I do a lot of farmers and that sort of thing for the magazine and paper I do stuff for. Pays least but It's what I like best actually. Mike Biggs would have been a good subject - can you link to them I'd like to see them.

That is pretty neat - I do like the lighting do you take a lot of kit on those shoots, in terms of lighting?

3 speedlites....

that's it really - just on stands - 1 had a softbox, the other 2 were bare

the advantage is flexibility, I can quickly move to many locations in the shoot, giving them loads of options...

keep thinking I need Rangers - but to be honest, I've never had a shoot where I couldn't achieve what we needed with 3 speedlites... sure it'll happen sooner or later !

The sun newspaper have provided a photographer to re-stage their wedding for them. Not the greatest photos but at least they are better that the first ones.

Quote:They supposedly had a 500 budget but the photographer told them they would only be charged 100 if the photos could be used for her portfolio.

So they're hoping to get their 100 back?

They are a news agency. So I guess they might have arranged the "story" and the wedding and sold it to the Sun. Wouldn't have cost that much to get a couple of shots really.

OK this gets even more interesting :

The Sun, a national company with hundreds of pro-photographers reshoots a set of terrible wedding photos and produces three bland photos here .

Photo 1 - with a backdrop of a crumbling wall and an over-exposed dress.
Photo 2 - the groom has a plant growing out of his head
Photo 3 - people obscured , incorrect exposure, signs to be cloned , people with eyes closed.

Whatever media company produced that pile of garbage needs to take a good look in The Mirror ( excuse the pun )

I do love this comment made by a Sun Reader

"I can see why the original photographer cut off their heads in the photo's !!!!!"

How this ever made the news in a national news paper I don't know - clearly HotSpot Media have a good sales team.
