"A Day At The Park"

This is one of my favorite images of the week. Not just because it’s a nice portrait of the bride but, because of how the bride was illuminated.  One of the class members held a Quantum Trio directly behind the bride to add the accent light to the veil. The Trio was fired remotely with my FreeWire radio attached to my camera.  Here is where it gets interesting.  I had another class member hold a 42” Westcott Illuminator to camera right.  I zoomed my flash to 105mm, pointed it at the reflector and fired away.  The illumination on the front of the bride is the result of the flash bouncing off the reflector and coming in at just the right angle to create the beautiful and flattering light on the bride. Nothing like a little
“Photon Ricochet“ to light the subject. Camera specs; Canon 7D fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 82mm, F4.0 @ 1/200 second, ISO 200.  Enjoy!  -David
