Although the indoor lighting was a bit of a challenge - I love that I had a chance to capture the mood and atmosphere of each spot.. I really wanted to do these beautiful places justice. Plus one of my pet hates is using flash during a ceremony (I have yet to encounter a location that requires extra lighting), and if I can capture a wedding in a cave without flash, I'm happy! For any photography types.. I was shooting inside at ISO 3600, f1.4.
Sometimes it's fantastic to work with other film/photography types since they understand the importance of giving me free reign! Welcome to my photography heaven...
At this point in the day after the sun disappeared it was COLD. And I mean wearing two jackets, thick socks and a hat and it's-still-cold kind of COLD. I could have easily shot here for another 4 hours, but I didn't want anyone to hate me so we moved on after a couple of minutes. I have to say, I could see the glow of the sunset on the snow-capped mountains in the rearview mirror as we drove off and I was slightly dying inside.
Thank you Emma and Hugh for such a fabulous, emotional wedding, and for being your lovely selves infront of the camera.
As Emma and Hugh partied into the night, Steven and I were driving back to Dunedin. A journey where we discovered that Elmer is scared of the dark - he sleeps with a dim light on at home - scared enough to sob in the back whenever we left a street-lit area. So I sat with him and held his hand until he fell asleep, the poor mite. I remember having a glow worm toy when I was little, so I'll have to get him something like that for any future night journeys. Such a sensitive soul!!
Oh, that teddy card is a Happy Pregnancy card from my mum!
Poor Steven has done a lot of the installing and updating for me on this new machine, and since its the first time he's ever used a mac it was a frustrating process! Ugh, rather him than me, I prefer the fun part of playing with software once it's all set up for me.
In the meantime I've been trying to insert (very expensive) eye-cream into Nails the dog's eyes (he has conjunctivitis). I have never come across a dog more determined to avoid this fate... two grown people, four hands between us and still the eye-cream is mostly on the carpet.
I'm glad to have Steven around on these excursions because he's like a professional wildlife guide and points out things that I would have completely missed because I'm too busy gossiping or playing with my camera. Since no one else in our group has any clue where the elusive penguins or sea lions might be hiding, we all steathily follow Steven as he comes across important clues like sea lion pee... or little penguin tracks in the sand. We are busy standing around marvelling at the pee stain and Steven is already seeking out new exciting finds. I'm sure this is some innate talent that all New Zealanders possess, much like my innate British talent of discovering half price clothing bargains in town... ahem..
