Was offered to cover a wedding by a wedding video service provider. Jumped on the opportunity. Oh boy, was I in for a surprise.
Had to cover the wedding alone. I have read before doing wedding alone is really challenging. And it was! I only had one camera body. So my strategy was to "fly" my camera on a stabilizer. 70% footages in the video are stabilizer shots. I had to choose and plan what I want to shoot.
Another challenge that I face was exposure. Especially when you are "flying" your camera from 2 different environment exposure. From outdoor to indoor. I cannot get it balanced. So I need to get one of them exposure balanced. I get my exposure balanced for the indoor environment. Still, the footages wasn't that nice as it has the "flickering" effects. Well, for that weekend, I just had to fly in one environment. Need to find out more on how I can fly in and out of two different exposure environment. Same goes to WB issues. I just switched from K option to AWB option. It worked.
Congratulations to Ashik and Hasriah. This is my personal rendition of your wedding. I enjoyed myself video-shooting your event. May you have a blissful marriage.
