Doing some Wedding Photography
Last March, I was invited to attend a church wedding by a former officemate from Microsoft. I’m not really big on weddings and this is the 4th formal invitation I got in the last six months, the other three I totally junked because either it was too far in the province or I just woke up late in the morning.
This time, it was in the afternoon and was held at the Santuario de San Jose in Greenhills East so I wasn’t able to find a good excuse. :D Better yet, I brought my handy Canon Digital Ixus 30 to try it out for some wedding photography.
Entire gallery can be viewed here.
Ok, I’m thru with the tangent.
Most of the long shots I took were useless. They were too blurry either because my hands were shaking too much or there was little light available inside the church (I hope it’s the latter). So, with my point-and-shoot camera, that’s the best I could do on such a situation.
Which brings me back to my previous question, is it time to buy a Digital SLR, prosumer camera or something close to it (specifically the Canon Rebel XT)?
Yeah, they say it’s not in the camera but in the photographer…
What do you think? :D How long does one have to familiarize with a point-and-shoot before moving forward to a semi-pro?
