This image is from a year or two ago and has been featured a times in my Technique Tuesdays and other lighting/composition discussions. I made it while photographing one of my favorite brides. She wanted some really nice outdoor images and the park across the street from the wedding venue filled the bill nicely.
The larger aperture isolated her nicely from the background. The lines of the canopy structure lead the viewers eyes right to her face. Lighting is from the left - Quantum T5d shooting through my Zumbrella which gives the very soft quality of lighting on the bride's face. The summer colors give a really nice feel to the image as well.
Camera specs: Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 70-300mm IS DO lens at 265mm, F5.6 @ 1/125 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! -David
