Recently I was "nominated" to photograph a friends wedding in rural Thailand. For those that have not experienced a Thai wedding, it appears to be rather chaotic and unorganized, especially from a westerner's point of view. The event is an all day affair commencing at 7am and finishing around midnight. Although I have attended several Thai weddings previously I am still unable to obtain a definitive answer as to when the couple are married. As with most things Thai, this is not considered important. My gear was not ideal for this type of photography, but there was no time to chase alternate gear for one event. I was aware that 2 cameras were required with 2 flash units capable of FP modes. Due to the fact that these events are held in rural areas at rural homes, the venues are nowhere near ideal for bouncing light and the photography of such an event is not considered number one priority. Nothing stops for the photo, and nobody will step out of the frame, even when asked. One must do what they can to get shots. Ultimately it is all good fun and a great test for where I was at with shooting some event like this. Afterwards I learned a lot PP 1200 shots and culling them down to a reasonable number. With the gear I carry, highlight blowouts are common, and therefore I tried to use fill flash for all outdoor shots. Add to this that the majority of shots were of Thais, and in most cases a little fill flash can make a lot of difference to Asian features. My gear: EP1 EPM1 Oly 17mm F2.8 Oly 45mm F1.8 Oly 14-42mm MRC FL600R FL36R 4 batteries 4 x 32GB SD cards I discovered that by 8am I had removed the 17mm and ran with the kit zoom all day and night on the EP1 + FL600R. The EPM1, 45mm + FL36R was hanging over one shoulder for the chance when I was able to organise a dedicated shot. Although the kit zoom is not fantastic, it zoom range was essential, as was the quick AF. Even running on the EP1 I rarely missed a shot. I discovered that the EPM1 TTL functionality is quite reliable and was able to fire the FL36R consistently in conjunction with the 45mm. The same cannot be said for the EP1. Since upgrading to firmware 1.4 the TTL is crap. I reverted to manual mode throughout the day to have more control over the flash. I must say the FL600R is a great flash with excellent re cycle times. I quickly got to a stage where I just fired and was not consciously waiting for the charge light to appear. The same cannot be said for the FL36R. Some shots follow. I must must highlight at this point that I am only an amateur, and this was a freebie. I would like to improve significantly before considering anything business related in this field.
