Some Days, I rant.



The videographer's harsh light ruined this picture. And yes, I am pissed.

Many times during the event, I asked them ever so nicely to put their lights out when I took shots, but they never did.

So from now on, I will ask clients who I'll be working with. Definitely, I want to work with team players, like Jojo's videographer, Dino Ojerio. He was the nicest, most polite guy. Otherwise, I will NOT accept the project.

Like Chelo, if it's not fun, I am not doing it. After all, I am not doing this for the money.

. . . . .

Forgive this rant. I seldom whine or rant or complain. I am a very patient, tolerant person. But I'm also passionate about what I do. I strive perfection in my work. I work tirelessly. I'm just really pissed off right now because I can't let Grace and Matthias repeat this moment, can I?

Pin It!

10 left some love :

If you work here, you won't have a problem because most churches won't allow lights and flashes during the ceremony. They want to keep it solemn. No videographers and photographers running around the altar.

The picture, in fairness, came out great like that of a sunset.

very understandable, ai. these moments happen once in a lifetime and you, as photographer, want to capture them in their essence -- not in harsh light.

i agree with tiris though. with what you had to work with, this photo came out beautiful!

That's why I would want just a photographer during my day. And it will be you, Ai.

My friends who will take the video can just stay behind hehehe

I know, Chel. I don't get it why they had to use such bright lights. I know of videographers who do not use that much light.

You are right, money isn't everything. And I've never been motivated by money.

Yes, Dino really is buotan and respectful of other people who are working with him. And what amazing work he does!

Thank you, Chel. :)

That should be the case, T. I think lights and flashes are really disrespectful during Mass. That's supposed to be very sacred and solemn.

Many churches here are already strict. They no longer allow photographers and videographers on the altar.

Thank you, Jops. If you say this is beautiful, then I feel better. :)

I noticed sever times during the wedding and reception how you'd throw the video guys dagger looks.

They should learn how to give the official photog the floor.
