Re: Help - volunteered to photograph a wedding
In reply to WIMorrison, 8 months ago

Thank you to all for some very nice compliments about my existing photographic skills. You will have seen that what I have been 'volunteered' to undertake is far from my normal style - hence my nervousness

The tips that you suggest are all very sensible - the only challenge will be getting to any rehearsal as it is 500 miles away (nothing to some people, but a long way in UK :)) and I currently cant afford the time off work

The book looks very useful, as does the one on flash photography, again not a strong point of mine, and I have a few weeks to read them.

I think I will also take the advice and rent a 24-70 f2.8 for the weekend as this covers the range I don't really have - certainly not in a zoom. Would the 24-120 f4.0 work - I know it is a stop slower but it will giver extra reach which might be useful?

again, many thanks for excellent advice.
