Welcome! (Heck, you've probably been reading this forum longer than I have.) Let's see a few from last weekend!
And hoo, wee, the anthem that opens on your site is unconventional for weddings. Interesting, and it certainly conveys a different brand image. Don't let people talk you out of it just because it's unusual.
I'm going through a rebranding right now, but yeah, I try to be different. The wedding market in Montreal is not as competitive as Western Canada, and definitely less competitive than anywhere in the states. There's definitely room for more wedding photogs, especially those who do (or try to do) things differently. I'm 25, a medical school dropout, so I definitely chose this profession. I love it, and I love working with people. Hopefully it'll prove useful!
Here are some of the shots I feel comfortable sharing. I was overall happy with the result, but will not do weddings again until I've switched systems. My K5 and limited primes have served me well in the studios, but Pentax has yet to get their shit together regarding a FF body and their AF system is the worse on the planet. The AF miss on some low-light shots made me livid when I saw the RAW open on my U3011.
I'm selling all my gear and switching to the D800, D700 as backup, 70-200VRII, 24-70 and 14-24 in January. I hope by then the D800 AF issues will be resolved. Eventually I want to add three 1.8G primes, the 85, 28 and 50. I was a proud Pentaxian for five years and the K5's DR is not to be frowned upon, but if I am to gain more experience and shoot more weddings, I need a more robust AF system. Plus, FF will grant me more DoF, more pixel real estate should I need to crop and those viewfinders... ohh those big, bright viewfinders... what's not to love?
12. AF missed... I was livid. I could try Topaz InFocus or FocusMagic, but not sure whether it could help.
Thanks for looking!
