Good Instincts
Photo-A-Day #1485

Allison tells me that whenever the photographer or videographer at a wedding stands in front of me it means I have good instincts. I think it is because they like to stand in front of any guy who has a camera as big as theirs. Not that I’d ever get in the way of a professional photographer who is being paid for a wedding or event. I just seem to always grab the spot right behind the real photographer.

Last night Allison and I went to the wedding of her cousin Beth. We had a very nice time and got to spend that time with her parents, cousins, brother and Sister-In-Law, grandparents, aunts and uncles. The wedding was a very nice one and everyone had a great time. I took a bunch of photos but need to do some processing. They are all pretty grainy because I didn’t use flash so as not to disturb anyone. When I get a moment, not sure when, I’ll have to post those photos and the pajama party ones.

Yesterday was also Free Comic book day and I picked up books at Newbury comics as well as at Wild Time Comics. Wild Time is my local comic shop but occasionally something on my pull/sub list gets missed, this stinks because I pick up my books infrequently so I end up having to go somewhere else to find the books that got missed. Yesterday was a pretty good haul too.

We left Eva with our friends T.R. and Michael, they took her to dinner and she entertained them to no end. She also, thankfully, slept very well for them. We really appreciate that they took the time to help us. Apparently it also helped them work on their wedding plans as well.

  1. […] Good Instincts Posted on May 3rd, 2009 BenSpark View commentsComments Allison has been encouraging me to think about doing some wedding photography. She says that because I end up right behind the photographers all the time means I have good instincts. I figure it means people like to walk in front of me.

    Wedding Photography is a big commitment. You may want to take a few of the seminars. Being in the right spot is important, but usually the right spot is there because the photographer has arranged it. You also have to realize you must carry a large liability policy. If you are charging and the pictures are bad or don’t come out, which is rarer non with digital, the client can actually sue you.Offering free pictures on the other hand does not open you up to any of the liabilities.

    Looks like you have a new product idea…photography…blogging…affiliate marketing…I know a lot of bloggers looking for some very cool stock images. You should be the newer, cooler Flickr!

    Completely missed free comic book day this year. Did you get anything good? How about a blog post about your haul?

    Andrew,
    You’d think I would have done that already. Thanks for the idea for today’s post.
