Good Evening Everybody,
Sorry for the super late post today - just too much stuff going on around the studio again today. We've just launched my Digital Resource Center which I announced in the above post above so I hope you'll check it out.
We are also packing our bags as we head to Chicago bright and early tomorrow morning where I will be presenting a program for the Chicagoland Professional Photographers Association.
Then on Thursday I present a private seminar for about 20 photographers in the Chicago area too. After that we rush back late Thursday afternoon so I can get the gear packed for Friday's wedding. Then the Photowalk on Saturday - Whew!
Hey, one quick note before I get on with today's Technique Tuesday. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was interviewed by Dave Warner over at LensFlare35.com. Dave's site is dedicated to Pro Canon shooters. He has several podcasts on line right now by some very talented and well known photographers.
I just got an email from David telling me that the podcast just went "LIVE". We had a great time during the very lively interview so I think you will enjoy it. You can give it a listen right here.
OK, it's time - let's get on with today's post.
A Live Shoot At The Wedding Reception
This past Saturday we had a great wedding at one of my favorite locations here in the city. My plan was to have my assistant, Nicholas, shoot some video of me during various parts of the day.
The party was rockin' and I thought this would be a good time to try to pull off my "Live Reception Shoot" idea. I must admit, it went better than expected. I was surprised I could actually hear myself on my lapel mic with the very loud band playing in the background.
As I move through the candid shooting, the video pops with the images I was shooting - very cool. I added some call outs to the video to help explain some of the details of the moments. Hit the PLAY button and enjoy. It's kind of fun., - David
