"Stain Glass Melody"

Here is one more image captured during my Pre-Con at PSW last week.  The church was a bit of a challenge to work in because of the brightness of the stain glass windows relative to the rest of the church surrounds.  More on this later this week.  Anyway, to minimize the problems, I positioned the bride to the left side of the alter area and composed her between the two paintings hanging on the front walls of the church.  I slowed down the shutter to pick up the detail of the surrounds and let the "stain glass" exposure fall where it would.  No problem, a tweak in Lightroom finished this traditional wedding portrait of our bride.  The low vantage point and wide angle lens added just a bit of the “dramatics" to the image.  Lighting camera right 8 feet away 1/8 power on my Quantum through my Zumbrella. Camera specs; Canon 7d fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 18mm, F5.6 at 1/30 second, ISO 800.  Enjoy!  -David
