Wedding Photos Tips... Need-Need!!
I just upgraded my camera equipments to a Canon 40D. I'm what you may call a "serious amateur" photographer.
Although, I'm still slowly grasping the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and depth of field settings.
I only got the camera for a couple of weeks and haven't had much time to learn it all. I also purchased a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.
My niece's wedding is this weekend. It's going to be held outdoor. The ceremony is under a gazebo and reception follows indoor. The wedding starts in the late afternoon (4:30pm) 'til evening.
Here are my questions:
1- It's a small wedding (about 100 people), do I need to bring the 70-200mm zoom lens? Would it be overkill for this big event but small setting?
2- Would the 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens that came with the camera good enough?
3- I also have a fixed 50mm f/1.8 lens. Should I just bring this one?
4- Any tips on taking photos at sunset (aperture settings, etc.) at the wedding?
5- Any other tips for taking wedding photos with the Canon 40D?
Hope these questions do not make you woozy. Thanks all in advance.
