Around June of this year, I purchased the new Canon 5D mark II SLR camera. This was the first of the Canon professional range to come out with ‘Live View’. Live view now gives the professional ‘still’ photographer, the ability to capture high definition video footage during a wedding while at the same time capture traditional photographs.
Very quickly I realised that as a professional photographer, I won’t have long before my customers and their wedding guests realise that a professional photographer can take video as well as still photographs. Why is this important to know? Well I believe that for a short time I have an ability to take very candid video footage because my wedding clients would not be expecting me to take video from my normal looking professional SLR camera. This of course allows me to capture and create something very special and unique for my wedding couples.
Paul & Kelly got married on the 26th of September at the Balmoral Beach rotanda. Photographs were taken around Balmoral Beach then a quick stop over at the Sydney Opera House for some more wedding photographs. Their reception was at Bavarian Beer Cafe at Fox Studios.
I wanted to surprise Paul & Kelly by capturing some footage of their reception and add it into their wedding slide show. Paul & Kelly only expected to see their wedding photographs that I captured for them but were so excited and surprised when they saw actual video footage of the reception as well.
Paul & Kelly have been very kind to allow me to share their wedding slide show on the Sarhn McArthur Photography Facebook profile.
Thank you Paul & Kelly.
As a wedding photographer I am always looking for new products and ideas that will benefit wedding couples…. and as a business owner I am always looking for new technology that not only improves my business but also helps my clients.
I am really proud to announce a new ‘arm’ of my photographic business. Sarhn McArthur Photography can now offer all wedding couples (even those who are not using Sarhn McArthur Photography as a photographer) the ability to send thank you cards from the comfort of their lounge room with their computer.
No they are not E-Cards but real cards! People can now go online and select from thousands of pre designed cards or even upload and design their own card (using a wedding photograph for example).
Once you have selected your card front, selected a font, typed your personal message on the inside, then press send on the computer screen; Australia Post will print and send your card to anywhere in the world (and you didn’t have to leave the lounge room).
Want to try sending a card for free??
I am offering anyone who leaves a comment on this post the opportunity to have a free gift account for two weeks. I will even give you enough funds to send a couple of free cards to give it a go.**
Simply leave a comment and make sure you include a correct email address (will not be published). I will then email you back all the details which will include your username and password to access your free gift account.
This is opened to anyone, anywhere in the world (you don’t even have to be getting married). I am also happy to make this offer available to any photographers reading this post (I know there are a couple of you J ).
Hope you enjoy this new technology as much as I do!
** Offer is only for a limited time.
