A Fisheye Wedding

no images were found

Let me say up front, that my hat is off you those who shoot weddings for a living. You don’t get a second chance.

So as a non wedding photographer photographer I felt no pressure, knowing full-well that capturing the bride and groom’s big day was in the capable hands of a real wedding photographer, I thought I’d have some fun. I threw my fisheye lens on my D700 and shot wildly throughout the night.

Of the two hundred or so exposures I shot, I processed a few that I thought captured the essence of the big day.

The lead image (above) is my favorite. The rest follow.

Party time. The band wasn’t your traditional wedding band. They were a show band – Motown Review.

They covered Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, The Supremes, and countless other classic acts.

Good times. Good times.

  1. These look great Bob! Even though you were the second shooter, you still told a story here, and that’s what it’s all about. It’s tough doing weddings, but we’ve been having a lot of fun doing it.

  2. Different set from usual, but good to see something different. I was in the same situation recently and quite enjoyed the experience, however, there is NO WAY I’d do it as a job!

  3. Again, great black and white work. My favorite of all of them is the bride in the limo. That one is true fine art!!
