Hi guys,

Im back after my first wedding. I wonder if I can post fotos without clients permission. Anyway all went well except couple of shots where flash bounce knocked me out. Dark shadow of eyelashes and eyebrows on the face, appearing as if subject has black circles around the eyes. I really want to know why it happened, was I too close to the subject? Otherwise all went well the client liked all fotos which I gave them.

My main problem was the public, i mean friends n relatives of the family with their fones n hell lota cameras around. I wonder how to address this problem. Being physical obsticle is one thing but another problem was their flashes.

Shall i refuse to shot or what will be best course to follow.

thankyou!

Just think everyone of those people is a potential new client or source for providing you with new clients, if your nasty to them or obstruct them it will bite you in the wallet.

I think its best to learn to work around them, with them and control them when absolutely necessary (e.g. take the B&G away for a few minutes to grab some shots) as anything else is likely to undermine your marketing.

Thats just my newbie opinion though :)

I'm going to try something different at the next wedding to address all the annoying Uncle Bobs. Rather than trying to prohibit them from shooting during formals, I'm going to give them 10 minutes to do their shooting. Then it's my turn. I'll let you know if it works.

I would never post photos of people without permission and full disclosure as to use. Not only are the guest potential clients, but you don't want to take a chance on abusing the trust of your current ones. I get releases for all portfolio building work, etc..., in writing on the final invoice. When in doubt, get permission.

I can only tell you what I do...

Before I shot the formals I turn to the crowd of people who I know are going to shoot and say:

I don't mind you shooting after me however you will potentially ruin their wedding pictures if you shoot with me. I will count to 3 and shoot after you see my flash then feel free to fire away.

That usually works... usually....:rolleyes:

I don't know the laws in Norway, but I believe here we would be able to post them since they did not expect privacy. They were at an event and should expect to be photographed, and unless you are humiliating them in some way, I doubt anyone would mind, and would actually feel a bit famous (as some people have put it to me) for having their picture on your website. ;)

Since it was my first time I didnt stoped anyone from shooting but then I had to delete alot of photos cos bg didnt always looked into mine camera and some cos of shadows by different light.

Next time I go, I will tell BG inadvance that they hv to look into my camera when Im there. For pubic I will ask them to kindly take a break. Whatelse I can do!

we ask that people not shoot while doing the shots, and tell them that we'll give them a little time after the shot has been taken to take any shots (this is usually 20-30 seconds) then we interupt by calling people in for the next shot, has worked well so far :D

In the USA you can post photos in forums as long as you are not making money on the images post wedding, but if you are making money from them aside from original purchase, you must have a release from every one in the images.
As a photographer who displays in my own Galleries I have the right to display any image I make unless it is "for sale".

I always tell people that they are more than welcome to shoot after I take my shot. I do tell them that I don't even want them to raise their camera until I say to because someone in the formals will always look at that camera instead of mine and then the shot will be ruined. I also remind them that the more pictures they take, the longer I will have to take and that the free food and alcohol is already being consumed while they are wasting our time! That generally gets the Bride's Father's attention.

You guys don't turn your flash around and hit the DOF button for the modeling light? Scares everyone away!

Seriously though, in this day and age, you really can't prevent people from taking pictures while you do it. You just have to get people's attention when it is your turn or make yourself a presence. If there is a MC, you can kindly ask him to announce that they can take pictures AFTER you are done. Still there will be some uncle bob taking pics, but it really minimizes it.

I tell everyone that while I am firing my camera, it will temporarily disable theirs. They all look at me like "HUH". Some of them believe me and don't shoot until they are sure I'm done and the ones that know I'm talking hogwash get what I'm insinuating and generally wait for my okay to take their turn. Then of course once in awhile there is the one or two a$$es in the group that just ignore me.
