My 5000 & 50
I’ve seen these cheap camera challenges before on the inter web but I never thought I would have to do one my self. So let me explain, not exactly cheap just not the proper equipment.
My cousin invited me to his wedding recently which I was glad to go. However, as a photographer I had to ask “ Do you want me to shoot your special day?” he and his wife’s response was NO. We want you to enjoy yourself. With a heavy heart I agreed.
Fast forward to the wedding day: I decided to bring my Nikon d5000, Sigma 1.4 50mm & Sb 900 (flash) just to capture some family and friends celebrating my cousin and his wife’s joyous occasion. Once I arrived at the church I learned there Photographer DIDN’T show up yet!!! As you can probably imagine I had no choice but so spring into action…have no fear cousin Rikki is here lol lol lol.
Needles to say I was hella nervous about shooting a wedding without the proper equipment but then again what is the proper equipment?
My point, once you’re properly trained and know what you’re doing it really shouldn’t matter what type of gear you use, it’s the person operating the gear that counts!
