The wedding went alright. It was a small affair, which is fine.
It seemed like every 3rd person had a camera, though, so it was a little hard to get photos without getting in other's shots. I get a little confused when this happens. I don't know who the 'primary' photographer is - therefore trying to stay completely out of their way...
Anyhow - there are some pictures on my flickr account. We took quite a few, and I've not been able to look through them all and check them out. So, some more photos might appear later.
If I really am going to consider doing this for cash, I'm going to need to look into lighting alternatives, because it would of helped tremendously today. Overall, I'm not horribly impressed with the photos. I've done better. Yet, I've done worse, also.
My sister went with me today, which I enjoyed. She went with the intention of helping me take photos, which she did. But, it turned out to not be as necessary as I assumed it would be. But, we did have quite a interesting moments.
My favorite would be when we arrived at the Buddhist Temple before anyone else and had to ask a non-English speaking Monk whether we were in the right place.
"Hi, is there a wedding here at noon?" I ask politely, unassuming of how difficult of a question this really is.Right, my sister and I decided to wait outside for someone from the wedding party to arrive...
He nods wildly, smiles and cheerfully, "Cooking Class at 5!"
"Uhm," I just don't know how to respond to that. "Nooooo... Wedding... Noon?"
Anyway - On a completely and totally different subject:
In case y'all don't read Trish's blog, I just wanted to quickly say that TRISH IS PREGNANT AND IS GOING TO HAVE A BABY GIRL! AND SHE'S GOING TO NAME HER SHEILA! (Okay, I made that last part up.)
