For the well-focused mama.
Woo hoO! All my scouting efforts paid off! I have booked two weddings in the last twenty-four hours; one is June 24th (a morning wedding!) and the other is July 2nd. So SO excited! |
But now I'm nervous. I'm going to do some equipment updates before the wedding. Here's what I'm gunning for right now with Ye Friendly Tax Return.
580 EX flash with the battery pack
additional backup battery for the 20D
lightsphere ii flash mod (to help avoid that "mugshot" kind of look)
either another 2GB or a 4 GB card
10 or so rolls of Ilford XP2 c-41 film
-and I'll rent a wide-angle lens too.
Oh, and a stepstool, for the group shots. Short girls struggle.
So I'll shoot all the color with my 20D and all the black-and-white with film, mainly to have a backup in case the unthinkable should happen. (please, god, no.)
I am *so* nervous, but excited! If I can get good stuff at these two weddings, plus the stuff I shot at my own wedding, I will be in great shape to launch a wedding portfolio/wedding page. Sweet!
Any advice, mamas?
