Week 4 Photographing a Wedding


I assisted Becca Dilley, http://www.beccadilley.com/, at one of the weddings she was photographing. It was the marriage of Michael & Jessica in the Science Museum of Minnesota. It was incredibly fun and I learned a lot about photographing weddings and photography in general. I also learned that this is defiantly the type of photography that I want to specialize in. It was so incredible being a part of such a joyous event as a wedding and I spent so much time with the wedding party that I had gotten to know them by the end of the night. The Photograph above is my favorite out of the 300+ I made. I like how I caught Jessica at the perfect moment when she was touching the ring and looking lovingly up at Mike. This was made right after the ceremony when they were signing the official documents.

There were a lot of great photographs from this so I felt I had to share a few more. We spent a few hours before the wedding outside taking photographs of the bride and groom and the wedding party. It was also a festival day and there was a parade, ice sculptures and lots of people. We then moved to the science museum and got photographs at lots of the cool exhibits. Then the ceremony, social time, diner where they had to kiss every time someone correctly guessed the answer to science trivia questions and finally dancing. The dancing was fun because after the first formal dance things got more relaxed and people started just having fun! All in all it was an amazing experience and I defiantly want to do it again.

Week 11 Flowers

This week since there were so many flowers blooming I decided I should have my photograph of the week be of a flower. I was fortunate enough that a storm blew threw and then was followed by some lightly overcast hours. It made for a great time to photograph. There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green. I also like ho the plane of focus puts the tip of the inner part of the flower, the water droplets on the petal, and a line of green leaves in focus. I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
