p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A couple of Bridal Portraits


Hey all,

Not a wedding as such but had a chance to shoot these last week.
Friends had to have some of their wedding photos retaken after the photographer lost them. (not sure how that happened). Anyway I was free and after they finished we had a little play.

I didn't get any daylight, maybe 15 minutes so was limited. I just went about it as I would a portrait shoot.

Below pics are what we ended up with, I had a couple of ideas some worked out other not so well.

Thanks for looking.

You're doing a nice job of exposing for your OCF. #6 has some serious skin tone issues.

Your composition could be a lot stronger in most of these. #2 may be your best of the set.

Just my $0.02...

I like all of these except number 6 - not big on the pose and as mentioned, some serious skin tone issues as well. The others are really good!

As for favorites, I'd pick #3 (wish the couple were better exposed, but LOVE the concept), #7 & #8.

I'm sure they're pleased, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters.

Very nice work. The #3 still looks amazing, and I have been wanting to do something similar. Your off camera lighting is sweet. Can you tell us what your setup was?

G'day mate,
Lighting was fairly simple, a Nikon sb-900 into a softbox. Shot in manual mode, I usually start at 1-16th power but fir these I was at 1-8th, from there I adjust iso and aperture as needed to get more or less power out of it.
Regards
Bud

I think these are really nice, I am not seeing the skin tone issues with #6. Can someone enlighten me? And as far as the composition, would these be better if they were not all centered {for the most part}, meaning the rule of thirds?

Just trying to learn what some see that they feel can make images powerful? Again bbourizk, to me they are good, and I am sure the couple loved em.

Thanks for posting.

I think in any form of photography the background is very important.

G'day mate.
regarding composition it wasn't easy.
The first and last it was extremely dark, there was a construction fence camera left, I had to clone it out in the last to get a clean background and get the reflection from the water.

The ones with the Christmas signs I was hindered with the taxi's parking a few feet from where she was sitting and huge PO boxes on camera right people walking through the shot etc. The Tram one, well this was really the only place I could stand to get that shot, the bride wanted the steaks of light from the cars as well on camera left so ended up with this composition.

regards
Bud

Thanks Ace.
The bride and groom want one of those two framed. So I'm glad they turned out well for them
