    It's my first time photographing at a funeral.
    What should I focus on? What is important? Any advise is welcome!
    I have no experience at funeral photography.

    People filing past. A high level with a line. Moving casket. Line of cars. Peel around grave site. Before and during.
    Family, family, family.

    Only have done important people for news, but would think it's the same.
    You do anything ask a story, you've done it.

    I've done a couple for the families, They wanted to see the people, especially since they would not have a chance to talk to very many.
