Photos from a Wedding Shower

A few poses are good, but I really prefer candids and unconventional shots. They reveal so much more! My best friend, Sara’s daughter is getting married, and I’m photographing the wedding! These are just shots of her and her daughters (plus a clown I thought was cute). Yes, I will be retouching where necessary for the final products, and there will be no red eyes! I love the posed shot of Sara and her girls near the end. The last two photos of Lindsey are from my favorite of the whole batch. First I softened it, then I took it to B&W.

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.


  • My sister’s baby shower is this weekend. I’ll carry the camera with me, of course, and if I can make it through the entire afternoon without a single firing of the flash, I’ll consider it a great success. I’m just growing to hate it more and more no matter what sort of red-eye reduction, time delay, or lighting angling the camera claims to offer. We shall see!


  • Yeah. I didn’t take my tripod or my larger flash. I have a flash from my 35mm that works on the XTi, but I was having some lagging issues. I only tried it once, so it’s going to take a little more tweaking to figure out if it’s a compatibility issue. I love that you can angle the flash in any direction for awesome lighting control.


  • Looks like you had fun taking pics!
    I’ve been playing with my settings to avoid using a flash. Have you tried much of that yet with your Canon? I got a great book called “Understanding Exposure” and am working through all the details of it to try to learn a few new things. It has already done wonders for me in figuring out how to avoid a flash. I’ve managed to come up with settings for every single picture, so far, even indoors, that allowed me to get sufficient light without using a flash and then having to deal with the red eyes or harsh shadows or glares it leaves behind.
    Keep up the good work!
