Brek01: Adobe suck, why woud anyone be bothered to do this? I use affinity for photos, nuke for vfx, and davinci for colour grading et al.

Lol. Really? You could be right, but it has nothing to do with their software. They are a disgracful company. I assure you there is not the slightest bit of envy in my thinking.

makinworks: If they were serious in getting professional photography and or motion picture? It wasn't specific but they did say in a tasteful way. That means not like a degrading porno.

But that said. Cliche is what all these comments are bouncing around here with because no one is looking at from a legal perspective.

If a married couple understand their limits in being able to get the coverage and professional postproduction needed to make this 'tasteful' that is where this becomes legal.

The married couple sits down with a wedding planner and that person can find and hire the appropriate film crew or photographer/cinematographer.....
Stop for one moment

A director of photography should in fact plan the lighting and the cameras ....if this budget is low then he DP has to actually do double jobs...or rather mount multiple cameras with zoom lenses fast enough to capture in low light setting pre lit, but tasteful as in Hollywood 101, that opens a can of worms....the range is Nymphomaniac - Lars von tried or David Lynch -Wild at Heart?
But rather let's focus on the comedy side and reality tv side to all this 'capturing the moment'

This could be a very good thing for the marriage if they ever forget how much they loved each other they could always go back and watch every anniversary to remember. Rekindle the flame. And also the comedy of the event because things don't always go as planned.

He may not be able to perform knowing there is a camera or be too drunk to perform. She may be in the Douro point of view and ok sober he could too, then that means the fly on the wall must be covert.

Back to the plan of set design

Go pro cameras take the place of mirrors these days
But using them wisely you could in fact grab the VR version of this Consumation with as many cameras as possible but you still are going to need longer lens zoom cameras to capture from several angles at one time various points of view so that the editor or the couple could view raw footage themselves therefore editing together their own consumation from the various multi cameras.

If they have iMovie of FCPX or Adobe Premier or any editing software available

The point is coverage coverage coverage
And Sergio Leone style shooting extreme close ups like macro at times. Watch 'the good the bad and the ugly" Nd you will see as well as the first 15 minutes of "Fist Full of Dynamite" or "Duck Sucker!" That film edited probably the best montage of extreme close ups ever in cinema history! It shows true character.

Which leads me to sound.
Good sound from several sources placed discreetly to not bulge in places they shouldn't be or they might be seen in camera

The communications between the bride the groom the photographer about what exactly they want should be written down in the contract so that everyone understands what is expected and also this would then in fact prove if this was a serious idea or just a neat goofy concept they came up with to be out in the new millienium where it seems you are not cool unless you have a se tape with a million plus views and twats and funkbook shares, at least Snapchat you could make it timed before James Bond exploding or popping the cork of champagne! Grand finally ending!
Which I think the couple dreams they want?
They might pressure themselves but their own desires can be powerful enough to be a quick short movie not a regular feature film as everyone might expect. I'm surprised Paris Hilton or Kanye West and the Kardasian clan have not thought of this! The ratings would be off the roof! And TMZ would be on it like goose pimples on a naked chicken!

You said DP.

plusalpha: In my opinion the future is in touch screen. I was used to Lightroom & PS, now my postproduction is entirely on ipadpro+pencil+Affinity Photo. I can only see pros with this setup. 1) ipad pro screen is awesome, to get a similar quality monitor you have to spend the same if not more; 2) pencil equals PRECISION, you can do things impossible with the mouse 3) affinity software costs about one month of CC subscription 4) and finally, most important, you can touch your pictures, I listen to this statement first on youtube but you can’t understand if you don’t live it. It could seem weird but it feels more intimate to work so close to your creation. And in some ways it’s more similar to the analogic postproduction.

wow, you burned him hotter than a pentium 1 233mhz.

DMillier: I use a Behringer MIdi controller for lightroom along with an open source utility to connect it to Lightroom. This unit is festooned with recording studio type knobs, buttons and sliders. The software utility allows you to map any knob or button to any adjustable slider in LR.

This allows me to twiddle a knob to adjust exposure, contrast, lights and darks etc rather than using the mouse.

Never quite been sure why there isn't more of these kinds of units available for software that is fiddly to adjust with plain old keyboard and mouse. It's a LOT more intuitive to adjust software slider controls using a physical volume control or fader type control than dragging with a mouse. Imagine steering your car by dragging a virtual steeting wheel with a mouse...

I like the cut of your gib sir, I have a variety of behringer control surfaces, had not thought of using one for control of apps.

On article Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy (375 comments in total)

Speaking for myself, I am happy with CS3, it does all I need it to do, so I am not upgrading to any new version anytime soon, which means no revenue for adobe, so I guess I see why they are doing it.

Bryan Costin: It's a bad precedent. Even if the scenes were visually identical, there's absolutely nothing wrong with making a new photo/video/drawing/whatever that looks like someone else's photo/video/drawing/whatever. The photographer owns the original work that they created. They don't own the idea behind a photograph, or the scene you built, or the landscape you pointed your camera at, or the style you've cultivated. All you get is what you make. You don't get to stop other people from making it themselves.

I don't think it is a bad precedent, the concept was the photographers, the 'industry' that is built around the singer has chosen to steal the concept to make their 'artist' look 'better' for want of a better word, simply to generate more income for themselves, why not approach the photographer and say we love your work, can you come up with a concept for the video???? As photographers we should be supporting, not condemning.
