30 Nov 2013 – Roi & Steph’s Wedding
I had promised myself earlier this week that I would attach a 100mm lens to the Sony A7r and not remove it for a week. This promise became difficult to keep as Steph’s wedding was on Saturday morning and a 100mm lens would not be ideal for most of the shots I wanted to take! Well, I kept my promise…sort of. The 100mm lens never left the A7r but I did bring along the E-M1 with the Panasonic Leica 25mm attached 😛 That being said, I’m still quite pleased with how most of the longer focal length shots turned out! Shooting with a telephoto lens was certainly an interesting experience and actually quite an enjoyable one. I felt that the main challenge was ensuring that the shots continued to be interesting, especially since they were usually isolated. Composing each photograph on the 100mm was far more difficult than say 50mm. Hopefully I didn’t do too badly.
It was an awesome wedding and I wish Steph and Roi all the best in their future ahead. Here are the photos!
Kids at weddings make for awesome subjects =) And the telephoto lens meant that I didn’t have to get too close to take this which, in turn, made it easier to snap these incognito
