working with a camera has taken me around the world - Spain, Germany, Sweden, LA & Vegas, and recently out to Bollywood
ive worked on film sets as a Grip a focus puller, a gaffer , a boomie (audio) , a steadicam operator a camera operator and camera crane operator.
Recently another camera operator said during a conversation that wedding shoots were "entry level" film.
wow funny how people see things when they've never actually had the experience
On set for film, drama and shows, you can rack up take 4,5 6 7 etc, with weddings there's Take 1 only for 99% of the time

theres always going to be factors involved that are out of our control
losing light in a late afternoon photoshoot is not a problem for a photographer who turns on his flash.
the flash then creates another problem for the video guy as well as loss of light hes now doomed with banding on his video
this is overcome with some communication between the video op and the stills photographer.
Better planning of the wedding would make a huge difference
