"Dancing On The Square"

"Dancing On The Square"

I captured this image last year during one of my downtown Cincinnati weddings.  The reception was being held in one the most popular downtown hotels.  It’s close proximity to Fountain Square, where we began last Saturday’s Photo Walk, by the way, is always a favorite spot for brides and their wedding photography.  We were doing all the photography BEFORE the wedding which gave us ample time to head to the Square and get some nice shots. We had a moderately overcast day which made my job a little easier.  I wanted to underexpose the setting, back light the couple to have them pop off the page.  With my assistant about 12 feet behind the couple using the Quantum flash on full power, I fired away.  A few Lightroom tweaks added the dramatic look to the final presentation. Camera specs: Canon 40D fitted with Sigma 12-24mm lens at 12mm, F 8.0 @ 1/250 second, ISO 100.  Enjoy!  -David

  1. wow, wonderful shot, very expressive. It seems to be taken out of a classic movie snece, that couple might have become really happy with this shot.
