"Wedding Day Smiles"

Here is one more image from my Wedding Shootout at PSW. I love working in the Convention Center in Orlando. The geometrics of the architecture are really fun to work with.
In this image I decided to work with the vertical elements of the windows. Although window light would seem to be the light source of choice, I chose instead to use my off camera Quantum flash.
Bringing it in from camera left was a bit challenging because I could have easily cast the bride’s shadow on the vertical elements. By positioning her slightly behind the larger element, her shadow fell on the backside.
The faster then normal sync shutter speed allowed me to vignette the lighting on her giving an almost Hollywood style lighting on my subject. I basically cheated the sync to obtain that effect.
The easy pose, nice lighting, and simple location made for a flattering portrait of my bride.
Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 145mm, F8.0 @ 1/400 second, ISO 800. Enjoy! -David
