"Afternoon Romance"

"Afternoon Romance"
© David A. Ziser

This image was made as part of a series for the couple's engagement shoot. This little stream is just a short distance for my studio and is always on the radar as one of the sites I like to visit. The rock bed offers a safe place for them to stand and when the light and time of day is just right, I can under expose the foliage, add my back-light, and get the rich, saturated colors that make this such a nice shot for the couple. Camera specs; Canon 30D fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 26mm, F4.5 @ 1/125 second, ISO 100. Enjoy! -David


  1. This is my favorite of your couples shots so far (several months of following your list). The thing that's bugging me is where did you put your back light? The light is reflecting on the water between them so it can't be on a light stand too close or it would be visible. If off to the side thus hidden by the people, the angle on the water would be different. Far back in the woods? Seems possible, but that's a lot of light to throw.

    Care to give a hint or two?

  2. Great setting... beautiful picture.
    May I ask you a question?
    I saw your signature on the picture, Do you sign all your pictures, or enlargements, or digital files?
    Do you sign by hand or digitally?
    And for last... What font did you use to do that?
