At the weekend we went to a friends wedding and for once I was able to carry my camera because I wanted to and not because I HAD to. This meant I was able to enjoy the whole day with no pressure to deliver (not that I ever do Weddings anyway) and I could merely shoot whatever took my fancy. I strapped my 85mm f1.4 Sigma to my 5D II and just took some ‘snaps’ of friends and loved ones etc. Oh ok, I did manage to see the Bride was left alone for 3 minutes and I managed to grab a few frames before she wilted.

Needless to say we all had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the favourable weather and gorgeous venue. The wedding ‘tog, by the way, carried with her not one but two assistants and between them I think they probably covered the whole event pretty well. You couldn’t blink for cameras! They only sported Nikon’s though so they couldn’t have been that good!

Sunday I spent a little time trying to find the Red Kite’s that frequent a field behind where we were staying and having strapped my 2X convertor to the 7D and added the hired 300mm, I reckoned on having a whopping 960mm of telephoto lens at my disposal, fully auto-focusing and f5.6 at its fastest. All was great before I realised the sun was directly in my face and the pesky Red Kite’s were nowhere to be seen!! Never did like birding all that much….

I did a silly thing when at the diving and that was deleting the files on the compact flash card before I had saved them onto my laptop. So, I have today been trying to save the files via Rescue PRO. Now, maybe I am being a bit silly but the Rescue PRO software I have that came free with the card will not load onto my mac. When I chased Sandisk they said I had an old version that wasn’t compatible with Snow Leopard and I would either have to purchase a new card or buy the new software!! The bloody cheek…I already had the goddamn program and expected a free update. Seriously not happy. Anyway, problem more or less solved when I realised I could re-load the program onto my old Windows PC and save the files that way! Bit drawn out but saved them and all is good in the Ellis Imagery world now.
