I recently watched below video on You Tube on how one can set 2-3 remote camera's with PW and cable release and fire remote camera's from hand camera from over a distance.
Taking inspiration I wanted to implement this in wedding Photography to get a look of bride walking down the aisle. So I put 7D on a Joby tripod with a Tokina 11-16 at 16mm with setting of F4, ISO 500 @ 125 /sec, Have set the camera on servo with zone focus points selected.
Hoping that once the bride walks, I will start taking shots from low angle while shooting with another camera and both firing through PW.
- Camera was unable to focus on the bride on its own.
- Shots have not come sharp.mostly out of focus
Guess I fail to understand the meaning of "WIDE ANGLE LENS usually have every THING in FOCUS" ..really how ?
May be I should have put the camera in Auto Intelligent Mode where it would automatically pick up closest point or may be focus point to -Auto select , pick anything from 19AF points so that if bride is first on in line of sight then she gets picked up and with serva mode on camera will keep focusing...
I this right or am I doing something wrong,
Luckily, because I was doing this for the first time so didn't trust the technique and had my back up shots whcih have come "oh la la la"..bride actually ended up saying "I want2 re marry so that you take more pictures of me"lol....
