Eyal's kids went to Goddard for preschool. This woman was one of the teachers there. She is getting married and asked Eyal to shoot her engagement photos. I shot second and this was the best one I got. I tried something new and was in Single servo AF mode since I was shooting portraits. This, on top of the fact that the light was terrible, yielded pretty bad results. Most of my pictures were fuzzy. Thankfully, Eyal came through on this one and most of what we are sending to them are from his camera. I guess my contribution to this shoot was mostly positioning. Not my finest moment here but I'm learning and that's why we don't charge the big bucks!
Here's the funniest thing about today and the reason I had to use a picture from a shoot, which I normally wouldn't do. Eyal and I got back from the shoot and I put my camera on my desk to upload the pics to my computer. I always zip my bag back up so that if it's picked up, things won't fall out and break.
We went up to the lake with Eyal and his family for the night. Eyal wanted me to take pictures of Guy skiing and himself wakeboarding. Since I always have my camera with me I thought, no problem. You can probably put it all together by now but I'll spell it out for you any way. I went off to pack my clothes and KC did his usual, get the electronics together. I asked him if he'd grabbed my camera bag, neglecting to tell him the camera wasn't in it. He didn't notice the weight difference since he put my laptop in it. Yes, the camera was right next to the laptop but it was dark and he was in a hurry.
We got to the lake and I grabbed my bag. The first thing I noticed was the weight. Oops! Oh well, I figured I'd just have to shoot Eyal and Guy with Eyal's Canon. Once the settings are put right, it's just a matter of framing and pressing the shutter button. That's the same no matter what camera you use.
Turns out Eyal, thinking that I'd certainly have my camera with me, left his home! We were relegated to KC's P&S for the afternoon and the whole of the next day. We spent the entire time saying, "That's a nice shot! Click!"
