"A Beautiful Day"

This is the image featured in today's tutorial.  It was made at one of Cincinnati's most popular wedding venues.  I love this location because of all the creative possibilities it offers for exciting compositions with my brides and grooms.  This is just a straight forward portrait of the bride but it's how she's framed and how the various elements surround her that make the shot work. Want to see how I put these kinds of images together, check out the tutorial below. Camera specs; Canon 50D fitted with 18-200mm lens at 28mm, F5.6 @ 1/50 second, ISO 1600.  Enjoy!  -David

    I really like the lighting in the background. It really makes the portrait more interesting than if the background was dark. The picture still shows that the Bride is the main attraction. But it uses the background to full advantage.
