    Is it possible your just missing your focus? At 1.2 there isn't that much room for error. If your on 3200 film, and you can manage a 1/2000 shutter, why not lower the shutter and stop down your aperture giving you some more depth of field?

    i know i could, but i have shot 1000's of photos on f1.2 and they are all good...and to be fair the depth of field at that distance is still enough to have the whole car in focus...so it doesnt bother em....

    I'll bet that the problem here is that your focussing screen is out of whack a little bit.

    See if it moves around if you touch it (WITH GLOVES) or the like

    I feel like I can do it fine. Not amazing compared to photographers standards but I feel like I can make her happy. I just have to figure out what to ask for in terms of payment. She wants me to be there all day, that means a ton of time editing photos, buying prints and everything else

    do it for fuck all. I did my first wedding for $350.

    That means theres way less pressure, and if you fuck it up you don't feel as bad because they got a good deal out of it anyway.
    Plus that way even if your photos are amazing, your next wedding you can charge the standard $1500+

    you'll learn so much from you're first wedding. you gotta be ready to think fast and adapt to very fast changing situations...

    you better know your camera and light in and out because for example, if the weather of the wedding is a beautiful clear sunny day, that usually means harsh ugly direct sunlight and ugly photos. are you ready for that? do you know how to deal with that?

    Find shade or put the sun behind them and use fill flash? It depends what shots ur doing. If it's staged shots like family stuff it's easier. I will learn that's for sure

    Have my first solo wedding in July. I would recommend assisting with one first if you can.
    I think wedding photography takes a lot of repetition to know how to get the shots the bride and family will want. The guy I assist for has it down to a science.
    I've never met a pro wedding photog who wasn't a pretentious jack ass.
    as for the harsh lighting, remote off camera flash is your best friend.

    also, my office was ran sacked and my 7d and few lenses got taken. Still waiting on insurance cover it, until then I can only shoot film. will post some ish soon,

    Hear hear^

    An assistant to follow you round with an off camera flash with a large softbox attached is good for creating even soft fill flash. Just pray you get an overcast day and shoot available light without flash. Always looks better in my opinion. I'm developping a bit of a style of using only available light even in my work, and only using flash if I'm forced to work in a very very dark environment.

    Oh and most photographers are cunts, that's all just part of the industry, it's so competitive especially these days.

    had an impromptu photoshoot for my work.... what a nightmare.
    everything was last minute. even the lighting, i found those last minute.
    half of the "models" were last minute,
    the one proper makeup artist just so happens to be one of my coworkers gf who thought to come by with him... she helped last minute


    lol
