03/11/07: Another Wedding Lesson Learned...

I've worked well over 120 weddings since 1985 -- and I always seem to learn a new lesson each time I shoot a wedding. Yesterday was no exception! :)

I use Lowepro lens cases to carry my lenses on my belt when I'm shooting a wedding. (see picture below for image of a Lowepro case from B&H)



The wedding I shot yesterday was in a fairly small church but I shot it without an assistant so I had to move around quite a bit during the ceremony to capture the shots I wanted / needed to get. Notice the zippers on the case? Those zippers make noise when attached to a fast-moving photographer in a quiet church. Solution? Duct-tape? Nah...too sticky!! Electrical tape!! Of course! A small piece of electrical tape wrapped around the zipper pull will deaden the noise of the zipper! :)
