"Perfectly Poised"

"Perfectly Poised"

Here is another image I made back in my Nikon days.  It was a beautiful wedding at one of our most beautiful venues, the Netherland Hilton hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio.  We were scheduled to do all the wedding photographs before the ceremony - always the best way to get great shots.  The room was set and served as a wonderful back drop for the image of the bride alone. What I like the most is the symmetry of the image, the chairs, fabric, architecture, and the other leading lines presented here in the photograph.  Back in those days I was still using a tripod for my really slow "shutter drag" shots.  Lighting on the bride is coming in from camera left - Quantum through an umbrella at 1/4 power. The slower shutter speed picked up the ambient light nicely complimenting the overall image. Camera Specs: Nikon D1x fitted with 18-35mm lens at 30mm, F 5.6 @ 1/6 second (tripod), ISO 400.  Enjoy!  -David


  1. It is surprising you got a good shot with a Nikon. Probably used a PC to edit it? LOL!

    Beautiful shot David!

    Oh and see you at the Photoshop shindig!


  2. Those must have been the good old days for you, shooting with that trusty Nikon.
