"Ecstasy of Love"

OK, maybe the title is a bit over the top, but I’ve been up since 6 a.m. getting ready for class and preparing the DPT blog post ;~)
Here is the story on this image. A few weeks ago we had wedding photographer, Matt McGraw [link]as a guest speaker at our Worldwide webcast [link]. I loved what Matt was doing with his lighting for his dramatic wedding photographs. I thought I would give it a try.
I had the bride and groom strike this dramatic pose and light them from above with my strobe. I was pretty close to them with the strobe so I could use a fairly small aperture which was my goal. The small aperture and fast shutter speed darkened the sky to a very dramatic blue color which added to the effect I wanted for this image.
I’m happy with my first attempt at something different. It’s never too late, or too old, to try a new style or technique.
Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with Sigma 8-16mm lens at 8mm, F 11 @ 1/250 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! -David
