"Just Breezin' By The Bridge"

This is one of the images that I made at the KPPA shoot out this past Sunday evening. We got a lot of great shots of our model but this one with the wide-angle image is one of my favorites. In the setting sun the lens' wide angle view certainly adds to the dramatic feeling of the photograph.  Look at the bride's positioning in the composition. The fact that she she placed forward in the composition added to the visual interest of this image. It almost seems as if the bridge is pushing her into the viewer's eyes. Lighting was accomplished with my off-camera flash coming in from the the right to give me the loop lighting pattern on the subject's space. Camera specs Canon 40 D. fitted with 10–22mm, F8 @ 1/320 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! – David


  1. David how did you sync at 1/320th? Will the 40D do this on a regular basis or did you turn the camera upside down.

  2. David,

    a) Manual, or Av mode with Exp.COmp -2 stops?

    b) Dark top is flash upside down, or Lightroom/PS, or ?


  3. Oh and, flash bare, or in umbrella, or with modifier?

  4. Hi David. This is an awesome photograph, one that I hope many photogs are looking at. Natural light photos are amazing, but there is nothing like creating an image like this with beautiful lighting. Thank you for your post.
