Re: Guests blocking my shot!!!

Being blocked is irritating, but after it's happened so many times, I now anticipate it often, and when I don't catch it in advance, I just resign myself and don't panic. Taky's shot above with the camera phone is actually kind of a cool shot, and could work out just fine in the end.

In the end, it's a live event, and while I get frustrated at times, I get less worked up about it than I used to; I try not to dwell on it, it is pointless. If I posted every blocked shot on here that I've had I wouldn't have time to work, there have been so many.

Re: Guests blocking my shot!!!

I don't sweat much these days. Everybody has a camera phone these days. If they want to be part of the wedding movie, let them be :)

This is another fun one. The guy was the groom's uncle who can't speak English. The groom told me let him do whatever he wants. So here's a special dedications to the "photographer uncle" :)
