work. I need to RTFM on the thing. I was playing around with it at the wedding and was literally lost on how to lower the power on the slave unit while increasing power on the master unit. :lol: I think I need to put them in different groups and then adjust power on the group. (?) Anyways, this was during the downtime at the reception so no harm, no foul. :)

And yeah...they changed to the tuxedo T-Shirt in the middle of the reception. Funny...

a quick question, if I may:

do you have any feedback on how distractive it is for guests to have flash stands nearby on the reception?

I can't bring myself to use them even though it means much better quality/less pp work as I had a feedback from shooting weddings as a 2nd shooter back in a day, that it really bugs people sitting nearby. So overall trade in is convenience for guests/clients on the wedding day vs less desirable quality of the images after all.

I usually put the light stands by the walls/corners of the room or right next to the DJ/band speakers so it doesn't get in the way. If there's even a remote chance of someone tripping over the stands, I won't put it at that location. I also have them at least 10 feet high, again, so it doesn't bother the guests too much. I've never had that problem with this setup.

love your stuff as always nick

the ring shot threw me off, any reason why it was in blue light? i also thought you cut her feet off in 3, but then realized it the watermark that i was seeing. was that with a 70-200? it's sharp.

I used the lighting that the DJ had around the floor of the reception hall for that ring shot. I figured it would be something different than the usual stuff. Of course I also have a regular ring shot. :)

Yup, the isle walk shot was with the 70-200 f2.8 IS MKII. And yup, it's sharp! :)

ISO1600-2000. Never went over 2000. It was a well lit church.

Great pictures as usual, Nick - thanks again for having me shoot with you :cool:

Here's my take

1 - Not sure if I dig the framing; I usually like either a lot or a little negative space, and this seems somewhat in-between.

2 - Very nice

3 - I wish there was less background clutter (water bottles, pamphlets, door hinge things, etc), but it is what it is.

4 - Nice - makes me want a fisheye.

5 - Some of the dress and flower details are lost - not a huge deal, maybe they're recoverable?

6 - Solid

7 - I actually had the opposite approach and exposed more for her, leaving the window overexposed. It works either way, glad we shot differently.

8 - Cool shot, I'd like to see a little deeper depth of focus though so more than just the front facet of the gem is sharp though.

Really nice overall!
