Look at the one with the kids playing ..great but the couple in the background are having an argument ....crop them out. Either should have zoomed in or had enough MP to crop.
You just make life difficult if you have to use primes because the camera sensitivity is low and you only have 20mp to work with.
Hmm, I've looked at her website and some of the pictures are a compositional mess, whilst others have caught the subjects off-guard with some unflattering expressions and body language. She has also captured some fun moments and natural spontaneity. I guess this is the nature of reportage style wedding shoots and only the happy couple can say if they prefer this to a more traditional posed set of photographs.

You make an interesting point about needing a small aperture to get entire groups in focus and I would guess that f11 would be a safe bet if using a full frame camera. Of course, a Micro Four Thirds camera would give the same DOF at f5.6 and claw back two stops of the bigger camera's high ISO advantage.... Just saying.

Re: SRS wedding workshop march 2017

Well Zukio you have gone up in my estimation with your comments on her work ..spot on .
But you have to ask do you want that "style" associated with your business ?
To me 80% of whats in that gallery is rubbish,I would not put it on my website . No I would not take it in the first place and I would have difficulty finding 1 or 2 that you could put in for a MPA/BIPP panel.
But I find it interesting how what I feel is a bad choice of equipment has affected her work.
If SRS or she is reading this I am sure she is glad I did not turn up at the seminar.
Having said that photography is for the photographer and if they enjoy and think is good I am happy. If an instamatic floats your boat that's fine .

What about the 4/3rds 14-35 and 35-100 - both F2? Big beasts, but superb quality fully open.

Re: SRS wedding workshop march 2017

It’s an ‘advert’ for a wedding course by the highly regarded John Pugh. Cameras are just light boxes with glass. Nothing to get hung up about even if he chose a mahogany, brass and glass light contraption.
Take it or leave it. Thought you’d be interested.

Steve, I think you mean Robert Pugh. I've previously attended one of his Olympus days. Interesting to see he is now working with Sony, I wonder if he has severed ties with Olympus or if he has a foot in each camp?

Re: SRS wedding workshop march 2017

When I consider a course I always look at the photographers work and if I see basic mistakes like disconnected hand syndrome I just hang on to my money..to cold in Carlisle anyway.

I did indeed John, I must have been thinking of someone else I know when I was bashing the keys. I'm aware there's a sort of turf war with camera brands, more pixels, more buttons, etc. End of the day they all do the same thing, the real difference is in the imagination of the user.

I've been on a number of courses, the main benefit for me was the contacts I made, plus a good day out. Typically the tutor will show his portfolio and then send you forth to multiply. Genesis 1:1-31
