Pre-shoot prep – How to photograph a funeral..

The job today.. Photographing the funeral of the father of one of my dads friends. Never done this before, so the good old internet helped me out there – http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-photograph-a-funeral-4-tips-i-hope-you-never-have-to-use

So far, I know I only need to photograph the end of the ceremony at the crematorium with the flowers, so being non-intrusive and invisible will be a key point to me. I have already spoken to the client beforehand to discuss the requirements, which is doubly important than just turning up and snapping away, as you would assume.

I’ll be on a 17-50 and a 50 f/1.4 predominantly, nothing fancy or on a large scale, and definitely no flash.

I’m off later on so you shall hear how it went later this afternoon!
