"Surrounded By Love"

Now be forewarned, when using a lens with this wide field of view, you've got to really careful about subject distortion. That's the reason I kept the couple near the center of the frame. Even in doing that, the image was showing a slight bit of distortion but not enough to effect the overall impact of the image.
My careful placement of the subjects at nodal point #4 let the super wide angle Sigma lens really soar to the ceiling adding a wonderful dramatic feel to the composition. It's a simple, straightforward "couples" pose that most of us take of our brides and grooms during a wedding but it's the wide angle view that makes the image be different and impacting.
Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with Sigma 8-16mm lens at 8mm, F5.6 @ 1/40 second, ISO 800. Enjoy! -David
Hey gang, that's it for today. I got this post in right under the wire - didn't want to miss a post you know. Yesterday was absolutely crazy with planning for our PhotoPro Network Summer School link and next year's PhotoPro Expo - details to be forthcoming.
Anyway, I wrapped about 12:00 a.m., and was moving a bit more slowly today. Oh, I did have a nice break in the day when Jason Lykins, co-reviewer for the Best App site with Terry White, stopped by. We relaxed, enjoyed a nice lunch, and talked iPad stuff for a good part of the afternoon.
Don't worry, Business Day Thursday will back on schedule tomorrow. I think you'll really get a kick out of tomorrow’s post.
See ya' tomorrow around noon, David
