On Wedding Photographers with I-Phones.

Considering some of what I see passing as "professional" work from mommies with cameras these days one could hardly do worse.

"Journalistic style" meaning point the lens everywhere and "spray and pray" and then give the couple over 4/5,000 photos on DVD/Thumb Drive and let them try viewing it before they divorce or die in the coming decades.

No training or sense of lighting. 32 exposures of the group with bride and groom's family, best men and flower girls - duplicated in similar numbers for every group shot. (the 32 comes from a wedding group I actually looked at from the wedding of a friend's daughter)

Makes the old days of Hasselblads, Potato masher flash or set up lightnig, 12-15 rolls of film and a quiet proof book seem like ancient history.

I still have a Minolta 35-70mm f4 AF lens I bought many years ago. One of the early zooms was the Nikon 43-86mm f3.5 from 1963.
