    Now, this guy really lost $15000 photography equipment

    Is this the way wedding photographers take pictures? Both camera and the subject moving, shooting away pictures indoors on flash?!

    The guy was lucky he didn't crack his head on the edge of that marble fountain.Can't imagine why he was "in their face" like that.He started with a 70-200.I can't tell what lens he switched to when they started moving.

    PMSL, although it would have been a real scream with Nikon equipment.

    What is it with weddings?....



    And this one is very funny... or at least the bride thinks so...

    Ditto.

    It's not the tog's fault - people commissioned him to do it. But that level of invasiveness at what's meant to be a deeply personal and presumably moving ceremony, just says something about societal priorities in this early part of the 21st century.

    Wow. I'm speechless (and it's not often that happens!). In all seriousness, if he'd been using 1D series cameras and one of the weather-sealed versions of the 70-200/2.8 then the camera and lens would probably have been just fine. I'm afraid that I personally wouldn't give him many points out of 10 for technique though (swimming or photography!)

    The flash must recharge pretty quick, don't know the point of taking so many pics and not much care over composure. The actions of some people are amazing.

    Poor guy. That's why, if you are going to do weddings, have an assistant nearby to spot you.

    Oh, dear, not here.
    This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by JC Productions.
    But man, those other ones were a hoot. The Engineer even got out of bed to watch them.

    Kit,

    The Engineer will certainly get out of bed to watch this one. I haven't laughed so much in years.




    This one is quite cute, and his declaration is very funny.

    We enjoyed both of those, too, but especially the funny weddings one. Why, I don't know, as slapstick isn't our general preference, but seeing all those guys falling over at the ultimate moment was something to giggle at. And it was nearly all guys, too.

    Perhaps they suddenly realised what they were about to do!

    I'm reminded of a funny story I heard the other day ...

    "There was this chap who asked his girlfriend to marry him. She said no. So he did whatever he wanted - dressed however he wanted - slept with whoever he wanted ... and lived happily ever after"

    This one is why you should never become a wedding photographer



    I found another copy of the original video in this thread that had been withdrawn...



    And this one shows the power on transformation...

    Ow - that poor dude falling into the pond/pool whatever. His whole gear went under!

    But the most impressive is that last one - as the end blurb suggests, no wonder we have such problems viewing ourselves objectively.
