How the royal wedding was shot

Canon writes about how The Times used Shootitlive to create a live photo feed during the Royal Wedding. It’s published on Canon Professional Network (CPN) which is the world-wide website for Canon pro photographers to discover all of the latest news, technical articles, and advice for using Canon professional imaging equipment.

The CPN writer Mark Alexander spoke to The Times picture editor Paul Sanders to find out how they covered the biggest pre-planned news event of the year. Click below to checkout how the photographic coverage of the Royal Wedding was planned and exactly how it was shot.

“We got this new piece of software that enabled us to transmit the picture straight to a live gallery on the website, bypassing the picture desk completely and publishing the images within 30 seconds of them being taken”

Paul Sanders, Picture Editor, The Times

The British Monarchy may seem reserved but they do know how to properly celebrate. Last Friday Prince William and Kate Middleton (now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) made their vows to each other during their wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Looking through the +200 photos that The Times live published to their site and to their iPad app I have to admit that we’re still gripped with wedding fever here at Shootitlive HQ. The pic of the week, from The Times snapper Marc Aspland, really captured the moment and the beauty of Kate Middleton (Yeah, her sister Pippa is quite good looking as well).

PICTURE OF THE WEEK S01E08

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter and please, let me spice it up with some Danish delight. Last Thursday the world’s most famous royal twins was named in the historic Holmen’s Church in Copenhagen. Until the very end the proud parents Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Crown Princess Mary kept the names to themselves only to reveal the well kept secret at the last moment. The new prince of Denmark is named Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and the new princess of Denmark is named Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda. According to experts, this royal baptism will start a new trend of baby names in Denmark.
