Thierry and Juliette's Wedding
This is the second of three parts featuring the pictures I took during
Thierry and Juliette's wedding.
September 19th, 2004
As with the first roll, the full-size pictures are available as a
tar archive (UNIX), or as a
zip file (Windows). I have cropped a few
pictures, so you may also want to download a tar archive of the
original pictures, before any modification.
Continuing my fascinating monologue with myself...
Given the difficult shooting conditions, in particular the hard light
and the lack of large shaded areas where it would have been easier to
shoot the portraits, selecting the right exposure was more difficult
than usual. You'll often see some flare as well, which could have been
avoided with a hood. Nevertheless, these pictures came as a pleasant
surprise to me. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
I learnt a lot that day. Looking at the results, I have decided to buy
a hood, one of the cheapest and lightest pieces of photography
equipment. This will help me avoiding that flare... And make my camera
even more intimidating, I suppose.
Please send bribes by cash to Joel Brobecker if you would like any
picture to be removed from these pages. For your convenience, I also
accept checks, but they should be made payable to Nguyen Thanh Hoai,
my Vietnamese name, so that Revenue Canada may not trace it. Thank you
There is an interesting story behind this picture.
Karin had this amazing little remote control that allowed her to trigger
her camera remotely, via infrared. Coincidently, the camera she was using,
a Canon Elan II, is very close to the one I am using, the Elan 7. When
we tried to see if her remote control was compatible with my camera,
we were delighted to discover that it was! When we each setup our
cameras for that group picture, we had two cameras standing side by side
on two tripods, both ready to obey the remote trigger. So we smiled,
Karin pressed the button, and both camera answered the call! I suppose
you have to be a photography nerd to find this humorous, but it was in
fact quite neat.
Back to me, for the last shot|
Horizon not horizontal... I'll pretend Juliette took it.
