"An Easy Afternoon"

Here is another image from the PSW Wedding Shootout from a few weeks ago in Las Vegas. I like the easy, relaxed feeling of this image, but I also like the way the light rays from the stain glass window and it’s reflections on the floor also lead your eyes to the bride. Lighting was from camera left shooting my Quantum flash through my Zumbrella to create the flattering “loop light pattern” on the subject. No on camera flash was used at all.  The ambient light from the slower exposure supplied the necessary fill illumination. All this results in a nice, simple, beautiful straight forward shot.  Camera specs; Canon 5D mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 40mm, F5.6 @ 1/40 second, ISO 1600.  Enjoy!  -David
