    I brought my camera to a wedding

    Two cameras actually, and Kodak NC400 and HP5. The result is now on flickr. I was not a official photographer, but through the day people started to look at me as such. You know how it is.

    Anyway, being fairly amateurish, I would very much appreciate if anyone with a spare minute would take a look and share their thoughts. What could have been done better?

    Thanks!

    Erik,

    Is log sawing at weddings a Swedish tradition?

    No, I had not seen it before. The wedding took place in Germany, in Brandenburg.

    Eric,these look very nice,all have very natural expressions,its fairly easy to flick through the pictures.When I was doing weddings in the Late 70"S to mid 80's we always bunch people up in silly groups and forced posses . You have follewed a story line which is important an taken many infocus well exposed frames . The move to black & white is abrupt and should be integrated better. To my impression I is the kind of casaul wedding pictures I'd buy for my daughters wedding. I think their great.

    Weddings are dangerous... avoid at all costs.

    Swedish and German.....

    I like the series as a whole, well done, good work, congrad's !
    It is sometimes easier to be the second photographer, so you can photograph more relaxed.

    Some remarks: you could have used a little fill-in flash at times and not all photo's are as sharp as they could/should have been.
    And watch the WB in the shadows !
    What gear have you been using ? Camera's, lenses ?

    The only thing worse than being the groom at a wedding is being the photographer... People have expectations... tight little groups of people posing for the camera.... These pictures are better.... I would not have guessed it was a wedding... looked like a friendly family gathering.

    You achieved "story telling" greatness. Every good photo is supposed to tell a story and all of yours did. Often things get lost "posing" and you kept it fresh. Bravo!
