This wedding kicked off me 2010 season... I was a little rusty and worn out by the end of the night. I should have conditioned my self better during the off-season...

Hey Steve,

Some really nice shots in there and a great story of their day which I'm sure they'll love. The opening ring animation was v.cool, as was the transition with the passing truck around 0:14 - I love that way of cutting a scene - Spielberg made it famous in Jaws with people passing the frame on the beach. Your slider shots looked good too.

Not sure if you're after critique, but one thing that particularly caught my eye was the low shot of her walking down the aisle. It can be quite unflattering as it accentuates size.

Are you shooting any DSLR stuff?

Cheers,

MB.

Hey matt. I'm always after critiques :-)
that's how I normally shoot the bride comming down the isle. Usually the photog is over my shoulder. I've just been used to staying low. I'll rethink this shot compistion for my following weddings. I did my best to frame my shots to make them look their best. I agree that this could have been a little better.
I like my slider but unfortantly it wasn't adjusted properly and I was fighting some friction. Lessons learned.
Thanks again for watching and commenting. I always look forward to your input.
Steve

Hey Steve,

Yeah - I don't necessarily think it's a 'bad' angle to shoot it at and I do it quite often too - just probably a reflection of the couple in this particular wedding.

Hi Steve. I think this is one of your best videos you have ever uploaded for sharing, despite the fact you're talking about technical errors. As said by others, the ring shot is neat (so tired of ring shots in general, but this one was too clever to ignore! :) ) . What I liked the most though, is that unlike what happens usually, you took a couple that shouldn't be considered impressive by the standards of fashion magazines, and created a film that is beautiful and touching. And I think that is the most important thing when coming to the creation of a wedding film. Thumbs up.

Dimitris...

Thanks for watching and commenting. Thanks for the compliments. As you may know, I'm a fan of your work. So it means a lot to me to hear you say that. I guess I picked up something from watching Matt Barwicks impressive ring shots :-)
The B&G really loved this video... I was stressing over the angles for days before the shoot, but came out pleased with the results.

Kren, thanks for watching and posting... No where near JMAG material though :-)
