"Evening Fantasy"

"Evening Fantasy"

This image was taken several months ago. We headed to a local park to see if we could capture some great bridal sunset images. We never did get a vey good sunset but we did get some great cloud features throughout the sky.

The secret to a great shot is to get the subject, my beautiful bride, to pop out of the background. I did that with my off-camera flash coming in from camera right just out of camera range at 1/2 power.

The bride's beautiful profile against this magnificent background made for a striking image. Notice how the warm tones lead to her face and how the cooler tones compliment her gown.

OK, I did "goose" the clouds and the sky with the Vibrancy slider in Lightroom and then added the very soft, ethereal effect in Photoshop - just my way of having some fun.

Camera specs; Canon 40D fitted with 70-200mm IS lens at 145mm, F5.6 @ 1/200 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! -David
