    I've been asked to do photos, and a bit of video, for a UK citizenship ceremony, which will be held at a town hall.

    Anyone done one of these? Any hints/tips?

    Thanks. Smile

    Google is your friend,

    I was asked by some parents at the school my wife works for, but the venue videoed all the ceremonies (available for purchase),

    slightly negative I'll admit. But at least gives you the basic legal format.

    I did use Google before posting on here, thanks! Tongue

    However, I am informed that photos/videos are permitted at this ceremony.

    Good news,

    I would contact the venue and ask if they have any restrictions and or advice.

    Most public venues tend to be helpful.

    Thanks. I had indeed better do this..... rather than rely on advice from a friend of the individual being 'citizenised' Smile

    The good news is that there is no restriction on taking pics/vids, despite the fact there's an official photographer in attendance. Smile

    I won't be able to decide on lens choice until I'm actually there, methinks. This is even more one-off than a wedding, so I've got to get it right. Lol! Wink

    But hopefully not too much so! Not planning to use flash (I only have the micro-flash unit anyway), so probably have to use one of my fast primes... but which one - oh, decisions, decisions! How do you wedding people cope? Tongue Grin

    Just to say all went well. There was plenty of light from 6 large skylights. I was able to shoot everything with my 14-150mm FF=28-300): stills and video. I was obliged to use the upper end of the lens rather a lot, as the subject was a considerable distance from my shooting position.

    An official photographer also took some shots which the new citizen, on inspecting them on the said tog's laptop, pronounced to be rubbish and full of basic errors! He was very happy with my efforts. So pretty chuffed. Smile

    Yes, I know....... beginner's luck etc! Grin

    Well done that man!
    Sounds as if it went better than you feared it might.

    Thanks Malc. Smile Yes it did go much better I thought, and I actually quite enjoyed doing it.

    It's certainly given me more confidence for the wedding I'm doing in early July.
