Indian Wedding

Hi, been a while since I last posted, but here's something you may not see everyday on here. A Sikh wedding which I attended was over Easter weekend, could help but take a few pictures.

Re: Indian Wedding

I bet the family were pleased with your fabulous coverage, Raj.

I had the honour of being official photographer to Michael & Zelinda's Indian Wedding (2002)

Note: Just uploaded a few to be taken down later.

Edit: Images shot with Nikon D70 (state of the art at the time) No way do they compare with the superb quality of yours.

Re: Indian Wedding

Hi Mark, unfortunately I wasn't the official photographer as such, they had another person for that but I thought I'd take a few for myself.

I'm pretty happy with that though as a relative it let me enjoy the wedding instead.

You have some very good photos there yourself, the Nikon D70 obviously isn't no slouch in your hands, I really like number 1.

Re: Indian Wedding

Hi raj, A relative always has the advantage over an official photographer, the relative usually elicits warmer, more natural smiles and the looks you got were certainly that.
But I can appreciate that you were there to enjoy, not to be spending the whole day shooting pictures.

I used the Panaleica 25mm and Oly 45mm for these and with the pace of events, there's often not enough time to go and change lenses sometimes its easier to just pick up another camera!

Re: Indian Wedding

A real feast of colour and expertly shot. You may not have been the official photographer but you easily could have been!

Re: Indian Wedding

These are fantastic pictures. I've always loved the vibrancy and colour of India on my all too brief visits there. It's warming to see it over here as well. A great memory of what was obviously a wonderful occasion.
