I am preparing for a wedding tomorrow. And as always, I am pumped. Weddings are fun, and while shooting them takes a lot of talent, effort and experience, it is also very rewarding.
So what am I doing tonight? I am making lists. List of:
- The shots I want.
- The addresses and times.
- Names and phone numbers.
- The equipment I need. Including spares for everything!
- Events specific to this culture (all weddings have specific cultural traditions – knowing them helps!)
Preparation is half the secret of success. Tip: ensure that your car is in good shape and full of fuel, and that you have cash for parking meters, etc.
I’ll share a little more of the success factors in the next weeks. But now – packing my bags, packing the car, preparing for an all-day shoot. Life’s good when you can do all day what you enjoy!
