"An Elegant Afternoon"
©David A. Ziser
Here is an image I made during this young lady's bridal shoot. We used the groom's mother's home which offered a really beautiful backdrop for the photography. In this shot, notice how I framed the bride within the interior frames of the two doorways. I brought my flash in from camera left to create the beautiful key lighting on her face. The lighting was enhanced even more by the natural light coming in from a window - camera right and slightly behind the bride. Balancing the ambient with the key light resulted in a really nice, simple portrait of our bride. Camera specs: Nikon D1x fitted with 18-35mm Nikkor at 32mm, F 4.0 @ 1/100 second, ISO 640. Enjoy! -David
