My first wedding videos: Shooting with a HF100 and Redrock M2
Billy Shih Billy Shih is offline April 2nd, 2009, 06:14 PM

Hi everyone,

First off, thanks to everyone here! I've gotten so much from reading these forums the past few months and shot my sister's wedding using all the knowledge I've built up.

Anyway, I am posting to ask for some expert feedback from you all.

I see a lot of problems myself. The biggest is that since I'm using a consumer cam and the light hungry Redrock, I've tried to adapt a different style. I guess you might say, I have embraced grain and "soft" focus by necessity.

I created 2 videos for my sister and her husband (legal ceremony and destination wedding)
Seattle video: Jared and Tiffany's Seattle Wedding Video on Vimeo

Jamaica video : My Sister & Jared's Full Wedding Video - All Redrock M2 Wedding on Vimeo

The reason I'm posting these now, is that I will be traveling to Mexico to shoot my other sister's wedding and two of my good friends are getting married and I will be shooting their wedding as well, so want to continue to improve and get some feedback.

I'm not really looking to do this professionally, but want to do a good job for my friends and family.

Thanks ahead of time,
Billy

first off, very nice of you to do this work for your sister.

The first comment I had would be that I would like to have heard some live audio earlier in the video, even if it were just a few clips here and there, but it was good to hear it at the end with the judge and their vows.

Secondly, good job shooting in such a tight little room with lots and lots and lots of backlighting! That room would drive me crazy!

Thanks Jason.

I definitely need to learn how to work more audio into the video. Thanks for the suggestion.

Backlighting is definitely tough, same thing happened to me during the Jamaican ceremony, but it was 10 times worse! My other sister and friend's weddings that are coming up will have the same issue...
