And the likes of Joe Buissink and his second shooter take about 6 thousand shots between them, having watched them do a live wedding on creative live, it wasn't spraying and praying either.

From what I have seen there is some sort of stigma in this line of work that the more you shoot the worse you are.

If you get the results clients are happy with then what does it really matter.

I do around 60 weddings a year, averaging approx 2500 photos taken at each. I would need a supercomputer to load all it's files. Not to mention on all the shots I would miss waiting for the buffer to catch up. Give me a 5d3 any day

I also shoot around 2500 photos at an average wedding (between me and my second shooter). I agree, the file size would eat up my hard drives in no time plus take longer to render. I love my 5D III and 5D II. I seen no need for more megapixals.

I did a 14 hour wedding yesterday and got to around 3500 shots..

I think I'm extra paranoid about eyes blinking or out of focus so I like to shoot, focus recompose shoot focus recompose the same scene

Probably a bad habit

I average 1200 a wedding. It does annoy me when photogs talk so high about the newest gear. you might have the latest body but if you dont know how to use it, whats the point?. I shoot weddings with a 5Dc and a 1DMKII. i love them!, im comfortable with them, I get great images and beautiful prints. either way thats just my opinion.


5Dc * 1DMkII * 40D * 24-70 2.8 * 85 1.8 * and more!

I was the solo shooter at my last wedding and I had 2,500. Sure, I'd love to only shoot 500 and them all be keepers, but till I get that good, its lots of culling in LR. :oops:

I think it's funny you were there to relax....with almost $10k in gear.

shooting IS relaxing.


hell, when I need to let off some steam, shooting is my way out. Big white at a wedding isnt my style. Tough conditions, not sure you can do better with any other gear.

Eek... certainly a lot of tension going on in this thread, but I can see why. No offense to the OP, but the images really are all over the place. Either your screen needs calibration or you're colorblind? Either way, WB is wayyyy off and highlights are blown, yet contrasty and body parts are cut off. It's just really hard to be like, "Wow, yeah, the camera handled the situation great", when the post-processing appears to have been done by an amateur or enthusiast, at best. I agree with one of the other comments - perhaps you should share the SOOC raw images? Just my 2 cents...

Regarding the white balance, are you actually color blind? If not, I would seriously consider getting your monitor calibrated because if you can't see that there is seriously something funky going on, you might have some disappointed clients in the future. I really am just trying to help because it's painfully obvious that we're either being trolled or there's some sort of major calibration issue. All the best,

Ryan.

I personally think some of the comments are hysterical - especially from the skier photog when you look at his website and see massively over blue skies, over white or grey snow, backlight scenarios with dark faces etc and then tossing stones about my colour blindness - got a good chuckle over that one

from my original posting

"with the amount of backlighting (it was brutal), i have taken a somewhat artistic spin on the PP to try and extract something that I liked"

i will repeat, "artistic spin"

i decided to see what I could create that I liked given it wasn't my gig, the bride, a 1st cousin of my partner who married the couple that we flew out 2000 miles to be at their wedding, a couple who was given my 10 minutes of photos the next day (which they have shared on social media and got lots of nice comments), photos that were taken quickly from the bleachers, between people's head in front of me and maybe 10 people of 250 at the wedding saw my camera and 'white' lens taken quickly out of the bag to take some pictures straight into the blinding sun

i don't let critique phase me at all - I rather enjoy it - especially the constructive negative stuff


Here is another example (5DSR with 24-105 @ 24mm, F8, 1/100) 'almost' straight into the sun, just out of frame camera left mid day, no flash, from a very last minute 10 minute elopement, we did at the cottage for a couple who drove up from the city to get hitched (she is very ill with cancer).

The image has the shadows lifted in LR, a large boat in the background removed in PS as well as their casted shadow on the grass.

When I was exposing / metering this image, I tried to push it without losing the blue in the sky because I wanted to see if I could get some detail in his shaded dark blue suit - more DR would help.

Let it rip

Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

It's a good example of why mid day is not the best time to shoot? Grass also has a yellowish tint to it.

Agree with this. Especially if a hot day. I will usually fix the top of the forehead as it shows on this photo with the shine, or elsewhere on the face if I think it helps. Not blaming shooter here because it happens a lot when hot and the glistening starts to happen from it. Like the blue sky. Might even mention it to the client and they will ask or like that I took the time to point it out and fix it.
