"Surrounded By Elegance"

"Surrounded By Elegance"
© David A. Ziser

This image was made a few years ago while on a shoot in Las Vegas. The location was the Mandalay Bay Hotel and the setting was just one of the several walkways on the way to the convention meeting rooms. I loved the large shapes and patterns created by the overhead lighting fixtures. They helped frame the bride perfectly in the composition. The other compositional elements that complete the framing of the bride were the railing behind the bride and the wall features to her left (our right) in the scene. I placed her at the intersection of a horizontal line running through the bottom third of the image and the vertical line running down the left third of the image - what I refer to as nodal point #1. I believe the composition works very well in this instance and gives us a nice pleasing result. Camera specs; Canon 5D fitted with a 24-105mm IS lens at 24mm, F5.0 @ 1/20 second, ISO 800. Enjoy! -David
