"Music In The Air"
©David A. Ziser
Here is another image I made of our beautiful bride which I featured in my Wednesday's post, "Elegant Afternoon." [link]. The home in which we were shooting was just beautiful - just check out the pipe organ on the left - pretty amazing. The music room, once again provided us with a stunning location for portraits. As I've said so many times previously, my lighting is simple and fast to use. I had my assistant positioned camera left holding my flash which was shooting through my translucent umbrella. Today I would have used my Zumbrella [link] - shameless self-promotion;~) The challenge for this image was to keep the daylight coming through the windows from blowing out. I had to select a shutter sped that would allow me to pick up a bit of the ambient light, but at the same time be fast enough to maintain some detail in those windows. I think we reached a nice balance. Camera specs: Nikon D1x fitted with 18-35mm Nikkor lens at 31mm, F5.6 @ 1/50 second, ISO 400.
