On our way to the wedding rehearsal yesterday, we stopped in to the camera store and bought the Light Sphere II by Gary Fong. Skeptical at first, we only bought one. We tried it out for a few shots last night and decided to try it for the wedding.
I have to say that it totally rocks. It really brought out some nice soft light for portraits and group shots when the available light wasn’t good. I used the “fong” up until the reception when the low, white ceiling provided a good bounce light.
After many hours of shooting, though, we are done for the evening. We’re presently downloading the many hundreds of pictures to the server for processing. That’s the tedious part.
