Before my first weddings this year got on their way, I had the chance for some experiments in March. As a kind of a warm-up for the wedding season I went to shoot Anne and Hanna in the Taunus woods. Hanna is a remarkable make-up artist (feel free to contact me if you need her services) and this time she offered something beyond a regular make-up - it was supposed to be something extraordinary.
With us all the time was my colleague Oli Lelke, wedding photographer from Alzenau (see photo), who not only got some nice shots himself, but who also did some essential work serving as "human light stand". Also on board was the little Olympus E-P3 - often behind a 25mm Voigtlander F0.95 and so technically a bit more fancy than last time. What surprised me here is that this little cam found it's way into my hands more often than the large DSLRs which I also carried in my luggage.
Speaking of luggage - again I got to pack my bags tonite. Because tomorrow I'm going to Ireland for the wedding of Caitriona and Paudie in Ennis, in Ireland's beautiful West. So the evening will remain exciting because it has not yet been conclusively solved how to fit an even rudimentary PhotoBooth into the meager baggage allowance of the Lufthansa.
One last thing...The day was in the woods made it once more clear that the importance of well-maintained parks for a rich variety of photos generally is overestimated. ;-)
