    This set has been at least two months in the making. Finally completed after many sidetracks.

    The full blog post without my dribble. Enjoy.

    Still a bit undecided on the use of storyboard. It saves a lot of time but .. hmm.

    A massive wedding deserves a massive post. Even with storyboard, it still took a full day to put together.

    I dunno, I think my favourites were #eleventy-million, #eleventy-million-and-seven, and #1.3987x(10^13)

    Cool set, but maybe a little too massive for one post :Pirate:

    Had nothing to do for a few hours during a transit in HKIA in May. So I walked around and snapped random things. Nothing overly special. Also pushed the shit out of the PP for fun.

    Avalon beach sunrise from today. Average results. Sunrise was actually rather lovely. So it must be my lack of skill.

    All apart from one were taken with the 20-35mm and D700. Some were taken with B+W 10-stopper, while others had a GND8 applied as well. Really hating my tripod. Doesn't go low enough. Might get a RRS bracket soon.

    Having difficulty composing with an interesting/worthy foreground. Finding I'm doing the same shit over and over. Need some new inspiration/mojo. Not good with contrasting dynamic ranges as I don't HDR nor know my way around PS.

    I've re-done entire sets of photos for clients who wanted more photos (I have a habit of deleting them as I edit), so I'm used to it. And it's never a pleasant experience, going through photos taken weeks/months ago because there are so many technical errors with each exposure. But it is a great gauge/yardstick of how much one has progressed (or not).

    Taken in October 2010, as a result of re-populating my new blog, I redid this particular set. I culled like hell and ended up with less than a fifth of what I had originally delivered. Ouch.

    Aperture priority mode. Yuck!

    What was your main gripe with using Av mdoe back in Oct '10?

    The ones that worked in your above set, worked well. Not user error for the others? :p

    Joke aside, I have found that my first wedding shoot was partly soured with a large number of potentially great shots ruined by bad underexposure on both of my 5D 1's. Granted, the particular location was tricky, but is this also something along the lines of what you are referring to when using this mode?

    AV mode means the exposures are all different. A lot were horribly underexposed. Primarily user error of course. Wrong metering. Wrong everything.

    Manual takes less effort :D
    Especially when I'm shooting strong backlit scenes most of the time.

    Old set re-edited - some more from my Canon days. Went with a more cooked preset for fun. Even add some grain ;)

    Kinda glad trash the dress has died. Never was a fan of it.

    Looks like I had no clue how to frame in landscape.
