| p.2 #4 · shooting with uncle bobs. |
i'm gonna be shooting a wedding in a couple weeks time with advanced notice that there are uncle bobs. it just so happens that two of the uncle bobs are the closest and best friends of the families getting married. i've told my concerns to the family who's told me that they're ask the GM to announce something to prevent it. anything else you would do ?
i have feet.
i would use them to move left/right/forward/back/other to avoid obstacles that may happen to fall into my path.
i have a brain.
i would use it to evaluate a situation, and determine a course of action.
i have a mama & daddy who raised me right.
they taught me that i'm not the center of the universe.
they taught me to be empathetic, and self-aware, and accountable to myself.
they taught me to be polite, and charming, and to face adversity not with an eff-you-guys, pissy attitude, but instead as a problem-solver.
my advice for "dealing with uncle bobs" is to quit assuming that guests with camera are the enemy. quit making excuses and blaming your poor photography on some marginal annoyance.
start practicing your craft, adapting to challenges, and appreciating the experiences & perspective of other people instead of viewing them as some inconsequential bastards standing between you and the making your oh-so-important art.

This is good! I usually get a minimum of 4-10 UBs at EVERY Indian and Nigerian wedding. You just have to work with it.
