Wedding Photography using the Fuji X100 (as a guest)
This past weekend I was a guest, at a very good friend of mine from my rugby days, wedding. Its been a while since I was a guest at a wedding and I knew it would be a perfect opportunity to put the Fuji X100 through its paces.
Now, to set the scene slightly before looking at the images:
- I am terrified of flying (so the sight of a propeller plane did not help – the shot of the propeller is taken out through a pretty grotty tiny aeroplane’s window at 23,000 feet. I only thought people like Indiana Jones flew in planes like this these days. The Guinness helped).
- The wedding was in Cork, Ireland. There was a man hanging off the wall. Honest. You should probably ask someone from Cork why.
- It also has the darkest pub in the whole of the world near the English Market – which was a good test for the X100.
- The guests were mostly my rugby friends. So, as you can imagine it was pretty lively. Especially as it was in Cork. 6am and still singing in the bar (the last few images) were the order of the day.
- The ceremony shots were taken from my seat at the end of the pew. Mostly with my arm extended left into the aisle.
- Most of these shots were at 3200 ISO and have gone from camera through to processing very quickly. I haven’t corrected the images, just run my basic actions over them.
- Some of them may be blurry due to the effects of Guinness, Brandy, jager bombs and Gin and Bitter Lemon (rather than camera shake).
- Please remember that I was a guest so these are not professional images. There was a full time photographer in attendance also.
- Cork is Ace. Go.
