I have a question...
Some friends of mine are having a very low-budget wedding and have asked me to take some photos. Normally I shoot in Manual mode because once I've metered I don't have to worry about different tones throwing the camera off and affecting the exposure. But at a wedding, when things are happening quite quickly, I'm wondering if it would be safer to shoot in Av and just dial in exposure comp as necessary. My only concern with using Av, is that the camera has control over the S/S and I might not notice if it falls below a value that would preclude hand holding.
I'm by no means a professional and so I've made it quite clear to the B & G that the photos will "be what they are". They said that they were seriously considering not having a photographer and that any photos would be a bonus. I guess that takes off some of the pressure, but it would still be nice to do it reasonably well.
What are your thoughts, I'd be really interested to know!
Thanks very much
