I'm back to the blogosphere- I took a long weekend and didn't even look at any blogs- I must say, it was somewhat refreshing to throw my total concentration to something else for a while. And what might that something else be?
Wedding photography- And here is the happy couple.
I photographed Bec and Ben's wedding this past weekend in Perrysburg, Ohio. Bec is Megan's first cousin, and they trusted me with doing my first full blown wedding. For those of you out there that dabble in photography- let me tell you, it was intense. I now have a real appreciation for what it is like to be a professional photographer for a day. And although I often shoot pictures of Megan and Weston, working with a bride, groom, wedding party, families, friends, and many other people throughout the day was quite a different experience.
My main worry was battery power, and believe it or not I took over 1400 pictures and my camera is still reading full power with the second set of two lithium batteries in my external battery grip. The AA's in the flash was another story- The flash was also hooked up to a battery pack around my waist. It was using 12 rechargable AA's at one time, but it still didn't last all that long. Luckily I have a 15 minute quick charger, plus I had two redundant sets of batteries- 36 AA in all.
Now, I'm back to nature. This week Megan and I'll will blog about our hike #4 to Blendon Woods, which happened in the rain, plus I'll start my backyard goldenrod series. Hopefully we can get a short metropark hike in one evening this week, because, we're not going to have all that much time left. You've guessed it, it's leaf peeping season in Maine, and we'll be heading there Saturday for a week.
