Photography Job No.2

June 27, 2007 | Author: | In: Everyday Life, Photography

So you’re thinking why some of my anime episode posts are a bit behind? Normally I have the weekends to blog anime shows but last Saturday I had to head out for a photography job. Yep, Job No.2!! Another wedding to attend to and take photos, and get paid for it. Anyway, like last time, these photos are not edited except for auto-leveling in Photoshop.

Long Hummer is LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG. When I was about to leave for the church, the Hummer just pulled up and OMFG was I surprised. Plus how awesome is it? I didn’t really expect to see something like this in Sydney. When I spoke to the bride’s father at the reception, he wasn’t too happy about his daughter wanting a stretch Hummer, but he said it’s her wedding. Personally I think it’s awesome and totally different.

At the church, whilst waiting for the bride and groom, the groom turned up first and this is what he arrived in. A Ford Mustang (well pretty sure it is, I’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to American muscle cars). But damn, when I heard this thing leave, I creamed my pants.

The reception was held at the Stamford Grand in North Ryde. My first time being there and it was a very nice place. Also when I happened to be sitting in the lobby taking a break, a large group of Korean students came in. My boss and I ended up talking to one of the teachers who was sitting near us and that’s how we found out. So very nice looking girls I must say, such a shame I couldn’t take photos of them, lol.

Now for just some random photos:

Overall another enjoyable day, but this one was only a 10 hour job instead of a 13 hour job. Also it was the first time I ever attended a traditional wedding, with the whole walking down the aisle etc. Although I’ll probably get to see more of them eventually, even my friends weddings. The only downside to that night was that they forgot to give us a place to sit down and rest and supply us dinner, but I did manage to get a plate of food.

In the last hour all the little kids wanted me to take photos of them sliding on the floor and some even wanting me to show them the photos I took. Just to let you know, I’m not really that good when it comes to talking to kids, let alone being able to hear them since they speak so soft. Besides the things I learnt with photography, there is still things I need to learn, and that is being able to interact with people more. Throughout the day, everyone was calling out my name to take photos or to simply talk, I managed fine but to me I ended up listening more than actually talking. But still, it was good practice.

So now that I have a full time job will I continue on with the photography? Hell yes!! The boss was surprised I found a job so soon since it wasn’t that long since the last photography job but he says he’ll still call me if he needs me. But of course, that depends on the primary job. But since he knows I’m a web developer, he might ask me to do a website for him, which I don’t mind, once my skills are leveled up. Also as a good note, my legs and arms didn’t hurt as much as the first time, but damn walking upstairs was still painful.

Lol, you creamed your pants…nice expression. I have noticed a lot more people driving away i hummers now rather than limos, I attended my cousins wedding where everyone went away in hummers. Never really liked how big the cars are and the gas mileage you get. Too bad you couldn’t take pics of the Korean girls ;p, some of them are pretty hot. The license plate on the hummer, holywd…Hollywood…holy wood? Whats up with the table with the manikins wearing the bride and groom clothes, first time I seen that.

AS: Well it was only for a wedding. Plus it’s something you don’t see often here in Australia. The table setup was a display at the Stramford Grand. It’s just advertising about having your reception there.

alafista: It is a lot of fun. I meet many people and it’s interesting hearing the stories they have to say.

AOforever1: A double duty? Damn, I don’t think I could handle doing an entire weekend. True, I need to get along with kids more.

megami: It was a nice wedding, but a very simple one at that. Later on down the track I think I’ll be seeing much more extravagant weddings, e.g Greek weddings.

Walking upstairs – 1 month’s worth of exercise :D

Why didn’t you ask if you could take pictures of the girls?! WHY!
