Christina and Bibek's Weddings

August 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Christina and Bebek had two weddings on the same day, the first being Anglican and the second a traditional Hindu ceremony. On one of the hottest days of the year the gloominess of the church was most welcome but left me regretting my lack of investment in a faster zoom lens - lack of light in churches means high ISO settings, slow shutter speeds and wide open apertures - you really need the (Canon) 70-200mm 2.8L IS, or equivalent, for shooting in this environment.  I don't have this lens but do have the 100mm 2.8 prime macro lens, which is what I actually used for most of the interior shots - my F4 zoom lens just wasn't cutting it - along with my go-to 24-70mm 2.8 L Canon wonder lens.

The Hindu ceremony was better lit but the positioning was similar to a dramatic performance on a pros arch stage. I had to move around, trying to capture a variety of angles and focus on the detail entailed in the ceremony.

It was a joyous day. Christina and Bibek wanted a discrete, reportage style of photography and it was a pleasure to document their special day.
