My son and his wife (they married before he deployed), had their wedding on Saturday. I doubt he will forget his anniversary. Pop Pop's (that's what Jonathon calls me) main duty for the day was to keep track of the little guy. Both parents and his sister were in the wedding. It wasn't that hard as his dad calls him "Captain Velcro", especially when surrounded by strangers. Obviously I couldn't do a lot of photography with the little guy in my arms, so "She..." 's sister took over. Didn't have much time to brief her on the camera and flash so there were some that were pretty dark. She used both cameras and I was surprised that the ones from the Fuji recovered better in PP than the Nikon. I have to look at the settings??

Anyway here is a link to the shots we did get. Brian and Michelle's Big Day

I don't have any images with me to post on the page, so you will have to jump out to the gallery.

Jonathon went with the baby sitter after we ate, so "Pop Pop" had a good time, or at least that's what I was told the next morning, my memory of the rest of the evening is a bit vague. I might have a chemically induce case of Alchiemer's.

I was able to function just fine. It's been a while since I partied like that, but I still remember the strategies to get through the next day. Kory on the other hand is a late bloomer and was a bit squinty eyed the next morning. Of course Brian had 4 years at LeMoyne College and an overlapping 6 years with the Marines. Training put to good use! OD

Great pics Cliff, It's hard to take part in the event and try to photograph it as well. When I got married last year I spent most of the day with my D300 in my hand, my daughter took shots of the wife and I but I wanted to take shots of the party so I kept taking the camera off my daughter.( She loved the D300 as well and said if I get tired of it she would gladly take it off my hands - KIDS !!!! LOL)

Thanks Stan, I have to watch my sister-in-law, she is partial to the D200. I was more in-tuned to the party aspect. Most of the pictures I took were at the church during the photography session. I had Captain Velcro for most of the event, not that I minded that. OD

I have been playing with some of the shots from last weekend. The first is a shot of "She..." I cropped it from a picture of her and her son. Did a masked Gaussian blur treatment and then a desaturation for mono conversion. A nice vignette and voila. Attached File  200907070069.jpg   184.27KB   1 downloads These two shots I put together to slide into my coffee mug. It has a clear casing with a removable bottom. I change out pictures of the Grandkids reqularly. Printed these two shots together. Attached File  ppwkids.jpg   371.21KB   0 downloads OD

Nice job... and "she" will be happy with this one!

Thanks, Dennis.
