Aperture Photography is ready of anything a Hudson Valley Wedding May Bring. Your Deserve the Best !

Taken in Albany, NY at night without flash

Taking on the challenges of shooting Weddings in the Upstate, NY and the Hudson Valley is quite challenging. The weather and venues is so unpredictable and you must be ready for anything.  Aperture Photography shoots wedding from Sunny golf courses to the darkest Gothic churches in the world.  many times flash is not allowed.  We must be ready, I love 11 North Pearl Street a wonderful old bank.  It has so much atmosphere and is dimly lit as it should be.  Excessive use of flash would only ruin the mood.  So Aperture Photography has made sure we can capture all the beauty and originality of the unique venue.  Below is a camera labs article I found quite interesting.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III thoughts...

The EOS 5D Mark III makes a raft of improvements to the best-selling 5D Mark II to become one of the most complete and well-balanced DSLRs around. The earlier 5D Mark II - not to mention the original 5D Mark I - were all about their big full-frame sensors, often at the cost of other features. This is what you were paying for and many other specifications from continuous shooting to autofocus were actually fairly modest; many owners were also disappointed to find the build and weather sealing were not as good as the price tag may have implied.

The EOS 5D Mark III addresses these criticisms, upgrading the continuous shooting, metering, viewfinder, bracketing, build and most of all the autofocus system. The screen is also bigger and wider, there's now twin memory card slots, and a number of small but useful improvements to the movie capabilities. Put together they add up to a powerful all-round DSLR.

Any yet, where is the killer feature on the Mark III? The major headline grabber? The specification to drive sales and envy from rivals? The sensor resolution and movie frame rates are essentially unchanged. There's still no built-in wireless (be it GPS or Wifi), no 1080/60p video, nor an articulated screen or clean HDMI output. The burst shooting is quicker and the build tougher, but it's no pro sports camera. There's still no built-in flash, which also means no built-in wireless flash control and no continuous AF for movies either. Arguably the most significant upgrade is the autofocus, but while inheriting the state-of-the-art 61-point AF system of the flagship 1D X is a very welcome move, is it really the feature we're supposed to be most excited about? Indeed it's also testament to the power of drip-feeding new features that one of the things I'm most impressed with is the chance to finally bracket more than three frames.

The EOS 5D Mark III is the camera the 5D Mark II really deserved to be. Sure it's still a full-frame camera with 1080p video, but one that's now backed-up by very respectable AF, continuous shooting, composition, bracketing and the promise of superior build. By addressing criticisms of the Mark II, Canon has produced a much more rounded DSLR that feels capable of handling most situations with confidence.
