I feel a lot more confident about entering the wedding photography business. At first I was afraid at not having the optimum exposure for a wedding shoot and that my photos would not look as good as others who have taken pictures at a wedding for a long time, but now I can be sure that my shots are up to par, if not better than theirs!
