yet another wedding

Thought I"d share this one as it turned out much better then expected, where I was ranting away a few weeks back because I had a wedding where nothing went as expected this time it all went well. When you shoot solo as I you need some very good planning and a set of eye's on your back to secure all that you need to cover that day.

I have followed for many years now what the trends are in weddingvideo and after trying a bit too hard I just decided to just follow my own path, I see too many weddingvideos that all look alike these days that it's hard to tell who has made it, you have the trendsetters that work with high end gear, have 2 or more operators and deliver outstanding work that many other try to copy and I have been one of them, that's a way to learn all the tricks of the trade. I only experienced that shooting solo has quite some limitations, you often have to take it as it comes and choose for cameraangles that are the safest and not necessarily the most creative, especially during live events like a ceremony.
I am still working to improve my workflow, make it easier, faster but try to cover the basics as good as I can and only when time allows, get creative.

I wish I could use my panasonic dslr's all day long, love the image they ouput but still don't have the guts to trade my sony cx730's for continuous recordings, better safe then sorry I guess. :)

Anyways, here's what I put together, if I can maintain that level throughout the season I"m happy.

Re: yet another wedding

Hi Chris,

I'm the same. My longest package is eight hours so although they can add on extra time I like to be out of there once the dancing gets going.

Some couples want right until the end but they have to want it bad enough to pay extra for it. Most of my weddings are Busselton to Margaret River so add two or three hours drive to each wedding. It's nice to do a wedding close to home now and then and be home within 15 minutes.

We should get together at some point over a beer/coffee and trade notes. I know we're both "mature gents" but you know how it is - never stop learning!

Re: yet another wedding

Thanks Mark

Actually I will be in Busselton on the 20th December and we will sleep over on the Saturday too so be free on Sunday ... if you don't have a wedding at that stage on the Sunday we can certainly catch up for a coffee. You are in Bunbury are you not? We can touch base later in the year and see if it's feasible and have a chat. I don't do many South West weddings if I can help it as the driving is a pain so I prefer to be local and leave the distance ones to you!!

Chris
