I generally don’t photograph weddings.Â It takes a special type of person to be able to shoot weddings well and enjoy doing it.Â I’m not that type of person.Â I made an exception for Ken and Angie’s wedding since the event was small and informal and the bride and groom were genuinely cool people.Â When it was all over, I shot nearly 600 photos in four hours, had one of the best meals ever (at the Flagstaff House), and made enough money to buy a new lens that I’ve had my eye on for a while.Â And, to be honest, it was actually pretty fun.
I’ve been toting the camera around this week since the weather is nice and it’s easy to be out for a long lunch hour without getting wet or frozen. Andrew and I made it down to the Platte river to shoot a few random frames. The sun was directly overhead, creating awful lighting conditions and everything was still washed-out brown, so there wasn’t much to shoot. I decided, therefore, to pick a theme and shoot no matter what the conditions were like. I chose to shoot the trash laying around the river. The Platte river near downtown has never been the most beautiful location. The amount of muck, grime and litter emphasized this fact very well.
