"In The Shadow Of Your Smile"

I really don't pose the bride and groom this way anymore, but you know what? It's still a beautiful portrait study of the couple. I have to say, I love how this images turned out. It's classic Monte Zucker. The cool thing about the shot is the fact at it is pure window light, nothing more, nothing less. Remember, it's always about discerning the direction of light, then orientating the subjects to the light for that classic loop lighting pattern. Remember too, you can control the contrast on a window light portrait by simply moving your subjects away from the window as the ambient light intensity remains the same. Give it a little practice and you can travel really light and leave the flash at home. Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted sit 18-200mm IS lens at 70mm, F5.6 @ 1/40 second, ISO 1600. Enjoy! -David
