Reader Alex Milne writes from England:
Greetings from the TOP Royal Wedding Correspondent!!!
It was a truly spectacular event for a photographer to attend. Amazing plethora of photographic opportunities over a three-day period. I have never seen so many photographers in one place at one time. The only modern parallel I imagine might be the Olympics. Trends I observed were professional photographers mainly shooting with Canon and a lesser take-up of Nikon. All the pros weighted down with a very long telephoto zoom and a second body with a wide angle zoom. No surprise really there. And also no surprise that pros only wanted two things—a photo of the happy couple in their carriage and the kiss on the balcony. As someone who did not want to pay the £900 asking price for the key balconies I had to rely on a £2.99 step I carried around with me! I also concentrated a little like Cartier Bresson did (sadly no comparison with image quality :-)) on the crowds and the street atmosphere.
I have put some images that I felt would be interesting to the general public on my blog.
