I made it just in time to setup for this sunrise shot. The sky was on fire. I blended in 2 darker frames to recover highlights in the horizon.

I've been a bounce flash proponent for years now, but have lately embraced the idea of shooting weddings with natural light. I rarely use flash anymore for my family documentary photography and have experimented with it in less important parts of weddings in the past. But in this last wedding where the reception was basically an outdoor space and there was only one wall to bounce off of.....I basically said screw it and threw my flash into my bag.

One of the benefits of using fast primes vs 2.8 zooms for weddings is that you have 2 stops more head-room to expose for the ambient, but modern FF sensors are so sensitive these days that pushing the ISO isn't a big deal anymore. You get some noise, but it adds the photojournalism aesthetic of the photos IMO. The downside is that you'll have less uniformity in terms of lighting between the photos as how your subject is exposed depends on their proximity to ambient lights. But its also nice that there is less disconnect from the way your subject and the ambient scene is exposed

Redirect or missing ??????????????????
The pic isn't showing until I click on edit, when I then re-post the image disappears again.
Loaded fine over at FM though.

But it doesn't seem to be retroactive to even yesterday so something has changed that is only affecting today's posts.

The obstacles that come to mind is Sony’s auto white balance creating more work post processing. The use of fast primes also limits the depth of field where storytelling will become a blur in Bokeh.

This becomes part of photographers style and may change your views on how you document the venue and party.

I tend to use zooms with bounced flash to document and supplement with shallow depth of field images wide open with primes.

Interesting as I also document natural light for family in many cases due to convenience and pushing the limits of high ISO capabilities of the Sony camera. This was one reason why my Fuji system became less used as I am pushing my gear hard in low light.

So many ways to approach photography be at posed or photojournalistic style.

This is why I love fast 35's for documentary shots. Even at f1.2, there is enough DOF to keep your subjects fully in focus, and the FOV is wide enough that the storytelling the background is still pulled into the frame to give context, but thrown out of focus so it never overwhelms your subjects.
