one of the weddings is suppose to be very traditional wedding and the pastor(?) doesnt want any pictures during the ceremony, so afterwards i would have to set it all up again just to get the pictures id love the experience but id feel bad if i was the only one that they hired to take pictures and they came out bad. plus i have social anxiety so im really nervous about doing something like this but doing it would help me get over the anxiety. my dads a psycologist and never realized that my sister, myself, and my brother had this problem. my brother also has to deal with depression alot anyways back ontopic i still need to get out and shoot the prairie dogs here. ive been meaning to for what?? two weeks now? and still havent gotten out there. last night i was asked by the school to take pictures of the putt putt tourny we had here but no one played each floor was asked to build a section for the course and then there was a vote and the one that won got a pizza party. so thats all that happened. so i didnt really get anything worth while. i also have sooooo many ideas on stuff to do but im so limited because of living in the dorms. i cant build anything and i cant set up a "studio" but im transfering out of here back home (tx) so ill be able to finally be creative

If you do them, I'm sure you'll do them well.
Personally, and I'm not trying to talk you out of it but, was it me? I'd rather shoot macro of wild grizz tonsils.

Think about it. The happiest day of some woman's life and she want's everything perfect. She want's perfect memories. I've noticed over the years that women have a different eye for perfection than guys. No doubt, if I shot a wedding, her butt would be too big, and it would be my fault.

i agree with thedirt about tagging along with a photographer if you can. ive been tagging along with Duke Morse from austin tx and ive learned more from him than i have in the 6 or 7 classes i have taken.

That's what I hate about weddings, portrait, etc. it's hard to figure out exactly the results they want...the prairie dogs would be lots more fun !!!

In the long run, digital is just so much more inexpensive than film. No development costs, no media costs, etc. I still prefer the feel of film though. The dynamic range is much larger, the noise has a different feel, the emulsion differs from film type to film type, etc. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but film just feels so much different than digital.

You sound like you have a bit of experience, but another recommendation (that someone else recommended too) is take a class. If there is a community college near you, their classes tend to be very cheap and not too involved. It'll teach you the ropes of exposure, rules of photography (rule of thirds, etc) and it'll sort of "force" you to get used to your camera. Plus, depending on the instructor, they may know a lot about the camera.

Another option (I'm not sure how feasible it is), is perhaps a photographer in your area would let you tag along for a day. If a local photographer is into shooting things other than portraits, like landscapes for example, maybe they'll take you with them out for a day and teach you a few things.

I'm still a student here at the university, studying mechanical engineering. I've taken one class just for fun, but had been involved in photography long before that. I started shooting on a Canon A-1 (film) with a 70-210mm Telephoto/Macro lens, 50mm prime, and 24mm wide angle. 35mm format. Now, I shoot on a Canon 400D with a 70-200mm f/4 "L" telephoto lens, 50mm f/1.8II prime, and the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 stock kit lens. I'm basically self taught, with the exception of that one class.

My last recommendation is to join a site like iStockPhoto. They have a very large user base and tons of photographers that are willing to help out. Plus, you get to make a few extra $$ on the side if someone buys your images .

Good luck!

I agree with film, I will always love my old film camera Canon Elan IIE but I love the new digital one for different reasons. Just got Nikon D80.

Have taken a couple non-credit classes at the community college, good but the range of abilities is so big...you never seem to get alot done. I love the idea of going out into the field with a prof.photographer. I'm going to look into that. And check out istockphoto.

Thanks for all the great advice. I will have to load in some pics for some thoughts and suggestions.
