*disclaimer: I am (and my another friend) doing this for a friend for free - the couples has already done their formal wedding photo session thru a professional. So they just need 2 x clowns to help them "documentary" their reception.
It's been my dream to be an assistance of some REAL photographer and do a full day wedding session - right from the bride make up -> the end of receiption....
Except the couple decided to put me behind the view finder instead!!!
I have expressed my concern about I might not meet their expectation. But they told me they have done their formal photo session thru a professional studio, so we (me and my another friend - who happen to have a style of his photos pretty much have everything .6 over exp.) can screw up all we want, they just need someone to photo document the day.
So I said "Ok then".
I am confident enough to say I am able to produce some usable works for them - finger cross on "more than some" But I have the following problem.
It's a full day event! From 7:30am all the wait till to the moon shine and more! It's going to be A LOTS of photos taken! I take pride of my work and I don't want to just do a shoot and burn, hand over the CD with all the pics in there and forget about it. I want to be able to do some degree of post process. But I am not going to spend the entire Sunday in front of the computer to do pp - want to spend sometime with my family too!
So my question: with the In-Camera setting (or anything I am not aware of), how can I organise my files better, so it will help me to batch PP my files better?
I am hoping someone with experience or "in the know" can give me some advise. And ANY opinion and suggestion provided would be highly regard and apperciated.
(The following a just some supplementary info. - don't think it is related to my question much, but I just throw it out there)
I will be using the following:
1DMkIII (which I know it has in-camera setting to help organise file but I need to look up!)
70-200 IS MkII would be my main
24-70 I will bring it along with me for group shot or whenever it need the wide side
50 f/1.4 - for that occasional low moment.
I also have a ST-2E, 580EXII, 430EXII and a 320EX for my disposal. I got a new softbox now (yay!) And I also have a L358 . Oh, and also a (just in case)
Going to sell my 500D tonight so no second body.
The photo editing software I am going to use is Room 3. Which is something I am confident to use and I can do batch process with this software quite well.
