Wedding Remote Camera was set up
When I spoke with church wedding coordinator, I was told that no photography allowed during ceremony. I immediately sense that some other wedding photographer really messed up the whole ceremony before. I told wedding coordinator that I won’t be using any flashes and will not be near the alter area at all (for catholic weddings, I never use flash anyways). I also told her that two of my camera have silent shutter mode. Anyways, I was oked by the church and decided to primary use long glasses – 70-200mm and 300mm lens (400mm would be over kill). 300mm lens was used in upper balcony area
On a wedding day I decided to get there hours before the ceremony and setup a remote camera. Kind of like soccer remotes behind the goal or baseball home plate. I wanted to deliver photos in different angles (plus I didn’t want photos all in backs) . For this set up, I used 5D Mark II (full frame body) with 240-105 lens. My aperture was at F4 which will give plenty of depth of field. I knew bride & groom mostly be sitting in one spot and prefocused where the main action’s gonna be. For bride & groom kiss and exchange rings etc, I knew I can take photos from the back of the church because they would be standing at the alter area and looking at each other. Nothing too technical and set up really too less than 15 min. All triggered by pocket wizard (multimax).
