Canon 5D Mark III High ISO & HDR Test: After 4 years of development the Canon 5D Mark III digital SLR was released to the relief of many a wedding photographer only a few weeks ago. Surprisingly the camera was available to buy also immediately and I decided to take the plunge.
As a busy London Wedding Photographer I didn’t want to test the camera at a real wedding so decided to put the camera through its paces before and see how much of the new or improved functionality I will actually use. There’s lots of talk on the web of a two stop ISO improvement over the 5DMark II which in my opinion is exaggerated however still a considerable improvement, perhaps one stop.
What’s common between Lily Allen and Kate Middleton except the fact that both got married in 2011?
Well, it’s the retro look and the vintage inspired wedding dresses they wore on their special day!
So, why a sudden craze for vintage inspired wedding dresses? Just because the celebrities are wearing them, right! Wrong! Admitted, celebrities do inspire, but there’s something about vintage wedding dresses that do not need celebrities for publicity. In fact, they are the celebrities in their own right.
Unique Wedding Ideas in the UK : If you live in the UK or planning to get married here, there are no shortages of unique wedding ideas to make your day historic. While you may be inclined to celebrate your wedding with the usual pomp and gay abandon – much like most of the weddings happening around UK, yet you must ponder over the thought of making your wedding a unique affair by doing something that is unusual and surprisingly pleasant for everyone present. Not for a moment am I suggesting that the wedding should be a dull affair. However, the effort should be to make it an unforgettable event for the guests as well as yourself.
I see today that night time weddings will be allowed in the future… about time too…
Night time wedding photography will certainly be fun and challenging for wedding photographers as many who are scared of the thought of creative flash photography will need to learn fast, if to compete in this new market.
As a wedding photographer in London I have no doubt there will be some amazing opportunities to creating unique wedding photos. I am already thinking of photos of the sun setting in the background on Summers evening. Or dramatic night skys like the one featured here.
I was spending a little bit of time browsing the internet for wedding dresses, not because I want one just because they are so beautiful and it’s quite cleansing for the soul to look at beautiful things whether you intend to buy them or like just like looking at outrageously priced diamonds, you will probably never own them but it doesn’t hurt to window shop.
