Hi,

Ive been asked to do a few Wedicam shots at a very flamboyant wedding, and I have been told that there will be some rice throwing going on during part of the ceremony. Im assuming they mean uncooked rice, but im wondering if this could cause a problem for my arm or any other parts, should any bit of rice get inside? Its a Flyer (older one).

Should I try and protect the arm somehow, or will this not cause a problem?

Thanks a lot,


Pete.

LOL

Anyway, in case it worrys you, use an armcover. Jerry Hill sells them, great stuff to have in your kit.
Or use a plastic bag. Make sure to take the rice with you, in these days of dark financial bad times.

For starters, tell them not to throw rice. It's bad for birds....
But yeah, just cover your arm if you're worried about it. Personally, I wouldn't be.
