Back to lighting!

In this short blog I want to share a photograph taken at a wedding today.  I was not the photographer and therefore I wanted to stay in the background and remain unobtrusive, so I did not even use a flash.

The main light source came from a window which backlight the bride and groom, this also meant that it would be unsuitable to use AV or shutter priority, so manual settings were used and a negative exposure bias value to compensate for the backlighting.

The camera settings were 500 ISO, 1/50 shutter and f5.0 aperture on a 70mm lens.  The result produced was a rather dreamy high key image.  The loss of detail due to lack of front lighting contributes to the mood of the image.  I think it works!

  1. I do believe all the ideas you’ve offered for your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
