Wedding Shoot

Been a while since I did a wedding so nice to be asked to cover a friends wedding at a local venue. It was tough work working in a position with the subjects in front of windows throwing a lot of backlight in otherwise quite a dimly lit room. I didn’t really want to use flash photography I prefer to use natural light so I used quite a high ISO using the Canon 1Dx an area the camera performs exceptionally well in. I also used used the Canon 7D MKII to record video inside the building and for a few external shots.  

On the 1Dx I used mainly these settings ISO 1000 at F6.3 giving me a speeds of around 1/125th second or there about in Aperture Priority. It’s rare I use manual on the 1Dx as I find it quicker to work in AV and just use the thumb on the rear dial to compensate if required.

Here are just a few of the shots.

One of my twin Daughters (Who both played bridesmaids) Sarah Jane at the reception. For the reception I switched to using a pair of off board Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite  with the Canon flash commander. In this shot I just used the one off board flash head.
