This past weekend I attended my cousin’s wedding. The wedding was wonderful and lent itself to the opportunity to capture some wonderful images. However, there was one big problem…
You see, a little while back my cousin asked if I could take some pictures during her wedding. Nothing special or outrageous, but just a few mementos from a professional would be nice. I was excited to do so. However, upon arrival at the wedding I realized that I had left my DSLR at the hotel (30mins from the ceremony). There was no going back for it. What was I to do? I had just committed one of the cardinal sins of photography.
After calming down, I remembered those famous words said throughout the photography community, “The best camera is the one that’s with you.” So I pulled out my new HTC Incredible and captured images with that.
There was no learning curve for me. I had to get acclimated with the interface fast! I was surprised by the amount of settings that could be adjusted on this device. You could change the ISO, METERING, and WHITE BALANCE. This was pretty impressive stuff. I made the adjustment quickly and was able to capture some nice moments for my cousin.
