Default Wedding photos with the HS-10

I had the opportunity to see what it was like to shoot a wedding. I took the HS-10 and I think it did well. I was going to bring the Oly but left it at the last minute. I can tell you this much: I would NOT want to do this for a living! I feel that while these are decent, they are by no means professional grade photos and I would not even attempt to say they were. Indoor was crazy when it was daylight but when the sun went down, it was total chaos! P&S flash bombs going off, photog strobes & flashes, DJ lights... YIKES! PLENTY of light, all of bad. I did attempt a few but they sucked soooooo bad. Outdoor shots were taken about 10 feet to the left of the photog and I thought they came out better than average.















This was a test shot. Handheld, racked out across a crowded room about 75-80 feet away. This is right OOC. No PP.

In the indoor the hs10 does not seem to be in a it's element. The low light condition with people moving it a bit much for the small sensor. The outdoor picts look good.

That second group shot looks great - except for them looking at the other photographer. I agree - for indoor work it's still a ways to go. But the colors and sharpness outdoors really look great!

Thanks, John. To be sure, the event was touted as being ALL outdoors and that's why I left the Oly at home. But the heat & humidity put the old kibosh to those plans! I did manage to get a few indoors that were tolerable.

Thanks for looking!

Nothing to be disappointed in, Gary-

I think that the HS-10 did well. The indoor photos were on the down side only due to the lack of a good external flash. All you had to work with was the HS-10's built-in flash unit. Had you had taken the E-620 and the FL-36 flash, the outcome would have been entirely different. So, no, I would not feel let down at all.
