| p.1 #4 · p.1 #4 · 40 Image "Brenizer" Shot from Friday's Wedding |
The 2nd shot is a single image, just edited the original post. I completely understand the question of why, and the answer is simply DOF. I dont have a sample shot, but I did take a pic with my 24-70mm2.8 and with the same composition, everything is in focus. I didnt have a lens wider than 35mm with an aperture of 1.4, and at 35mm the same thing happened. I had to stand far enough away, that wide open, everything was in focus. This is a venue that has replications of placed in Philly, this being the Art Museum, and there have been a ton of shots taken on these stairs. So, when the bride and groom asked for their pics on the steps, I wanted to give them, and the venue something different than what they have already seen. So to answer your question, the reason why, is simply to get a shot of the bride and groom on the steps with a shallow DOF. You can see in my SLR Lounge article how much of the background fit in the shot with my first image, with that DOF. So a DOF like I have in this image, fitting in as much as I did, would be impossible with an of the lens or equipment that I had available to me. Hope that makes sense.
