This image is one of my favorite images from yesterday’s shoot. What intrigues me most about this image is the composition and lighting. I had the bride lean in on the piano and positioned her face in the top left quarter of the frame or at nodal point #2. This positioning worked really well with with me shooting into the piano as I did here.
Lighting was going to be tricky. I chose to use my Z-Ray flashlight placing it in the bottom left-hand corner of the piano projecting the light directly onto her face. This created a very unusual and intriguing lighting pattern throughout the entire scene.
Working in Lightroom 4 I was able to control the rest of the tonalities and densities throughout the rest of the scene. This image is my final result. I think it looks pretty cool.
Camera specs: Canon 5D Mark III fitted with Tamron 28-300mm lens at 28 mm, F5.0, @ 1/60 second, ISO 800. Enjoy! – David
