"Only Moments To Go"

Here is another image from Saturday's wedding. We had just finished taking all of the group photographs and in the few minutes remaining, I suggested we get a few more shots from the balcony overlooking the room. I thought a beautiful image of the bride against the spectacular setting of the room would add nicely to the wedding day coverage as well as a very beautiful wedding portrait. I illuminated the bride with my Z-Ray [link]. It's easy for the assistant to see the exact lighting pattern he places upon the bride's face because the Z-Ray is a constant source. I adjusted the shutter speed to pick up the ambient light of the room, posed the bride in a strikingly, classic profile view, used a larger aperture to soften the background, and took the photograph. The bride loved the image. Camera specs; Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 58mm, F5.6 @ 1/30 second handheld, ISO 2000 Enjoy! -David
