This image was made at a local hotel, Marriott Riverside, a few years ago. The sad news is that recently remodeled the hotel and the stairway in now completely blocked by their new architectural features. This was always a great location to shoot whenever we had a wedding at the Marriott. Anyway, look how the wide angle lens together with my low vantage point accentuate the lines leading right to the bride. My Quantum Flash coming in from camera right shooting through a translucent umbrella supplied the directional illumination. The slower shutter speed picked up additional nuances of the surrounds. Camera specs: Canon 40 fitted with 10-22mm wide angle lens at 10mm, F5.6 @ 1/40 second, ISO 800.
