“Leading Man”

Leading Man

Maybe I should have called it “leading lines” man since nearly every line in the image leads right to the groom. The hand rail easily leads the eye to our subject, but notice too how I placed him in the composition so that all those lines in the ceiling direct the viewer’s eye right to our groom – pretty cool.  Lighting was accomplished by placing a Metz 45 CT-1 camera positioned left out of camera range up the stairs.  It was fired remotely with my Quantum radios.  The accent light on the groom’s left was the result of the light coming in a window behind him.  This is an older film image but I still enjoy it for it’s compositional values.  Camera specs; Hasselblad 500 CM fitted with 40mm Distagon, F5.6 @ 1/60 second, Kodak Vericolor 800 film.  Enjoy!  -David
