"Sitting Pretty"

"Sitting Pretty"
© David A. Ziser

This image was made with available window light only. I oriented the bride's face towards the light to pick up a beautiful loop lighting pattern on her face. I thought the groom was OK in the harsher, almost split lighting situation. To soften the contrast, I brought in a large reflector to the right to open up the shadows a bit. I particularly like the opposite directions in which each person is leaning - I thing it adds to the somewhat contemporary feel of the portrait. Camera specs; Canon 20D fitted w17-85mm lens at 53mm, F 5.0 @ 1/50 second, ISO 400.
Enjoy! -David
