How would you photograph a funeral? Yesterday I received the following question email from Mandy, a DPS reader. I thought that together we’d probably answer it better than I would alone.
“This week a close friend of our family passed away suddenly. His family know that I’m a keen (hobby) photographer and called last night to see if I would be able to photograph the funeral to capture the service for the benefit of other family members who are overseas. I said yes – but I’m terrified. I’ve never photographed a wedding let alone a funeral – do you or any of your readers have any tips for me? The funeral is on Monday.”
Any tips on how to photograph this funeral that you can offer Mandy would be greatly appreciated.
