Good Afternoon Everybody,
What can I say, we had about 100 seats left for tomorrow's web-cast. I sent out a quick email last night figuring that would fill up the last seats. I don't know if I can explain what happened but things just exploded overnight. Read the article below for the rest of the story.
Over 2100 Registered for "Captured By The Light" Web-Cast Tomorrow!!!
As mentioned earlier, the web-cast "room" will hold up to 1000 attendees. I will "open the doors" at 2:30 p.m. EST for logging in - 30 minutes before the program's start time of 3:00 p.m. The first 1000 to log-in will be guaranteed a seat.
So as to not disappoint anyone, we are considering alternate re-broadcast dates and possibly an additional web-cast for those who won't be able to attend because of the large number of registrations and our "room size" limit.
Wow! Who would have guessed our numbers would be so large? Thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm to attend the program. And don't worry - I promise that everyone who wants to attend the program will get that chance. I'll keep you posted on the details.
Anyway, let's get on with calmer things today like this week's episode of Technique Tuesday. Here we go...
It's More Than About Capturing The Action, It's Really About Capturing The Moment
With today's cameras and super fast shooting rates, it's easy to get caught up in just shooting the action at a wedding. It falls back to that old adage someone once quipped at one of my seminars - "If you can't shoot 'em good, shoot 'em fast." I still smile at that remark.
But weddings are more than just "action". A wedding day is composed of a series of wonderful moments of interactions among the bride and groom, families and friends.
It's those moments that are most important for us to cover. It's the moments that tell the special story of the day. It's those special moments that need to live forever in the the clients' wedding album for everyone to be able to relive and enjoy.
What I'm talking about is capturing the actions together with the reactions to those actions. Both the action and reaction comprise the moments we need to preserve for our clients.
That the basis for today's tutorial. Today I'll walk you though three series of images that make that point. I'll show you the action and then the reactions. You be the judge to determine if I then captured some of the the real moments of the day. If our wedding photography is all action shots, then they're mostly snapshots. We can do better for our clients.
Hit the PLAY button below and enjoy the show.
I hope you can clearly understand the point I was trying to make. Sure, it takes a "sixth sense" to be able to anticipate those reactions but that's what we are being paid to do. It's the shots so many new photographers are missing. It's the reason our clients hire us for the job.
Hey gang, that's it for me today. We are wrapping the edit on my Digital WakeUp Call tour DVD set. And now that looks like it's turning into possible a 4 DVD set instead of the original three. It seems I added lots more additional content than I previously thought.
Hey, you can still pre-order the 3 or 4 DVD set right here. Bundle it with an autographed copy of my wedding book, and it's even a better deal;~)
OK, I've got to get scootin'. We have clients arriving shortly and I've got real work to do today. How about I see everyone tomorrow for another episode of PhotoFAVS Wednesday.
See ya' then, -David
