Last Saturday we met up with Emma and Mark for a chat about their upcoming wedding and a little photography session in a cotswold-esque field up in Birdlip. This area was actually attached to the back of The Royal George Hotel (we’ll be revisiting this tomorrow for a wedding with Ryan and Laura), but gave us a few options to work with. Emma and Mark are one of those couples that are so easy to work with and both myself and Mike are very much looking forward to their wedding. I like to think that our style of photography has developed over the last few months and will continue to do so in the coming months. I really felt like it all came together nicely with this couple and was pleased with the end results.
This next section comes with a disclaimer; it’s just a short bit for any camera nerds out there! Last Saturday was the first outing for my new 5D Mark III, an absolute beast of a camera that produces some brilliant results. A while ago I posted about my newly acquired 1D and the satisfying noise of the shutter…the 5D may just be stealing that spot in my heart. In addition to this is its ability to shoot to two cards at the same time – this additional level of image security will be invaluable with the many weddings to come. The jump to full frame from crop sensor certainly made the 24-70 lens feel slightly shorter than I’ve been used to but zooming with my feet got around that soon enough! My trusty 7D has now been relegated to the back-up spot, which will no doubt continue to produce some fantastic images given what an excellent piece of hardware it has shown itself to be. The 5D will be making its wedding debut tomorrow with Ryan and Laura before taking on the bulk of the remainder of our weddings this year. I’m particularly excited to try it on some higher ISO settings to see the performance differences in low-light situations. Watch this space to see some of the results!
