A wedding video, Part 2 of 5

This segment was a little too difficult to edit. Key moments in the footage weren't in proper focus, a shortcoming of manual focus DSLRs without the proper (expensive) rig setup (hello Sony VG20!). While most wedding highlight reels favour 1-2 sec clips, I couldn't resist lingering on Catherine's (and Aaron's) faces for tens of seconds at a time... it just feels more comfortable in the dappled light of a spring day... languid and unhurried... living in the moment.
The audio was unuseable due to the wind noise and this is where a lav mike would have come in handy!
Technical details: Canon 60D, Tokina 11-16f2.8, Tamron 17-50f2.8, Canon 70-20f4L, Azden shotgun mike, Manfrotto monopod. Edited in iMovie'09
My video education (adventure) goes on!
Music by Martin Sexton "Marry Me", Alison Krauss "I Will", Janet Monheit "I'm Glad There Is You", and Creedence Clearwater Revival "Hey Tonight".
