Hi, as a guest I tried to stay out of the way from the official photographer and got these.

Just one question, why will you take such a lens as a guest to a wedding?

Why not?
Nice pics.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Maybe because is a big white long lens, you're not working, that's the reason why they sell small compact cameras and 8 megapixels cellphones, but it must be just me.

I totally disagree. If one has a nice camera/lens and wants to make some images, especially if friends/family will attend, have at it. The OP did a nice job staying out of the way, which the long lens allows for.


just a few of my thoughts...

No you're not. I agree it's in poor taste to do that. I don't understand that. If I'm at a wedding I will take our G12 and leave all my wedding stuff at home. I'm there as a guest to enjoy myself and the wedding, I don't need to be messing around with doing photography as a guest.

Yeah, its you. Neither a compact or a cell phone camera will give you creative options of a DSLR since they are limited by their small sensor size. And in fact either of those two choices would require you to be closer than with a 70-200 lens.

An "Uncle Bob" gets in the way of the official photographer; the photos shown here cannot be construed as that.

Creative images? who told you that you were invited to that wedding to get creative images ? LMAO
You supposed to be there as a guest, that's all, but it is old good, what ever float your boat.

what is the difference what lens he brought? Would you be less irritated if he brought a 24mm?

I understand what your meaning is. He is a guest and should concentrate on having a good time but he did stay out of the way. I have shot weddings where guests have told me that I am in their shot that I just posed and lit. IMO a guest having a longer lens is a plus. When I attend a wedding as a guest I let my wife take the pics. I have a good time. But to each his/her own.

You grabbed some good captures.
