Thanks Ian. I appreciate the info. I understand what Jack is saying too. Asking one specific question makes it easier for some people to help. No offense taken. I’m just striking up conversation and getting insight from others. I’m open to all responses. It’s all good. Got a lot out of your post for sure.
I agree a wedding videographer should have a low key presence. I was in a wedding last year and not only did the guy have this bright light blasting each of us in the face as we walked down the aisle, but this guy stood 5 feet away from us with his camera and walked backwards. He even followed the bride and groom up to the alter and stood next to them with his camera ! I saw the final product about 5 months later. This guy had about 10 minutes worth of self credit rolling before he even got to the video. He didn’t include any of their music… it sucked.
So you’re shooting a wedding as a 1 man crew. Your A – cam is on a tripod with a fluid head and a remote, lets say on the left front quarter. Your C – cam is also on a tripod positioned on the left back quarter, basically this one is stationary with a wide angle view, set to just record throughout .Your B – cam is hand held, and used to move around the room to get spur of the moment shots, close ups etc. Did I get it right? Also you mentioned that the B – cam is the main cam…correct? I wasn’t sure if you meant the main B as in backup to the main camera, or main cam in general ( just labled B cam for reference ).
